Seems yesterday's Dickey's item is almost as popular as Wednesday's posting about Rebecca Aguilar's suspension -- well, OK, not quite. Regardless, for those so interested, news that Dickey's is franchising across the country -- not to mention across the pond -- has spawned a heated debate about where to find the best barbecue in town. And plenty of folks believe, well, it ain't Dickey's.
It is, of course, an oft-debated subject, but if you're interested, feel free to take a bite. Me, I dig Peggy Sue's when I can't make it to the Hill Country; Louie Mueller's when I can. But, of course, I am wrong. As always. --Robert Wilonsky
