At Burnet High School, students cook in a state-of-art kitchen, worth a quarter of a million dollars, to create what some would consider the holy grail of Texas grilling. They’re the Under-dawgs, a high school varsity barbecue team that won the regional championship last year. Maria Villareal reports.
