Texas Monthly presents Fire & Smoke
TMBBQ, Texas Monthly’s franchise devoted to all things barbecue, comes to Austin with a special edition of its Fire & Smoke series. Fire & Smoke brings together celebrated restaurant chefs and renowned pitmasters for an unforgettable evening of culinary matchmaking.
The Austin affair will combine the talents of Austin’s finest: Host chefs Jason Stude and David Bull of Boiler Nine Bar + Grill and Pitmaster Miguel Vidal of Valentina’s Tex-Mex BBQ, along with a special guest from Kansas City: Pitmaster Rod Gray of Pellet Envy.
Hosted by Texas Monthly barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn, the evening will begin with an exclusive reception embellished with the latest model Porsche vehicles, hand-crafted El Mayor Tequila cocktails, Meiomi Wines and hors d'oeuvres featuring Victorinox Swiss Army knife demonstrations. Guests will then be treated to a multi-course gourmet dinner - conceptualized and executed by the unique culinary pairing of Stude, Bull, Vidal, and Gray, with the former bringing the “fire” and the latter the “smoke,” featuring locally-raised beef from 44 Farms. Ticket holders will depart with packed gift bags filled with goodies by the event’s sponsors, along with grand prizes awarded by Porsche and Victorinox Swiss Army.
