On Assignment, Texas Hill Country

© Michael T Regan Photography 2009

While driving across the country en route to Los Angeles, I stopped in Texas for a three day shoot with friend and filmmaker Chandler Kauffman. Philadelphia Magazine asked me to document the culinary journey of Michael Solomonov, Steve Cook and Erin O'Shea (and The Percy Street Restaurant team) as they tasted BBQ throughout the Hill Country, prior to opening their new spot in Philadelphia. The experience included every kind of meat, smoked every different way, roughly five times a day with Shiner Bock beer. We didn't see a vegetable for three days.

Philadelphia Magazine rarely runs photo essays but they published the story in three double truck spreads for the November issue. Click on the well designed spreads below to see enlarged versions. Read Food Editor Ashley Primis' account of the journey HERE.

Check out Chandler's documentary below shot with a mix of HD Video and Super 8mm film.
