If you’re jonesing for some of the best barbecue in Austin this week, your choices will be slightly limited. Two of the top 10 barbecue spots in Austin are closed for a few days. Micklethwait Craft Meats (which landed at #5 on our list last week) will be closed until March 27, as they recover from South by Southwest and service the folks out at the World Golf Championships at Austin Country Club (get the chicken salad), and Kerlin BBQ (which nabbed the #7 spot) is closed until Friday.
