Texas thief stole nearly $3,000 worth of brisket

The manager of a BBQ restaurant in Texas says a thief stole nearly $3,000 worth of brisket on the morning of August 4.

According to FOX 7, Alison Clem, the executive director of La Barbecue in Austin, Texas, said 20 pieces of brisket were stolen by someone who jumped a fence and ran toward the smoker around 4 a.m.

Clem said she believes the thief planned the theft.

“We kind of speculate that he was watching. You know, maybe someone who used to cook for us. Since we’ve been here we haven’t had any turnover in our house so it wouldn’t be current. Well, that’s also kind of strange that he knew it.” said Klem.

She said the incident was caught on camera and lasted about 15 minutes.

“One of my strongest guys back there can barely lift 10 chest pieces in a box, and [the thief] raised her over his head. So I really just think it was planned,” Klem said.

The cost of the meat, according to Clem, is $3,000 when seasoning and labor are factored in, she said.

Clem also said that while this is the seventh or eighth time the restaurant has been broken into, it is the first time meat has been stolen.

“I can only speculate that he might work for a food truck or a restaurant. I don’t know, even throw a party. I have no idea,” Clem said.
