The legendary Driftwood pitmasters reveal their smoking secrets with a cookbook chronicling 130yrs of family tradition, as expressed in their recipes for everything from brisket to chicken fried steak to blueberry muffins, probably the only thing in the book that shouldn't be smothered in sauce.
In many ways, BookPeople is Austin's premier independent bookstore. It opened its doors way back in 1970 and it still manages a massive space with a huge selection of titles that feels incredibly welcoming. Throughout their two floors, you'll find perhaps the largest selection of books on this list, an in-house coffee shop, and shelves full of colorful book recommendation cards written by their staff members. The place has been known to get many big-name authors to stop by, so visit the website to see their upcoming book signings and other events.
