"Wyatt McSpadden’s images of the world of Texas barbecue are so strong and evocative that they seem made of heat and smoke and flavor as much as of light and color. He is nothing less than a genius at summoning up the savory world of this most definitive of Lone Star food traditions." (Colman Andrews, restaurant columnist, Gourmet)
"It is incredibly refreshing to encounter a book of barbecue photographs that does not include neon signs of pigs, Confederate flags, or grinning hillbillies. . . . McSpadden restores some dignity to the field. . . .The tone of his images brings to mind the work of an earlier Texas photographer, Russell Lee, who also photographed Texas barbecue establishments in his work for the Farm Security Administration." (Robb Walsh, author of Legends of Texas Barbecue Cookbook)

Only negative...Snow's BBQ is nowhere to be found in here!! :-/
A little Kreutz heavy but im not complaining.
I found myself breathing in and expecting to smell the smoke and meat flavors these images captured.
The book itself is a piece of history and is filled with photos from McSpadden's twenty years documenting barbecue around Austin. For me, it was like a walk down memory lane as I've enjoyed many of the same spots for authentic barbecue, prepared by pit masters that have been smoking meat for decades.
Favorites like Kreuz, Smitty's, City Market, Cooper's, and more had me dreaming of my next road trip.
