Even Super Storm 2011 couldn't stop the BBQ greatness of the Super Bowl XLV Media Party last night at the House of Blues.
Eight of the planned ten pitmasters from across Texas made it through the ice and snow to the HOB. The teams were Snow's BBQ of Lexington, Louie Mueller Barbecue of Taylor, Franklin Barbecue of Austin, Black's BBQ of Lockhart, Blue Ribbon BBQ (Mikeska family) of Austin, Mills County BBQ Company of Goldwaite, Stanley's Famous Pit BBQ of Tyler, Schoepf's Old Time Pit BBQ of Belton and Earl Campbell's Sausage. Only the teams from Cooper's Old Time BBQ and Meyer's Elgin Smokehouse were unable to make it through the ice storm.
Thanks to Drew Thornley and Man Up Texas BBQ for joining with the Super Bowl XLV Host Committee to put together a great lineup featuring the best of Texas cue.
Here are some party photos shot by Posse member Gary Barber of the historic gathering. The weather might have sucked but the BBQ was amazing!
