Fall 2014 Texas BBQ Festivals

The arrival of fall in Texas doesn’t always account for the changing color in the leaves, or the brisk winds blowing on your face. In Texas, it’s still pretty warm, but the good thing is that barbecue can be eaten all year round.  The additional plus is there is a, ahem, beefy list of festivals during the second half of the year.  Here is a sampling of some coming up:



 September 14, 2014

In its fifth year, the TMBBQ fest brings highlights from the Texas Monthly top 50 BBQ list and showcases them along with beverages TMBBQ14and good ol’ BBQ conversation.  The event is held at The City Terrace at the Long Center, so there is also a great view of Lady Bird Lake if you need to take a break from the meat and go for a walk. Ticket information and more details can be found on the festival website here.

Gettin’ Sauced


October 19, 2014

Gettin’ Sauced returns again for a fifth time bringing even more BBQ samples and gettinsaucedfun for the family.  The neat thing about Gettin’ Sauced is it’s a free event, open to the public; but if you’d like to try our some amazing ‘cue and delicious sauces you can purchase a wristband.  A handful of Texas BBQ favorites will be attending like, Snow’s BBQ (Lexington, Tx), Louie Mueller Barbecue (Taylor, Tx), Opie’s Barbecue (Spicewood, Tx), and Hays County Bar-B-Que (San Marcos, Tx), just to name a few. More info on Gettin’ Sauced here.

I've lived in Texas all my life and can't express how much I love this state. I found that I was enjoying these amazing bbq spots and drinking fantastic Texas-made beer and wanted my buddies and I to be able to share them with our readers.
