Austin is synonymous with barbecue. Usually that refers to the golden trio: brisket, ribs, and sausage, but people sometimes forget about the fourth: pulled pork. Slow-cooked, shredded pork drenched in sauce is the perfect meal to while away the summer days, either in its pure form or in a sandwich. This updated map includes Lamberts, Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ, and more. Is your favorite place for pulled pork missing? Let us know on the tipline or in the comments below.
