"Houston barbecue continues to grow and evolve," says J.C. Reid, festival director and co-founder. "Still, we are of the belief that bigger is not always better. With that in mind, we've slowly added new barbecue joints over the years, and this year's lineup is truly a snapshot of the great things happening in Houston barbecue."
The much talked about BBQ festival will be held at the NRG Park, Green Lot on Sunday, May 22nd (1-5pm). Some restaurants include: The Brisket House, Blake's BBQ, The Brisket House, Cork Screw BBQ, Gatlin's BBQ, Brook's Place, Killen's BBQ, Ray's BBQ Shack, Lenox Bar-B-Q, The Wooden Spoke, Pizzitola's Bar-B-Cue etc. There are also some new participants this year, such as, Tejas Chocolate Craftory, Killen's Barbecue, Jackson Street BBQ, Harlem Road Texas BBQ and BBQ Godfather.
