Gulf Coast Gathering

If you haven't already seen the 'Gulf Coast Gathering' announcement in City if Ate, SideDish, Eats Blog or Pegasus News, then check out the details of this great local event below. As a founding member of Foodways Texas (a new organization with a new website) I am especially excited for the event which will be the group's first event in Dallas. It doesn't hurt that I love sucking down a few raw oysters. So come join Robb Walsh and I for some great seafood by Smoke's chef Tim Byres, and help get Foodways Texas off the ground.

The first Dallas event is a fundraiser to be held on Monday, January 24, 2010 from 6:30-10 pm at Smoke in Dallas. A family style dinner of Gulf seafood will be prepared by acclaimed chef Tim Byres and an oyster shucking contest will be held for those willing to try their hands at releasing the sweet meat of the state’s finest bivalves. A screening of “Good, Better, Best” — a documentary about the making of sorghum syrup — will also be shown during the reception. Please come out and support the seafood industry of the Texas Gulf Coast. Texas food enthusiasts wishing to support Foodways Texas can purchase tickets, priced at $75 each, or become members of the organization at www.foodwaystexas.com.

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.
