The February issue of D Magazine is scheduled to hit newsstands on Monday, January 18 Thursday, January 21 (thanks, Tim). The cover story, The Best Barbecue in Dallas, will reveal the top 16 ‘cue joints around town. The top picks were determined by Daniel Vaughn, the self-described “BBQ Snob,” who details his obsession with barbecue on his blog Full Custom Gospel BBQ. The accompanying photographs, shot by our go-to food photographer Kevin Hunter Marple, are gorgeous. I’ll post a link to the story as soon as it’s available online and I look forward to some spirited discussions on barbecue over the next few weeks. I’ve got a gift certificate to The Grape for anyone who can guess Vaughn’s top pick.
UPDATE: Hint: I should have said in and around Dallas.
