I love BBQ! One of the ways I love to enjoy it is at BBQ festivals. The smell is in the air, the people are great, and you get to try so many different flavors and styles. All of that and more is happening all weekend at Q In The Lou in the Soldier’s Memorial area of Downtown St. Louis and this week I’ll broadcast the show live on site. I’ll also be serving as a pit captain all weekend for The Salt Lick BBQ crew out of Texas. They are a great, fun group from a historic restaurant that has been around for over 65 years and their brisket is amazing! The pit captains run the front of house operations of the booth and act kind of like the GM for the weekend. I expect to work some long, hard hours but have a lot of fun and maybe even learn a little something about BBQ from some of the pros. The event runs Friday from 4 – 10pm, Saturday from 11am – 10pm, and Sunday from 11am – 6pm. There is live music from national and local bands, cooking demos, master classes, and literally tons of great BBQ from 9 of the world’s top pit masters. Come on out for the action and say hello.
