Frankfurter fanatics and Uncle Herky devotees head on over to Luscher’s Red Hots (2653 Commerce) as Chef/Owner Brian C. Luscher serves-up his final Post Oak Red Hots at the Deep Ellum eatery through Tuesday, December 13.  This is the last chance to eat at Luscher’s which will close December 14.
“Everyone is invited to come bid Luscher’s adieu with a final Uncle Herky and a beer,” says Chef Brian.  “I am so proud of all we accomplished with Luscher’s.  The food and our team are on point and we are truly honored for all of the accolades and attention garnered during our two-year run. We gave it everything we’ve got.”
Luscher will continue to focus and grow Post Oak Red Hots LLC., which provides the all-natural sausages to area restaurants and retail locations as well as oversee operations at The Grape.

Meat Fight Rescue

ronby Steven Doyle

Meat Fight is upon us, and it would seem every decent barbecue  Generalísimo will be either working or judging the event. You know you didn’t get a ticket, we didn’t either. It is a fantastic event that started as a small backyard brouhaha to raise a few bucks for National MS Society by the Observer James Beard award winning writer and former Cheap Bastard, Alice Laussade. Last year the event came out of the closet and was opened to the public with rave reviews, including one from craveDFW.

My ticket last year fell onto my lap after a friend could not make the event. I was driving back into town from the Terlingua Chili Cookoff when the offer was made. I floored the gas pedal and made it back in time for the closing credits of the event but was still able to sample a few slices of brisket and a chunk of sausage made by Brian Luscher. I ate the flesh and it was good.

For those who were not fortunate enough to secure a ticket during the three minutes they were for sale, we have a few meat suggestions of our own. Laussade mentioned a few weeks back that if this event was as successful as she hopes (and it is already) that next year will be much larger and more inclusive.  Peruse our meat laden list below, and if you use any of the following ideas to pass the time your luckier friends are at Meat Fight, consider making a donation to the National MS Society. Karma will assist you next year.    Continue reading
