Vegas Foodie: This tender and moist BBQ brisket sandwich from Big Ern’s in downtown Las Vegas is the real deal. And its Container Park location is super cool. Recommended!!
Pulled pork, okra, and cornbread from Baby Blues B.B.Q. Mmmm.
Thick hand cut brisket. Very lightly sauced. This sandwich is no joke. (at Red House BBQ)

#LAFoodiePodcast: Lukshon, LA Times’ Dominic Riley, Reddit gift exchange
This week on the L.A. Foodie podcast, Drew and Ben review the new restaurant from the guys who brought you Father’s Office, the Asian-fusion spot Lukshon, put stuff in LA Times’ food writer Dominic Riley's mouth, talk about weekend travel adventures to Santa Maria and Kansas City, and discuss the package they received from some random dude on Reddit.
Is the small-plates trend worth it? Will Dominic correctly guess what’s in his mouth? What kind of BBQ reigns supreme? (I vote for Texas, but I don’t think I get a say.) Listen and find out.
