After seeing such overwhelmingly positive response to their kolaches, Bill Kerlin and his wife, Amelis, have decided to focus on the puffed and stuffed pastries. That means less barbecue for the masses. In a note on their Facebook page, the Kerlin BBQ owners said they will switch their focus to kolaches, producing more varieties and more product. They will serve the kolaches at their trailer at 1700 E. Cesar Chavez St. Wednesday-Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

More kolaches means less barbecue. For the next few months, Kerlin will only serve barbecue from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or until sold out) on Friday

They added:

“Large preorders & catering may be available other days, contact us at bill@kerlinbbq.com for details. Thank y’all so much for all your support during this transition.”

Kerlin ranked #7 on my top barbecue places in Austin last year. Read that full list here.
