Texas is on fire.
Tens of thousands of acres have been immolated by hundreds of wildfires sweeping across the state.
Thousands of homes have been lost. Incinerated with little left save for the occasional stone chimney or cement planter.
Texas needs major help and we need it right now. Black’s Barbecue to the rescue.
Lockhart’s finest smoked meat house is hosting a benefit on Wednesday, September 14th 2011 with 100% of the money raised at the door going to wildfire victims.
Saint Arnolds Brewing from over in Houston is bringing some ice cold Oktoberfest beer to wash the brisket and sausage down with too.
A company called Honest Tea will be there with ice cold beverages as well.
We like that the good Texans running Blacks down in Lockhart are using fire to fight fire. The pits will be stoked and blazing, the meats will be perfectly cooked and the harnessed fires in Black’s pits will be pulling in big money in this noble effort.
Fire fighting fire.
