Searching For The Best BBQ On Labor Day And Beyond07:44

This article is more than 6 years old.

On Labor Day, people around the country are gathering around the grill to say goodbye to summer. To mark the occasion, we revisit a conversation Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson had with Daniel Vaughn in July 2013.

Vaughn is the barbecue editor at Texas Monthly, and his book, “The Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey Through Texas Barbecue,” boldly claims the Lonestar State is home to the best barbecue in the world. What about other states? Don't worry. We ask him about that too.


  • Daniel Vaughn, Texas Monthly barbecue editor and author of “The Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey Through Texas Barbecue.” He tweets @BBQsnob.
