Dallas, Texas – In an unparalleled carnivorous celebration, the community is poised to witness a grand gastronomic spectacle as the Q BBQ Fest makes its way to AT&T Stadium for a weekend from October 6th to 8th. The colossal event, which has become a notable culinary attraction in recent years, will showcase an impressive 30,000 pounds of delicately smoked meats, including brisket, chicken, pulled pork, and ribs.
Q BBQ Fest brings smoky delights to AT&T stadium, award-winning names expected
The Q BBQ Fest, an emblematic weekend-long jubilee, masterfully unites award-winning cuisine with local musical talents and a rich variety of interactive engagements. Participants can look forward to insightful BBQ tutorials, engaging demonstrations, and a wide array of games and activities tailored to cater to all age groups.
Prominent for its family-friendly ethos, the festival’s expansive reach extends to other major cities such as Kansas City and Denver. These events, exclusively hosted at NFL stadiums, summon an elite cadre of pitmasters from across the nation to present their smoked meat delicacies.
Arlington Q BBQ Fest event’s pitmaster roster for 2023 remains under the cloak of anticipation
While the Arlington event’s pitmaster roster for 2023 remains under the cloak of anticipation, the 2022 lineup featured illustrious names such as Mike Perez of Loro and Brandon Hurtado of Hurtado Barbecue.
“Earlier this summer, we released our very own beer-infused charcoal for backyard pitmasters across the country. Now, we’re excited to switch gears and give Dallas-Fort Worth locals a chance to try the best in barbecue from all 50 states at the Miller Lite House,” Molson Coors Field Marketing manager Paul Stiff says in a statement.
Q BBQ Fest first debuted in Dallas in 2022 and it was a huge success
Produced in collaboration with the Dallas Cowboys and Miller Lite by Eximius Productions, the event emanates from its roots in St. Louis, and debuted in Dallas only in 2022.
“We launched Q BBQ Fest in 2015, and knew we’d build something special in the BBQ Capital of the World,” says owner/CEO Brian Wahby. ““We love smoking meat and putting smiles on people’s faces.”
