In what they call a "long overdue" move, Texas Monthly magazine has hired its first barbecue editor.

The lucky @#$%! is named Daniel Vaughn, and he's at least qualified for the gig -- whatever the criteria might be for a barbecue editor. He's got a book coming out about TX BBQ, The Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey Through Texas Barbecue, and he's been tweeting and blogging about the 'q for some time.

A recent feature described a week on his beat: "Mr. Vaughn had eaten barbecue for lunch and planned to eat barbecue for lunch the following day; he also planned to spend part of the weekend at the inaugural Houston Barbecue Festival."

Vaughn's exploits will debut in the June issue of Texas Monthly, announcing a new list of the top 50 barbecue joints in Texas.

Suddenly you're craving finger-licking flesh. Chicago has its share of smoky goodness.
