I’ve had the pleasure to be invited to various events such as the Texas Longhorn Classic and Home Brew Texas where I was able to experience the best of Texas’ finest brews and food. It was a fun, interactive experience to watch some of the best barbecue in the world being served up (and a good way to get my name on a beer). I was even able to take some pics.
Texas is known for its barbecue, but I don’t think I’ve ever met a Texan that has a preference for pork or beef brisket over chicken breast. I am of course talking about a lot of brisket, not the kind of brisket you get at the grocery store. The best barbecue I’ve eaten was in Fort Worth at a joint called Roo’s. It was so good I had to have it twice.
The name Texas comes from the Spanish word for “boiling spring water.” The state is known for its barbecue, and I guess that is why we like to talk about it a lot. But Texas also has an entire state-sponsored barbecue festival each August called the Roos Prairie Texas. It is a large, annual competition where the region’s best barbecue chefs from all over the country compete to produce the best barbecue and take home the biggest prize.
The two most popular barbecue sauces in Texas are Texas-style hot sauce and BBQ sauce, but there are many other regional variations. Our favorite is the “Tex-Tex” sauce, which is a blend of a blend of hot sauce, Texas sauce, and mustard.
The Roos Prairie Texas competition is one of the larger events for barbecue in the United States. It’s located in northern Austin, Texas, and this year’s event was held at a new site, the new City Park in Uptown. It was a bit of a trek for the teams, as they had to drive their trailers to the location from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but overall it was a lot of fun.
It was fun to watch the guys compete, but there was a lot more work involved in getting their trailers to the park and into the competition. The Roos Prairie Texas competition is one of the largest events for barbecue in the United States. It was held in Austin, Texas, in October this year, and included teams from nine states, and the event was held at the new City Park in Uptown.
The Roos Prairie Texas competition is a $1 million event where teams will compete to win money and barbecue. In addition to the cash, teams will also receive a trip to New York City and a trip to the Austin City Limits music festival. As for the barbecue, teams will compete to cook the best brisket they can, plus they will compete to taste as many barbecue ribs as they can.
The event kicks off tomorrow and runs through October 23rd. The next competition will happen on November 1st.
The Roos Prairie Texas is the latest addition to the Austin-area park system and is the second of three parks to be built in Austin, after the Austin Zoo, which is also located in Uptown. As for the competition itself, it’s a combination of two other competitions that Park City, UT will be hosting this weekend that include the Austin City Limits music festival as well as the Austin City Limits, which is a giant music festival in Austin.
The Roos Prairie Texas (aka the Prairie State) is a prairie region of about 11,000 acres on the outskirts of Austin, Texas that runs from New Braunfels, Texas to the city. The area is very scenic and it is full of trails and open space. With that in mind I think it’s safe to say that the park is very laid back and casual, not at all like the other parks in the Austin area.
