This trailer comes from two Texas BBQ legacies, one old and one relatively new. LeAnn Mueller, granddaughter of Louie Mueller and sister of John Mueller, owns it. After a disagreement with John resulted in his departure, she changed the name and recruited a new pit master, John Lewis. Lewis learned to smoke meats from none other than Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue.

La Barbecue resides in the same trailer in south Austin that first housed JMueller BBQ. Lewis smokes his brisket for 12 to 15 hours, and some customers have said it’s the best in town – better even than that of his former boss and mentor. They also offer a huge beef rib, sausage, pulled pork, and a wonderful chipotle coleslaw. Lewis unveiled a new, personally designed pit in early 2014, and with it, he is producing even better results.
