Touchdown Club of Dallas presents Big Texas BBQ
Touchdown Club of Dallas presents Big Texas BBQ, their annual appetizer and rib cookoff benefiting The Ashford Rise School of Dallas. What started out as a friendly tailgate cookoff in an office parking lot has now grown into a fundraiser with up to 60 teams competing for Best Ribs, Appetizers and Best Tailgate; a kid’s zone, food trucks, and a day of live music headlined by Gary P. Nunn. Big Texas BBQ will also feature a Kid’s Bakeoff where the six classes from the Rise School will each create a dessert to pair with a selected ice cream from Howdy Homemade Ice Cream.
The BBQ Competition will be judged by six celebrity judges: Tootsie Tomanetz, legendary Texas BBQ Pitmaster of Snow’s BBQ and BBQ Hall of Famer featured on Netflix's Chef's Table: BBQ; Daniel Vaughn, Texas Monthly Barbecue Editor and the author of The Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey Through Texas Barbecue; Jeffrey Hobbs, owner & pitmaster of Slow Bone BBQ; Jack Perkins, Maple & Motor owner & BBQ legend, Doug Pickering, owner & pitmaster of DWP BBQ and Douglas Bar and Grill, opening in Snider Plaza in spring 2022; and Marshall Prichard, owner & pitmaster of Sammy’s BBQ.
