Welcome to!

All about the Food, Fun, Friends, & Family.

If anyone has info on a sanctioned cookoff (BBQ or Chili) in the Greater Houston area, not listed, please let me know. Including the Go Texan, LSBS, IBCA, TGCBCA, CASI, ICS, etc. In case, I miss it. Thanks.

Looking for sponsors as well. More like an advertising cost as some of our potential sponsors put it.  If interested, please email, call, FB, smoke signal, whatever is easiest for you.  And I'd be happy to send you that list. Thanks for your support.

Good luck to everyone on the Smoke Trail and keep Qing it up yall!


I always ask permission for EVERYTHING that is on my site. So anything on here is either by my request or by your submission. Thank you for viewing.
