The James Beard award-winning BBQ legends at Taylor, TX's Louie Mueller recently posted a Craigslist Missed Connection for a smoking-hot piece of meat. Just kidding. It was a job ad, to recruit a new BBQ pit apprentice to join their dynasty. Be warned: the work is totally (baby) back-breaking -- in fact, over the past three years, only one of six apprentices actually graduated. Whether you're interested in the gig, or just want to see how some of the best meat in the world is made, take a look at this photo exploration of a day in the life of the lowest rung on the Mueller totem pole. Whether or not you emerge inspired to take on new employment, you will emerge goddamn hungry.
