The menu at the South Austin trailer JNL Barbecue is pretty straightforward - except for the al pastor pork ribs. And it’s clear that they’re Franklin Barbecue alum, as the brisket was our favorite thing here. We really liked the pulled pork, too, especially with the chicharrones mixed in. Find them at the coffeeshop/bar Buzz Mill off East Riverside.
