Sunday lunch at Full Moon

Just wrapped up lunch at Full Moon BBQ (Jasper, AL). Outside-chopped pork plate, with steamed cabbage and collard greens. Before any purists jump on me about the sauce on it, I ordered it with sauce on the side.

Sunday pit tour at Truth BBQ (Brenham, TX)

These days, my Twitter timeline is full of praise for Truth BBQ (Brenham, TX). Truth is fast making a name for itself among Texas BBQ aficionados. I haven't been able to try it yet but plan to do so as soon as I can...and certainly before Truth BBQ joins us at our 6th annual Gettin' Sauced! festival! Anyway, last Sunday, on his way back to Austin from the 4th annual Houston Barbecue Festival, our friend, very faithful blog follower, and huge Texas BBQ fan Joe Wagner stopped at Truth. They were sold out, but he got a tour of the pit. And he sent me these pics. (Joe also sent me quite a few pics from the Houston Barbecue Festival. I'll post soon.)
