Texas does a lot of things right, but if there's one thing it does perfectly it's barbecue. Entering its fourth year, the Texas Monthly BBQ Festival invites the restaurants from its Top 50 BBQ Joints list to show off their slow-cooking skills. While sampling the best from Texas' pitmasters, enjoy some cold beer, live music and a little bit of barbecuing shoptalk.
VIP and general admission tickets go on sale August 29 and sell out fast.
