On Assignment, Texas Hill Country - 4.9.2011

Philadelphia Magazine asked me to document the culinary journey of Michael Solomonov, Steve Cook and Erin O’Shea (and The Percy Street Restaurant team) as they tasted BBQ throughout the Hill Country, prior to opening their new spot in Philadelphia. The experience included every kind of meat, smoked every different way, roughly five times a day with Shiner Bock beer. We didn’t see a vegetable for days.

Philadelphia Magazine rarely runs photo essays but they published the story in three double truck spreads for the November issue. Read Food Editor Ashley Primis’ account of the journey HERE and see Chandler Kauffman’s video of the journey below.
