Don't have the time or gas money to burn driving out to legendary barbecue spots like Smitty's, Kreuz, Franklin, Snow's or Louie Mueller, but have a hankering for classic Central Texas-style 'cue? You're in luck, then, because highly-regarded pitmaster John Mueller is headed to Houston for a one-day-only charity event.
Eat for a Cause is hosting Q for a Cause with Mueller on Saturday, February 9 from noon to 4 p.m. at Cottonwood in Garden Oaks.
Admission is free and will feature all the staples of Central Texas barbecue, including brisket and sides as well as Mueller's famous hand-made sausage and beef ribs. All of the proceeds from barbecue sales will be donated to the Houston Housing Authority to help provide permanent housing for Houston's homeless veterans.
Mueller is a third-generation pitmaster from the famous Louie Mueller family in Taylor, Texas, and has been featured everywhere from the Travel Channel's No Reservations to Texas Monthly, which noted his barbecue as some of the best in the state. Live entertainment for the afternoon will be provided by The Palisades, a local bluegrass and rockabilly band, so come on out and pretend you're kicking back in the Hill Country on Cottonwood's welcoming patio.
