Daniel Vaughn (or as many know him "The BBQ Snob") has been on a very long journey to get to where he is at today. We are not talking about the 10,343 miles, 35 days or 135 barbecue joints conquered to be able to write his book. We are talking about the journey taken while writing his blog "Full Custom Gospel BBQ" as a full time architect. His experiences and credibility allowed him the opportunity to be published as the first book under Anthony Bourdain's publishing line. This opened the door to Daniel Vaughn being hired by Texas Monthly Magazine to serve as the world's first full time Barbecue Editor.
Daniel can be quite brutal with his reviews of barbecue joints, but it comes from his experience and sound understanding of what it takes to create the art of barbecue. This is how he has developed the reputation as the "BBQ Snob".
