    You know, Hilah, you just get better and better. When I watch the Food Network or Cooking Channel, a kind of dreary sameness permeates the airwaves. What you do with the ordinary fare we love to eat is so much better as an amateur production than anything I’m watching. You relate to people where they are at, and that is the main reason we love your videos.

    Oh, and I forgot to add: With this video the sound quality has improved, the background music really seasons the video well, and the editing is really professional. This is inspiring because it means that anyone with knowledge can link up with someone else with knowledge and produce an A-1 quality film without the interference of studios, honchos and agencies all wanting their pound of flesh.

      Thank you thank you thank you!!! That is great to hear because we really want to do more videos like this one in the future, but it’s hard to tell what other people think of them after you’ve spent 12 hours editing and your brain is fried and everything and nothing seems like a good idea all at the same time!

    I second that- great vid and well done!

    I ate (takeout from) Louie Miller’s for the first time earlier this year. It was fan-bleeping-tastic.. I had never ever seen ribs like their Dino ribs! Melt in your mouth and 1 rib feeds two people for real! Be warned, Louie Miller’s is on the pricey side, but then, you don’t have to stand in front of a pit for 24 hours so I’ma say it’s worth it. I’m pretty sure my eyes did roll back in my head after I attempted to eat a whole rib. Meaty juicy smoky goodness ftw.

      Thank you, Rachael! Aren’t those ribs enormous?! We could not believe it. We shared that whole 3-meat plate you saw at the end of the video and STILL brought home meat! Luscious is the only word for those beef ribs.

    This *is* a great video. The cameraman could totally make movies! ; )

    Just tried watching the video on brisket and it says that it is private. Can you make it public again or give me sign-in credentials?

    • Hilah on October 8, 2014 at 6:30 pm

      It’s fixed. I have no idea what happened. The video was public on YT so maybe I had the wrong one linked or something.

    My farming family is from Granger, 11 miles from Taylor and although I don’t live there we visit Mueller’s during dove hunting season. The meat is awesome but you may not have picked up on an important part of the meal and that is a very weak and mild sauce. Mueller does not want to cover up the taste of true slow cooked BBQ pork or beef.

      Hey Scott!
      Yeah, Wayne told me they didn’t even introduce bbq sauce until several years ago and that was just to appease the non-Texans who expect to have bbq sauce 😉
