Event description

Description

Taste the future of Houston Barbecue

The Houston Barbecue Festival and Saint Arnold Brewing Company announce the 5th annual Houston BBQ Throwdown! featuring 14 of Houston's best barbecue restaurants competing to create the next great barbecue dish that represents Houston-style barbecue.

Each ticket includes samples from each of the barbecue competition entries as well as Saint Arnold beer.

**To ensure the best possible experience for all guests, only a limited number of tickets will be made available for sale. Tickets sold out well in advance of last year's event - we encourage you to purchase tickets as soon as possible to ensure availability.**

**All tickets sold in advance online. No ticket sales at the door.**

Participating barbecue joints include (subject to change): Daddy Duncan's BBQ (2018 Judge's and People's Choice winner), Eddie O's Texas BBQ, El Burro & the Bull, Firecraft BBQ, Gatlin's BBQ, Harlem Road Texas BBQ, Jackson Street BBQ, JQ's Tex Mex BBQ, Khoi Barbecue, Reveille Barbecue Co, The Pit Room, Tejas Chocolate + Barbecue, Tin Roof BBQ, and Victorian's Barbecue.

Much like Kansas City-style barbecue is associated with “burnt ends” and Memphis-style is known for pork ribs, Houston-style barbecue will become known for dishes that incorporate the many diverse culinary influences of this “creole” city.

HOUBBQ Throwdown 2019

A blind judging process featuring barbecue experts from around Texas will pick a single winner from the entries. Current judges are Alison Cook, restaurant critic for the Houston Chronicle, and chef/pitmaster Ronnie Killen. More judges will be announced soon. There will also be a “People’s Choice” award in which guests can vote for their favorite dish.

**A very limited number of guest tickets will be sold.** $65 general admission includes Saint Arnold beer and samples of each barbecue joint’s competition dish. $130 VIP tickets also include access to the private Saint Arnold Investor’s Pub for viewing of the judge’s panel.
