LeAnn Mueller, la Barbecue’s founder, hails from two generations of Texas barbecue kings. (Her grandfather, Louie Mueller, founded the barbecue joint in Taylor that bears his name.) Her father, Bobby Mueller, known as one of the greatest pit-masters of all time, was an OG barbecue great, winning a James Beard Award in 2006, a first for Texas barbecue. The la Barbecue recipes celebrate Bobby’s Central Texas BBQ tradition by serving up juicy brisket smoked low ‘n slow for over 14 hours. This world-class brisket with a classic black “bark”, pink smoke ring and tender, mouth-watering barbecue is as good as good gets. Barbecue lovers travel from all points to enjoy this delicious smoked meat. Luckily you’re just a few clicks away from experiencing a piece of Texas barbecue heaven for yourself.

About The Food

la Barbecue’s acclaimed Central Texas brisket celebrates founder, LeAnn Mueller’s tradition and pedigree, but with her own twists that make it uniquely hers. The tender, flavorful meat has a crispy, smoky bark and each bite melts in your mouth. It is cooked in the traditional low and slow style with post oak for 14 to 16 hours with a generous rub of salt, pepper, and secret seasoning. The beef is sourced from a local ranch, where the cattle are grass fed and hormone free. The ethereal taste of quality beef and LeAnn’s Texas barbecue heritage come through loud and clear in these mouth-watering smoked meats.

Meet The Owner

LeAnn and her wife, Ali, run la Barbecue in East Austin. The couple splits their time between the Live Music Capital of the world and L.A. She opened la Barbeque’s doors in 2012 and the constant line to order and experience their Central Texas barbecue is a testament to its quality and taste. A third-generation in a line of BBQ greats, LeAnn is proud to keep la Barbecue female-owned and operated. In the sausage fest of the barbecue industry, she’s glad the future is female.
