It was a busy weekend for those hunting down some great bites and drinks. The first run of the Smoked Dallas Festival was no exception. There were plenty of the heavy hitters of BBQ weighing in with samples of rib, brisket, pulled pork and so much more. The long list included Lockhart Smokehouse (Dallas) and their cousins, Schmidt’s Family (Bee Cave), Black’s (Lockhart), Cousin’s Bar-B-Q (Fort Worth) Louie Mueller’s (Everman), and more.
In addition to the traditional BBQ haunts you would have found a few traditional restaurants including Kent Rathbun from Dallas and the underground sensation Frank who were both offering some tasty treats. Also on hand were the folks from Cafe Momentum, who were also the beneficiary of some of the day’s take from ticket sales.
As if that wasn’t enough, there was plenty of music. We certainly enjoyed listening to local chef crooner Dean Fearing with his Lost Coyotes, and another local favorite Sarah Jaffe.
Here are a few scenes from the day.
