This is what Phaedra Cook is up to, since she left the Press abruptly last year.
I found it via a tweet on Alison Cook’s feed about house-made sausages at Houston BBQ joints. I used to be quite a sausage hound but kinda burned out on it. Anyway, a good article. The author has a review of the Pit Room and a run down of his top 7 barbecue joints in other articles on the site.
