What Is Better Than Texas BBQ? Nothing—Which Is Why This Festival Is a Must-Attend

Live from The BBQ is a downhome Texas BBQ festival, with a little extra sauce! We'll be serving hot BBQ, hotter entertainment. Come hungry for fun, because the pitt won't be the only thing lit! You don't want to miss special performances by Beat King, DJ Chose, MC Willie Beman, MC Beezy, Cal Wayne, and so many more.

Texas barbecue traditions can be divided into four general styles: East Texas, Central Texas, South Texas, and West Texas. The Central and East Texas varieties are generally the most well-known—and what you’ll find a lot of at this event. East Texas-style is slowly cooked to the point that it is "falling off the bone." It is typically cooked over hickory wood and marinated in a sweet, tomato-based sauce. Central Texas-style seasons meat, only using salt, black pepper, and other spices, then cooked over indirect heat from pecan or oak wood or mesquite wood or a combination of woods. Sauce is typically considered unneeded but may be served on the side.

Not only will there be Texas-style BBQ and live music, but there will also be food trucks from across the city, local vendors, photo booths, and interactive games. Visit us online and follow for event updates:, or on Instagram @livefromthebbq.
