Austin is the place to be Sunday, as all the poobahs of good ‘cue turn out for Texas Monthly’s second annual BBQ Festival. Sunny skies, mild weather and a celebration of all that’s right about the red state and red meat (even though it’s in a city that’s normally all blue).
Twenty- three of the top 50 bbq joints in Texas (as anointed by TexMo’s senior editor, Pat Sharpe) will be serving ribs, brisket and sausages to a few thousand ticket holders. Snow’s BBQ will be there. Franklin Barbecue will be there. We’ll be there, too, camera in one hand, napkins in another, and — if we do it right — sauce dripping down both.
See you in ATX.
