Dean Gilliam

I grew up around BBQ Cook-Offs with my father's BBQ team in the North Houston Area.  His team was successful winning many local cook-offs and eventually The Houston Livestock show and Rodeo BBQ Cook Off.  I remember the good times that were had and I try to bring some of those experiences to those who participate or attend our events.
A little about me:
  • Fort Worth Police Officers Association- Vice President
  • Coordinator/Organizer Fort Worth Cops for Kids Organization
  • Started the C4K BBQ Cook-Off in 2009 at LaGrave Field with 24 Cooking Teams
  • Moved the Cook-Off to the FW Stockyards in 2010
  • Added the second night of music to the event in 2011 (after party)
  • Started the Peace Officers Memorial Foundation(Texas) BBQ Cook-Off in San Antonio TX in 2013 with 32 Cooking Teams
  • Moved C4K BBQ Cook-Off to Panther Island Pavilion in 2014 and added a 5K fun run and a Car show.
  • Renamed event to Chisholm Trail Music Festival benefiting Cops for Kids 2017

Please feel free to contact me with any concerns about our event and if you have good things to say about the event or any of my staff, please send that to me also and I will be sure that the accolades are passed along.
