First Meat Up a success for Daytripper fans and KLRU supporters!

On October 1, around 90 donors who donated $150 during the August pledge drive climbed aboard charter buses for the inaugural KLRU/Daytripper Meat Up – a tour of barbecue restaurants featured on Chet Garner’s The Daytripper.  Chet joined the group of super fans for a tasting tour of iconic Texas barbecue joints: Black’s, Luling City Market, and Smitty’s.  Each restaurant had something special to offer: a tour of the pit at Blacks, an extra rib at Luling City Market, and dollar scoops of Blue Bell at Smitty’s.
