BBQ Snob Daniel Vaughn Readies for His Close-Up on No Reservations

The final season of No Reservations kicks off with a Dallas accent, or snob as he is: Our own Daniel Vaughn creator of the blog-gone-book Full Custom Gospel Barbecue. The episode which will air on September 3 on Travel Channel, with host Anthony Bourdain, was shot in Austin and involves, DUH, barbecue. Before meeting up with Vaughn, Bourdain professed his love for ‘cue from Kansas City. Will he change his mind? Will he suck the bone? Will we watch? Hell yes to all three.

    Had some pretty terrific barbecue in a truck stop at I-20 and Highway 271 (just north of Tyler) last week. Texas Best Smokehouse had a line of locals for their daily special (beef tips on rice, $8.99). Their two meat combo ($12.99) came with 2 sides and the to-go container weighed at least 2 pounds. Don’t miss the cakes, they are made by a bakery in Longview and sold by the slice for $3.49.

    It was so good, when we passed by the next day we stopped again to get dinner to take home to the kids.

    Just saw this info on Eater national but not on local Eater. Why do they bother to operate one if they don’t report local news.

  • where do I click “like” ???

  • Daniel, when does the book come out…can U say yet?

  • Mike, we are working of the “like”button. Food*Sparks, I believe the date for Daniel Vaughn’s book release is “late Spring 2013.”

    Inside Edition, why stop at local Eater. Why isn’t this front-page news on every website??? Why doesn’t Google devote its page to this important annoucement!!! WHAT an oversight.
