La Barbecue decided to expand with a larger trailer, instead of opening that brick and mortar on South Congress. The new trailer was unveiled this week. Inside, there's a flat top grill, cheese melter, and fryer, so the staff can dish out special items during lunch and dinner hours.

The bright yellow and black artwork was done by artist Carol Jones, who also designed the current logo. For barbecue lovers waiting in line, there’s even a television screen built into the side of the trailer. The original trailer is now defunct, but general manager Ali Clem speculates that it might be turned into a preorder window.

In more barbecue news, pitmaster Esaul Ramos isn’t with the barbecue trailer anymore. Taking his place is 21-year-old Dylan Taylor, who was trained by John Lewis himself.
