Texas Monthly is giving its longstanding BBQ Fest a virtual spin this year, BBQ Fest: Backyard Edition, with livestreams and take-out options from 60 of the state's top BBQ joints.

From October 24-31 participating restaurants will feature limited-time menu items and specialty offerings available for delivery or pickup or, if restrictions allow, on-site dining. To further encourage comfort and safety, the event offers three tiers for ways to enjoy the festival, including an At-Home BBQ Box for the ultimate virtual experience.

The week of at-home festivities will conclude on November 1 with Daniel Vaughn's Backyard BBQ Show, hosted by Texas Monthly BBQ editor Daniel Vaughn from his own backyard.
