“America’s Greatest BBQ Festival” in Arlington in November 2022

A three-day BBQ Festival is scheduled for AT&T Stadium in Arlington on November 4, 5, and 6, 2022.

Q BBQ Fest is “America’s Greatest BBQ Festival”, they say – held at the home of the USA team, the Dallas Cowboys.

“No one knows barbecue like Texas, and we can’t wait to welcome the best cooks from across the country right here in our backyard,” Dallas Cowboys chief operating officer Stephen Jones said in a statement. communicated.

Q Fest is or was held at other NFL stadiums as well: Kansas City in May; Denver in June; and in Jacksonville, Florida in late November. He has also been to St. Louis in the past.

The event’s owner and CEO claims that North Texas is “the barbecue capital of the world.” And he’s right: we said the best barbecue town right now is Fort Worth, just west of Arlington.

During this massive event, 30,000 pounds of brisket, pork and chicken are expected to be smoked.

Why Fort Worth is the barbecue capital of Texas right now

At least 10 pitmasters will visit from all over the country.

The festival will also feature live music, although names have not been announced.
