While not strictly a BBQ Festival, this was a really fun event with plenty of good BBQ and maybe too much good beer, wine, and liquor. At just $75 for VIP tickets it was a real bargain and held in wonderful park-like surroundings of the Heart of the Ranch event center in Fort Worth.
Inside was the usual set up, with booths stretching around the event area, alternating food and drink tents. There were a couple of big fire pits set up to help keep folks warm. Onstage the Lone Star String Band played country, folk, and blues tunes and told some really bad jokes.
