Austin Food Truck

  • 11 days ago
Pitmaster Damien Brockway is changing the taste of typical Central Texas barbecue. At the Distant Relatives food truck in Austin, he’s infusing spices found throughout the African diaspora. On the menu, you’ll see the Texas trinity of brisket, ribs, and sausage, seasoned with African bird’s-eye chile, allspice, pimiento, and several Caribbean peppers. Even the sides — roasted peanuts, black-eyed peas, and jumpled rice — are tied to African American family recipes.
