Legendary Texas BBQ proprietor Bobby Mueller passed away two years ago today. I never met Bobby, but I have since had the privilege of getting to know some of the family he left behind. Bobby was known far and wide, won award after award (including the prestigious James Beard Award, "America's Classic" Division, May 2006), and left behind an enduring Texas BBQ legacy. (Coincidentally, my first visit to Louie Mueller Barbecue was the morning that Bobby passed away.) I wish I could have had the pleasure of meeting him. Our thoughts are with all of the Mueller family, on this special day of remembrance.
