The operations manager of Black's Barbecue in Lockhart tells Virginia Wood that "the new Austin outlet is not affiliated with the Lockhart original, and there will be some legal wrangling about the use of the family name." The forthcoming Barton Springs barbecue joint is co-owned by the twin great-grandsons of Edgar Black, and they both worked at the Lockhart location. [Chronicle]
