The list is out, with something special and ready to ship and eat from every state in the U.S. according to Thrillist.com.

Here in Texas, the winning food for gift giving is, you guessed it, barbecue... from Louie Mueller Barbecue.

Louie Mueller's is located in Taylor, Texas, a little shy of a six-hour drive from here in Lubbock. But no worries, since they do ship their seriously famous barbecue across the country. They're able to ship everything from their amazing Dino ribs, to smoked turkeys, pulled pork and more.

Louie Mueller Barbecue has a long history of barbecue. They opened their doors in 1949 and the reins have been handed down through three generations from father to son according to their website. 

They take pride in their attention to detail and "the highest quality food we can possibly put on your tray."

Yes, there are tons of great barbecue joints right here in Lubbock, but this still inspires me to take a road trip.
