Good weather and hot barbecue greeted carnivores to the Houston BBQ fest on April 26, 2015.

In addition special guests Billy Durney of Hometown Bar-B-Que in Brooklyn, New York and Thomas Abramowicz of The Beast in Paris, France joined in the festivities.Live music and plenty of seating helped make the day enjoyable for all.
