Community BBQ: Saturday May 4


Houstonia Magazine and D&T Drive-in are holding a Community BBQ and Dewberry Blackberry Cobbler Contest Saturday May 4 from 4pm to 8pm.

D&T Drive-In is an old icehouse at 1307 Enid near Calvalcade and I-45. The cool old/new watering hole has been renovated by Chris Cusack and his Down House partner Joey Treadway.

The $25 ticket includes a plate of slow-roasted pork, potato salad, baked beans, coleslaw, and—of course—blackberry cobbler. We’ll have plenty of beer from St. Arnold Brewery and cocktails from Deep Eddy vodka. Houstonia’s own Robb Walsh will be signing copies of his new book, Barbecue Crossroads.

All net proceeds go to Foodways Texas

Our four competing chefs are Chris Shine of Franks American Revival, Greg Gatlin of Gatlin’s BBQ, Wafi Dinari of The Bird and The Bear, and Bill Leeson of Flying Saucer Pie Shop. Only one will be crowned Cobbler Champion, and it’s up to our guests to decide who it will be.
