BBQ Pop-Up in Brooklyn

by Daniel Vaughn · March 24, 2014

We’re coming to Brooklyn this week, and we’re bringing some pitmasters with us. Texas Monthly is holding our second annual barbecue pop-up at the new Brooklyn location of Hill Country Barbecue Market this Thursday evening. Three of Texas’s best will be providing some of their specialty smoked meats. Here is the line-up:

If you’ve already purchased tickets we regret that Dallas’s Pecan Lodge is no longer part of the line-up. Pitmaster Justin Fourton had a family emergency which will not allow him to travel. Kent Black of the storied Black’s BBQ in Lockhart has stepped up to provide his famous smoked turkey and his family recipe smoked sausage, a recipe that’s been smoking since 1932. It’s going to get meaty.

Thursday, March 27
6:30-9 p.m.
Hill Country Barbecue Market Brooklyn
345 Adams St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

I’ll be there, and I hope to see you too. Check here for tickets.
