Who is the best pitmaster in Texas?
There is no doubt that Texas is home to a bunch of very, very talented BBQ pitmasters. The way that they tend pits and deftly handle all of the variables that affect how meat turns out is beyond impressive to me. And much respect for the way they, day in and day out, fight through the heat and smoke and sheer exhaustion of their craft. With due respect to all of the people who give us the slow-smoked meats that we love, I ask today for your pick for the best of the bunch. Of all the pitmasters in Texas, who is the greatest?
