For those who thought the barbecue fun was over with the Houston Rodeo cook off, here’s another festival for all the barbecue connoisseurs.

The second annual Houston Barbecue Festival is going on this weekend Saturday, Apr. 6th. Participants include Pizzitola’s, Gatlin’s, Killens, and Lenox to name a few. Out of town guests will also be bringing barbecue to Houston.

This event highlights Houston’s unique barbecue in comparison to other regions.

Now, this is not a competition or cook-off, it’s simply a festival where all barbecue lovers can learn more about its history and recognize the pit master’s talent

The party kicks off at 1 p.m. with live music and drinks and will go on until 5 p.m. at the Reliant Park.

There will not be any ticket sales at the door; tickets must be purchased in advance.

Rain or shine, prepare those fingers for some smokey juicy barbecue sauce soaked ribs.
