Sneak Preview: The 8th Annual Texas Monthly BBQ FEST #tmbbq #bbq #bestintexas

Attention all Texas BBQ lovers! What if I told you that you could sample the very best BBQ from all over the state in one afternoon? This scenario is a dream come true for Texas BBQ fanatics! Texas Monthly magazine's 8th annual TMBBQ FEST is being held Sunday, November 5th at Austin's The Long Center for the Performing Arts. This smoketacular event will take place from 1:00-4:00 p.m. -- and there are still a few tickets available for purchase. This will be our fourth time to attend and cover the TMBBQ FEST, and it’s always a great time. This year, more than 30 of Texas' best BBQ joints are taking part -- including Austin’s beloved Franklin BBQSnow's BBQ from Lexington (currently ranked #1 in the state by Texas Monthly), and longtime favorite Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor. 

Every participating BBQ joint has a booth where hungry BBQ lovers line up to sample their brisket, ribs, sausage…and fun surprises like lamb chops too! As these picture from last year’s TMBBQ FEST show, we had a great time sampling some amazing BBQ.
In addition to fabulous Texas BBQ as far as the eye can see, attendees can also purchase soft drinks, beer, and cocktails to wash it all down. There’s also plenty of great live music to enjoy – the event is in Austin, after all! Bottom line: TMBBQ FEST is a fun afternoon where BBQ lovers of all ages mingle and sample as much smoky Texas BBQ as they can eat in a beautiful location near picturesque Lady Bird Lake. Keep in mind that this is a very popular event, and tickets typically sell out before the day of the event. If you are interested in attending the 2016 TMBBQ Fest, I highly recommend you purchase your tickets online as soon as possible! 
VIP Tickets for this family-friendly event can be purchased online. VIP tickets are $165 and include noon admission, two drink coupons, and a subscription to Texas Monthly. General Admission tickets are $80 each, and discount tickets for children 5 and under are just $10.
The Weekend Gourmet team will be posting lots of fun social shares the day of the 2017 TMBBQ Fest – including live video via Facebook and Instagram!
