  • Edge Craft to bring Central Texas BBQ to the core

    After serving as pitmaster for the short-lived but highly regarded Maples, Zach Edge learned a great deal.

    That experience has led to the creation of a Central Texas barbecue restaurant of his own. Edge Craft will open Friday 7/30 in the renovated complex alongside Dead People's Stuff.

    The new restaurant at 1900 Linwood will be open for business Friday, Saturday and Sunday to start, opening its door at 11 a.m. and staying open until sell-out with the likelihood of adding more days with time.

    All the meats are cooked by Edge himself in the adjacent custom smokehouse and sliced to order by the man himself.

    Meats include prime brisket, pork spare ribs, house sausage made from the brisket trimmings, turkey and pulled pork.

    The sides are given the same kind of attention with a grown-up version of mac & cheese, collard greens with bacon, baked beans, fried okra, coleslaw, potato salad and smoked elote with in-house-made crema.

    For now, soda and beer will be served in cans. Beer will largely be domestic and inexpensive, with some local craft offerings as well.

    There is a stand-alone bar near the rear of the renovated industrial space which will be opened down the line.

    In addition to Dead People's Stuff, a barber and Edge Craft, the Linwood development will be adding Cross Timbers Brewing Company with a large taproom and covered patio at the east end. Cross Timbers should open in a couple of months.
