We know that aficionados of brisket will rhapsodize about the “bark,” sure – but isn’t this a bit much?
This is about as no-lose as a situation gets, we reckon, because only strict vegetarians (or people bereft of tastebuds) don’t love pigging out on the slow-cooked goodness that la Barbecue has to offer … and only a coldhearted fiend wouldn’t want to support a local animal shelter if they can. So here’s your chance to do both at once.
Starting today (and running through July 4), Austin barbecue fans and animal lovers can place their orders directly at la Barbecue, and for each order, Merrick will make a $10 donation to Austin Pets Alive – up to 10 grand, as part of the national BBQ 4 Good initiative. Bonus: Pet parents will also get a special “doggy bag” for their pups at home – featuring Merrick’s new slow-cooked BBQ recipes for dogs.
That’s right – dogs love BBQ too.
But you knew that, right? And now you know that you can get some of that la Barbecue ‘cue for you, and some Merrick ‘cue for ol’ Fido, and support Austin Pets Alive!, right here until July 4th.
