Third-generation pitmaster Adrian Davila of Davila’s BBQ in Seguin, Texas makes his way north to our studios to talk all about barbecue. He fills us in on the history of Texas barbecue as well as his own family’s incredible 60-year run as a powerhouse in the world of ‘cue. (For those who want to try Davila’s but can’t make it to south Texas, the company ships nationwide.) But first, associate editor George Embiricos dishes on the most exciting restaurants in New York’s West Village neighborhood. We close with an ode to the most perfect bite written by senior editor Jess Kapadia and performed by producer Katie Guhl.
