It's the golden age of BBQ here in Austin!  Sure, there's always been great BBQ here in Central Texas, but never before have we had so many fantastic options with such critical acclaim.

Every four years Texas Monthly ranks the Best BBQ in TX on "The Big List," but it's not due until 2021.  This year Texas Monthly gives us a smaller list, The Top 25 New BBQ Joints in TX.  They've done the heavy lifting (eating) so that we can enjoy the fruits (uh, meats) of their labor.  It really is The Lord's work.

With winners from Austin, Dripping Springs, Pflugerville, Georgetown and Hutto on this list, Central Texas is well represented and we're never too far from a great BBQ joint.  To the winers I say congratulations and I'll see you soon!

Take a look at Texas Monthly's full list.
