Barbeque Mercantile opens in Austin!
On Saturday, I stopped by the grand opening of Barbeque Mercantile, a grill/smoker shop at 5003 Burnet Road in Austin. Owners Kathy & Ed Bousquet were gracious, friendly hosts. Previously, they and the shop were in Colorado Springs. But Kathy, a Texas native, and her husband, Ed (Where are you from, Ed?), have returned home to continue their work. Back to the grand opening...live music, jerky, all kinds of meat samples, and a pristine shop of grills, smokers, grilling/smoking accessories, sauces, rubs, etc. Here are the pics I took:
