The Last Brisket Show

Sky Full of Bacon 03: The Last Brisket Show from Michael Gebert on Vimeo.

It's Sky Full of Bacon, the Chicago-based high-definition video podcast about interesting people and great-looking food.

Taylor, Texas is a legendary barbecue mecca, home to BBQ joints still serving up brisket and sausage like they did 75 years ago-- though the cottonpickers they served then are computer programmers today. We go inside Louie Mueller Barbecue, the most smoke-stained restaurant in America, as owner Bobby Mueller shows us how great barbecue is made. And we'll sit a spell with Vencil Mares, 84-year-old proprietor of Taylor Cafe, as he reminisces about the wild old honky tonk days in his place. (13:06) More info at

UPDATE 9/8: I was shocked to learn today that Bobby Mueller had passed away over the weekend at the age of 69. I hope my video is a fitting tribute to a man who served thousands some of the best BBQ in the world.
