Homegrown barbecue restaurant chain founded 38 years ago today
DAILY Food  June 14, 2013, by Virginia B. Wood
"...The untimely deaths of all three Goss brothers and Bruce Walcutt have left Norton and Miller as the two men carrying the torch, or perhaps gargantuan smoked beef rib would be a more appropriate image in their case, into the future. One of the ways "Skeeter" Miller is doing that is with a guest appearance on a segment of Destination America's BBQ Pitmasters called "Everything is Beefier in Texas" this weekend..."

Tickle the Ribs
The first annual 'Austin Chronicle' Invitational BBQ Beef Rib Smackdown
Food Story  January 17, 2014, by Mick Vann
"...Texas is known for its beef, and although smoked brisket has escaped the state's borders, beef ribs are very seldom seen in any other state's smokers, except in barbecue restaurants that emulate Texas barbecue. Within the state, the skinnier beef back rib has been served for decades, but the short rib rarely made an appearance on Central Texas barbecue menus except for a select few, such as Taylor's Louie Mueller BBQ in 1946 (they switched cuts in the Nineties) and Black's BBQ in Lockhart in 2007..."

Music Column  March 15, 2002, by Ken Lieck
"...The burning question, with the recent economic conditions adding to the troubles of Austin's already endangered live music venues, is how they've been doing during SXSW, and the general answer so far has been a cautiously optimistic "pretty well." Over County Line BBQ and the strains of "What Would Willie Do?" by Bruce Robison at the Thursday afternoon Texas Music magazine party, Antone's staffers told me that things have been good so far, with a typically smaller crowd on Wednesday. Venues off the beaten track and with lesser-known local acts seemed to be doing awfully well that first night, as Opal Divine's Freehouse stayed nearly full through most of the Wednesday sets by Austin rockers Sexy Finger Champs, Stinky del Negro and the like..."
