TMBBQ Fest 2018

Grillfest, TMBBQ Fest and Grill Your STEAK Off

September 14, 2018 spoon 0 Comments

Yinz Love BBQ at TMBBQ Fest!
Wait, that sounds like I’m presenting. Sooooo not the case but I may track down BBQ people to chat with for the site. I’m going as a fan this year to check out the popular TMBBQ Fest in Austin this November. This is the first major BBQ event for me and have my fingers crossed for NBBQA in KC this April.

While in Austin I plan on waiting in the Franklin line one day and hit Snow’s and a few others so I can come back to PA with meat sweats for weeks. Can I write this off as an expense for research? I better find a tax professional!  If you’re heading down for this event let me know and the first Lone Star is on me!
