Here again is another amazing testimonial about Ladybird's Bbq! #ROTRALLY2018 #DEMMERICKJOHNSON #LADYBIRDSAUSTINKITCHEN

Hello everyone. We finally finished the trailer re-design this past Friday. During our last inspection this Tuesday EVERYTHING PASSED...except our fridge. On Tuesday it took a vacation (it was empty..and probably went to Tulum), and never returned. DANG! We have our last inspection this week, AND WE HAVE A BRAND NEW EVEREST FRIDGE, Thanks to Andy and the gang at #RestaurantDepot.The many, many challenges of my small minority owned startup in one of the most challenging of businesses, has been made been lighter by such helpful souls.

COMING UP: Over the next few weeks, we will send out Indiegogo awards, painstakingly find a new home for our trailer (the 1606 location did not work for us for many reasons) Please...please do not be disappointed. We understand that many of you (50k) are anticipating trying our bbq! You said so when you liked and shared our Ruby's Project! Soon we will load our online catering menu, connect with all online delivery services, and Cook some great Bbq! #PatMares would want us to do so! A special thanks goes out to #SmokeyDenmark, #JustineGilcrease, the #TexasMasonryCouncil, #ButlerBrickCompany, and all of you that are willing to try us one time. Stay Tuned!

This was a picture before we finished the all black look...Please be on the lookout for some new & sexy branding! A Gigantic Thanks of course to the talented Masterminds of! I wish I could live inside those brains for just a few moments!


My new O.G. If you don't who, you may be out the game! Hahhahahahaha! Hahahaha!

I absolutely love this quote from true(x)! It reminds me that I also have to stay grounded, and make sure that my ideas connect deeply with others! #true(x) #DEMMERICKJOHNSON

...a slowly reducing corn milk can be used for a great number of things....The entire kitchen smells of corn! #LongLivesLadybirds #LadybirdsPizza #DemmerickJohnson

When Kitchen OCD comes in handy...Garage DONE!

Day 18 of the Sourdough Starter. Robust bubbles! Trying to feed the starter 3 times a day for 5 days, then reduce the schedule...and hopefully that will be the deal for the next 100 years...or until someone else takes over the task!

Day #15 of Sourdough starter! Temperature hovering between 72 and 73 degrees. The aroma was pleasant with fruity notes...this was quite on to the starter's 3 times per day for the next 5 days feeding schedule in an attempt to strengthen it! Starter you must be loved! #DemmerickJohnson #LadybirdsAustinKitchen #RightNow #SourdoughBread #AustinIsMyDreamJob #NeverStopLearning #SchoolofHardKnox

Lady's and Gentlemen, may I again introduce you to the Wonderful Jacob Villarreal of Sysco Corporation (Austin)!
