Johnny Mueller Back AGAIN!


John Mueller Meat Co

Continuing the revered institution of Texas meat markets, John Mueller Meat Co is bringing the traditional butcher and smokehouse back to Austin, Tx.

John Mueller Meat Co will be opening up shop on February 20th on the East Side, sharing a lot with Kellee’s Place at 2500 E. 6th St. Boasting a trailer setup, picnic tables and Texas music streaming from the speakers, customers will also be able to purchase beer from Kellee’s and are welcome to eat their meals inside.

Traditional smoked meats of brisket, beef ribs, sausage, pork ribs, pork shoulder and turkey will be available, as well as classic sides such as baked squash, potato salad and pinto beans. In addition to meals, John Mueller Meat Co will also serve as a butcher shop and artisan grocery, selling handcrafted sausages, seasoned meats, homemade relishes and barbecue sauces.

JMMC takes it’s name from talented meat master John Mueller, a legend amongst the barbecue circuit and a third generation Texan meat merchant. Though, don’t dare call him a pit boss: “I’m not a pit boss. I’m not a pit master. I’m a cook, I cook for a living” says Mueller.

Eating at John Mueller Meat Co will be reminiscent of a great cookout at your buddy’s house; says Mueller: “We’re gonna offer you the biggest backyard BBQ in Austin. Y’all c’mon down and stay a while”. The location is mere minutes from the Downtown area, and was selected for it’s nostalgic connection to Mueller; “I first came to Austin and set up on the East Side. It just made sense to go back”.

Operating hours for John Mueller Meat Co will be Tuesday thru Saturday, from 10.30am until sold out. With large capacity pits, they hope to ensure the meat is available for purchase as long as possible.

Though the location and experience is new, meat fans can still expect to encounter Mueller’s trademark crotchety brand of “customer service”, and of course, he’ll still be handing out free beers to those waiting in long lines. Some things never change.

My name is Christy and I was born, raised, and still live in Austin, TX. I love to travel. I have been all over the US, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, etc. My second favorite place in the world is Negril, Jamaica where I have been 10 times and counting. I am a trained pastry chef but I am not currently working in "the industry" right now. I became a pastry chef in part to complement the fabulous dinners conjured up by my best friends Ethan and Michelle, who hopefully will be contributing to this blog as well. We went through a 2 year period of "Tuesday Night" dinner parties which were a smorgasbord of bloody meat and red, red wine. Friendships and laughter. The men did all the cooking while the women got tipsy, as all dinner parties should be. If I wanted to participate with food, I had to bring something and I became Dessert Girl. Eventually I attended the Le Cordon Bleu program at the Texas Culinary Academy and received a certificate in Pastry and Baking. I have had several baking jobs but found it hard to make ends meet, so I earn my living elsewhere for now. I have had the pleasure of working with several celebrity chefs including Rebecca Rather, Bronwen Weber, and David Lebovitz. I have also cultivated some amazing friends and resources in the Central Texas area and would like to share my knowledge with all who care to join me. My most recent honor was winning Best Sweet at the Bacon Takedown during SXSW 2011. As the culinary icon Ms. Childs' says, "Bon Appetit!" ***CONTACT ME at or twitter @christy111luv***
