Germanfest Barbeque Cook-Off

Michael filled me in on a relevant Texas BBQ cook-off taking place this weekend in the tiny hamlet of Muenster, Texas. The Germanfest Barbeque Cook-Off on April 24th and 25th is open to all comers. As described on the website, the cook-off is "being brought back as a sanctioned event under the Lone Star Barbecue Society. Chicken, Pork Spare Ribs, Brisket and Sausage - $65 one or all. Sausage provided. All entry fees back to cookers. Jackpot Beans - $10 - back to Cookers. For additional information contact Margie Starke at 940.759.2227 or email "

Be sure to stop by either Dieter Brothers or Smokehouse Barbecue as you pass through Lindsay, Texas on your way to Muenster.

I'll be there helping (by tasting of course) team "Rated PG". Feel free to stop by and sit a spell.



Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
