Well, here is where the real work lies. We are moving along in the edit and hope to have some pieces to show the world in the coming month. Thanks to everyone for sticking with us and keeping up. We will be updating much more often.
Have you met our editor?
Mike Washlesky – Editor
Mike, originally from Dallas, found his way to Austin when he was 19. It was soon there after he decided eating spaghetti every night was becoming a bore, and has been a culinary adventurer ever since. Mike has been a filmmaker full time since 1999 in various roles including Director, Cinematographer, and Editor.
Mike has a Mexican wife, a 5 year old daughter, a cat, a dog, and 3 grills. You can find him frequently tending the fire in his cabinet smoker and drinking beer when he’s not hunting wild game in West Texas.

Keep your eyes peeled for some clips coming soon.
Matthew Johnson, interviewer, producer, spokesperson, BBQ enthusiast, and stone carver extraordinaire will be speaking about FTLOM and all things BBQ at this weeks Nerd Nite which is tomorrow night at 501 Studios. Go check it out and see some of the first publicly aired footage of the film.
After a few months of planning, we are happy to announce a new addition to the group.
Mike Washlesky(these ribs are his creation) will round out our editing chops and help us drive this meat train home. Look for more updates on Mike, the edit and the project in general in the coming months.
Full smoke ahead!!
We’re still here! After a very successful first round of shooting we are in the thick of the editing process as well a shooting some additional material.
We will be back with more news in a bit.
This is going to be an awesome film.
So to everyone who said you have to go to Luling, we have done just that.
It was great. Joe, the pitmaster, was a gracious host and we enjoyed getting time to see him and his crew work their magic. The food was great, all of it, but the sausage stood out for a number of us, perfectly coarse without falling apart, and delicious.
Matthew enjoyed himself a tasty Big Red and then sat down to help some City Makret crew sort beans for a while. He got pretty good at it.
Check back here in a bit for more information on the film and our upcoming plans.

Join us this Saturday at 7:00pm (till 9) at Corona Cafe to open a showing of photographs taken by Matt Johnson and Jeff Jones. All your favorite BBQ Documentarians will be there and you can take in these photos of the people and places we visited while drinking the beer that goes best with BBQ, Lone Star.
Corona Cafe is located in the same center as the Nomad Bar (where we will most likely be going after) and is right off 35 around 51st and Cameron. Come out and hang with us before you go out for your Saturday night. Or just hang with us all night.
See you there!
Sunday’s Texas Monthly BBQ Festival was fantastic. Great to see old friends and meet new bbq masters. Special thank you to Cathy at Texas Monthly for helping us with the media passes and to everyone at Texas Monthly for throwing a great event.
We got a chance to meet Daniel from Full Custom Gospel BBQ as well a one of the donors to our Kickstarter page (which only has a couple days left so if you have a spare dollar or two…) Hung out with Gerald and crew from City Meat Market, John from Smitty’s, Kerry, Hershey, and Ms. Tootsie from Snows, Wayne from Muellers and a whole lot more. Met Sgt. Barbecue who started a bbq joint in Afghanistan. People came from all over. One guy had paid over $700 and flew in from Minnesota just to eat bbq.
We have set up a couple of follow up interviews with some folks from our first trip and are scheduling those soon. The film is coming together great.
