The goal of the Houston Barbecue Festival is to celebrate and recognize what is unique about Houston barbecue. Specifically, we want to:
- Recognize the talent, hard work, and dedication of the owners and pitmasters that make Houston barbecue great.
- Make Houstonians true connoisseurs of barbecue by offering samples of great barbecue so they can choose to patronize those barbecue joints committed to only the highest quality of barbecue.
- Celebrate the diversity and history of Houston barbecue by including the many styles of barbecue found here.
