On March 11, late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel aired a segment featuring his trek with sidekick Guillermo to track down the best barbecue in Austin. That’s a tall order, to be sure.
Jimmy and Guillermo (pictured above) chowed down on some of Austin’s finest barbecue at four spots: Franklin Barbecue, La Barbecue, Micklethwait Craft Meats and John Mueller Meat Co. The duo porked out on brisket, ribs and other barbecued meats, with Guillermo grumbling at the final stop that he was stuffed.
In the end, Jimmy wimped out and picked all four barbecue joints as the “winner.” Here at SpareFoot, we aren’t wimpy when it comes to barbecue. We’re not afraid to say which barbecue spots we worship.
