BBQ is a staple of anyone's diet in East Texas. Ribs, sausage, brisket, pulled pork, I am not apologizing for making you, or myself, hungry. So anytime there is a big event involving BBQ, we want to tell you about it (and be there ourselves). Texas Monthly is bringing their BBQFest to Tyler in October and our taste buds can't wait.
