Texas Monthly’s BBQ Festival Tickets On Sale Now


 

texas monthly bbq fest

Despite the Unholy Trinity of beefy Culinary Events forming in Texas on the weekend of November 1-3, you’re not going to want to miss the best smoked beef gathering in the universe — the Texas Monthly BBQ Festival in Austin. You and me and 3,000 of your best friends will gather again on the shores of Town Lake (yes, I still call it that) on Sunday, November 3, for a walk-around bbq fest that features generous helpings of the state’s best barbecue. Ribs, brisket, sausage, potato salad, pickles, pie, lore, lies and cooking tips are all yours for the asking– and the price of admission.

Tickets just went on sale, and most of them are already gone. I know it seems too early to be thinking about November, but the rest of these tickets will sell out faster than Jack Perkins cooks his Slow Bone briskets.

Never tried Aaron Franklin’s BBQ, or Snow’s or Pecan Lodge or John Mueller’s? Here’s your chance to try them all without standing in hours-long lines. More than half of Texas Monthly’s Top 50 BBQ joints in the state will be serving ‘cue from noon til 5 p.m..

Pat Sharpe and Aaron Franklin

The Hatch will be there. Pat Sharpe (Texas Monthly’s dining editor) will be there. Daniel “BBQ Snob” Vaughn will be there. Buy your ticket today so you can be there, too. (We can carpool back to Dallas in time to catch the second half of Chefs for Farmers on Sunday afternoon.)

GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.

 

UPDATE: The event is sold out.
