Beginning in the 80s, we canvassed the Lone Star state to plumb her of one of her most precious resources: smoked meat competitions. There is nothing on earth more enjoyable than hanging out with a pack of wiry pit bosses and talking all day long about smoked meat variables.
And of course drinking respectable amounts of Lone Star beer while doing so.
We just got word that the Houston Barbecue Festival is returning for the 5th year to NRG Park (home of the Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.) Dozens of the best pit bosses in the Great State will be on hand serving tons (yes, tons) of pit smoked meats. If you’re a barbecue lover get your tickets early as the event always sells out.
Hope to see y’all there.

Pre-sale’s a little cheaper so get on it.
