Woodlands Barbecue Festival
The Woodlands Barbecue Festival is bringing back the intoxicating scent of smoked meats to Town Green Park on Oct. 7.
Good barbecue is hard to come by, festival co-founder Stuart Lapp said.
Any fast food chain can slap pulled pork on a bun and call it a day, he explained, but true barbecue — made with the proper seasoning, attentive turning of meats and patient tending to the fire — is both an art and a craft.
Although it is one of the smaller festivals of Houston’s barbecue “season,” The Woodlands iteration is drawing 16 of the regions best-known barbecue joints — most of which are local mom-and-pop shops.
Tickets are still available for The Woodlands BBQ festival at www.thewoodlandsbbq.com. General admission is $50 and VIP tickets — which includes early admission, two drink tickets, a T-shirt and a tote bag — are $100.
When: 1-4 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 7
Where: Town Green Park, The Woodlands
