John Mueller is "OUT"

Thought I'd share this with all the Austin folks. Just came across this article, apparently the sister (who actually owns it) has fired John and hired on Franklin's former pitmaster John Lewis. Apparently his "comeback" wasn't much of a comeback. Thought you guys might be interested.

    There needs to be a 'Q soap opera... "As the spit turns" or something like that.

    If I had a gob of $$, I'd set up a home for wayward pit-masters here in the cold and dreary northland. J. Mueller would probably curse his life in exile, but it would save me a 1000+ mi. trip for some good beef ribs.
  • Great catch Grif. Not surprising at all. Last time I went down there, he had a huge poster on the side of the trailer with a disgruntled customer's negative review. He just could not let it go. It was up for weeks and he would talk to every single person in line about what a tool the guy was. it was half funny/half weird. He is legendary for his issues but the dude can cook. makes the move of John Lewis from Franklin make a lot more sense now. image

    Man, I totally get it. We had a restaurant for 2 years and it was brutal. You just wanted to choke everyone................but we had a wine/beer store too so we just drank a lot

    I had a job as a waiter for exactly two days one summer. I have never wanted to choke slam that many people in my life (that's a lot, I love to choke slam people). I quit and went to stay with a girl at her moms condo on the beach. It was totally the right decision.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    That's one reason I'm always polite to the wait staff.  Don't want to get choke slammed, and I especially don't want a passive aggressive employee to "garnish" my meal with a hock o luggie (or worse).  That is, unless I'm treated rudely without cause, then I turn into a royal ****.

  • I just saw this on the another "family friendly" forum:


    "@louiemuellerbbq just tweeted, "Brother John is fired, stealing from family again it seems.If you've been conned by John Mueller, please contact Wayne"

    Wow- talk about airing your dirty laundry! Bet Thanksgiving at the Mueller house is going to be a bit frosty this year. They all seem a little unstable to me. And when Centex is calling your family out for instability, your life has taken a hideous detour.
