Welcome to Eater’s first-ever Barbecue Week, highlighting the very best thing Austin does. Starting right now all the way through Friday evening, Eater Austin, along with the rest of the Eater family, will obsess over all things smoked meats (and rightly so). Look out for a whole bunch of features, maps, guides, polls, and photo essays highlighting the very best Austin and nearby vicinities has to offer. Plus, follow along on Saturday for a special barbecue line live-blog.
Keep an eye on this page for an archive of all Barbecue Week stories. Track everything in the usual spots—Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, where you can tag your favorite barbecue photos with #eateratx, and we’ll regram our favorites.
