It's like a dream BBQ tour. Imagine hitting 10 of the best barbecue joints in Texas.....all in one night.
Posse lead writer Gary Jacobson got the scoop this morning about a gathering in Dallas next week of legendary pitmasters. Snow's BBQ owner Kerry Bexley called to give Gary a heads up on the story.
Pitmasters from 10 top TexasBBQ joints will gather in the parking lot of the House of Blues next Tuesday to cook for the 2011 NFL Super Bowl XLV Media Party, which is held that evening at the HOB. You have to be a Super Bowl credentialed member of the media to attend and the NFL has credentialed over 5,500 journalists to cover the big game at Cowboys Stadium. What a great way to show the national and international media what Texas is all about.
Kerry and Snow's will be cooking with the team from Louie Mueller Barbecue on Mueller's portable smoker, which they will drive up from Taylor. In addition to Snow's and Louie Mueller, Kerry says they will be joined by Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue, Black's BBQ from Lockhart, Blue Ribbon BBQ (Mikeska family) from Austin, Cooper's Old Time BBQ from Fort Worth, Meyer's Elgin Smokehouse, Mills County BBQ Company in Goldwaite, Stanley's Famous Pit BBQ in Tyler, Schoepf's Old Time Pit BBQ in Belton and Earl Campbell's Sausage.
Several Texas BBQ Posse members will be covering the Super Bowl for The Dallas Morning News. We'll be sharing stories and photos from the event and any other BBQ-related news from the Super Bowl.
