John died this Thursday after a long illness.
Daniel Vaughn, the Barbecue editor for the Texas Monthly magazine confirmed the news through his Twitter. He wrote, “LeAnn Mueller asked me to share the sad news that her brother and barbecue legend John Mueller has passed away.
When he was inquired by the cause of death, he decided to reply in a ‘John’ way. He said, “For those curious about the cause of death…John would tell you to mind your own damn business, but he had long-term health issues.
He was in the hospital for weeks earlier this year. He pulled through and got well enough to work again.”
MORE TRIBUTES TO JOHN
Good memory: waiting in line one morning at John Mueller Meat Company, and there are these 2 guys with large lattes from Starbucks. John approaches the line, takes the lattes right out of their hands and replaces them with beers. Then tosses both lattes in the big trash can!

I'm not married or have kids or have experienced any of that other stuff that people usually fall back on when they say "it was the best day of my life". So when I say eating a beef rib from John Mueller's pit was the best day of my life, there is no hyperbole in that statement. https://t.co/TyaLrQxK3f
