Why such a fuss about Texas BBQ?
I'm on the record saying we're witnessing a wave of enthusiasm about Texas BBQ. Granted, I've only been in Texas since the fall of 2007, but the level of interest in Texas BBQ now versus then is not even comparable. But why? Why the fuss about Texas BBQ? Is it because so many new (and great) BBQ joints have popped up recently? Is it the rise of social media, which gives laypersons audiences for their pictures and reviews and tweets and check-ins? Is it something else? If I'm wrong about the increasing euphoria, by all means, say so. But if I'm right, what are the reasons for the madness?
