The Story of Wanderlust

Craft BBQ & Coffee Pop-up in Austin, TX

Most folks in the BBQ world don’t know my name – or at least not my birth name. It is more likely they know me by my Instagram screen name –@nosides_nosauce. That is because I am a barbecue photographer. I take and share mouthwatering pics of barbecue across Texas and beyond.

People also don’t know that I love to cook and I hear I am pretty good at it (humble brag). I have been cooking for as long as I can remember and grilling and smoking meats in my backyard as a hobby for a minute. I love sharing the food I make. I get a lot of joy out of seeing people enjoy my food.

Over the last few years of being a food photographer, I started hearing the call to share my food on a larger scale. I spent a lot of time in BBQ joints and pitrooms across Texas. I talked to lots of pitmasters. Over time, the picture came into focus and the concept for Wanderlust Craft BBQ & Coffee was born. I had no choice but to follow my gut and heed the call.

I have no idea where this road will take me, but I plan to enjoy the ride and I invite all of you to come along with me. Adventure awaits!!! -Ted
