Now in its fourth consecutive year, TMBBQ FEST is a gathering of Texas’s finest offerings as named in the Top 50 BBQ Joints list of 2013. Join Travaasa, Texas Monthly, and 22 of the “best barbecue joints in the world” at The Long Center in Austin on November 3 for a hearty helping of succulent meat, ice cold brews, and toe-tapping tunes. You will also get the chance taste offerings from Travaasa’s own food truck So Fresh and So Green.

The number one, top dog, five star winner of this year’s barbecue roundup is Austin’s very own Franklin Barbecue, headed by pitmaster Aaron Franklin. If you haven’t waited the two hours for flavorful, melt-in-your mouth, sauce-smothered brisket, you haven’t lived. Plus the beef at Franklin is hormone- and antibiotic-free, so you can feel good about indulging in as much meat as you can muster.
