“We will rebuild.”

I know some of you get a trifle miffed when I venture off topic, but I can’t help but mention the major fire that took place yesterday morning at Franklin’s Barbecue, an Austin mecca I finally was able to visit last year.

This is my favorite part of the aftermath.

Once the fire was out, Franklin offered briskets to the firefighters. There were 110 finished ones sitting in the warmers unharmed, but without any utilities in the building, Franklin couldn’t exactly serve them. The firefighters said they weren’t allowed to accept them, but I wouldn’t blame any of Austin’s finest if they were having brisket for dinner.

In fact, if they didn’t, they’s crazy.

    Nearby neighbor Nickel City is donating $2 from every Old Fashioned sold at the bar this weekend to help pay Franklin Barbecue’s staff.

    It’s flooding down in Texas and all of the telephone lines are down.

    This and all the rain here has made for a bummer of a weekend. To say nothing of the disaster forming in Houston. But at least the Dawgs are playing soon…

    I’m a Guy Clarke fan. Got a link to one of his songs, “South Coast of Texas”? With regard to those keeping their heads above water down there? Feel for those folks and happy to be a hillbilly today

    With a few of your listeners/readers having issues/panty’s in a wad concerning the bbq about to be served on saturdays at our beloved Sanford Stadium, the BBQ topic ,while unfortunate is a welcomed change of pace. In the future could you add the scratch and sniff feature to your articles.
