Need Tickets to Texas Monthly BBQ Festival?

Then send me your best BBQ review.

- It must be a joint I have not reviewed within the past year (pre 08/31/09).
- It must be a joint in Texas.
- It cannot be a chain.
- It must include meat close-up photos.
- Remote location is a positive.
- It must be send to Prophetsofsmokedmeat at gmail dot com by 9/10.
- Transportation to Austin will not be furnished, nor will accommodations.

The winner, as judged by me alone, will receive two tickets to the 2010 Texas Monthly BBQ Festival in Austin, Texas.

Eating commences now!

Also, if you're looking for more details on the event (which is SOLD OUT), Texas Monthly has answered most any questions you might be able to come up with here and here.
While you're at the festival, be sure to visit with Brad of Man Up Texas BBQ, and pick up your Q Card. They paid and arm and a rib to be there, so be sure to make it worth their while.
If you miss the 2010 version, then be sure to sign up here to get info on the 2011 festival.

Can I send in multiple entries? Also does it matter if I already posted it myself on another blog?

Multiple entries are fine, and they must be original reviews.


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.
