Texas Monthly is the authority on life in Texas, reporting on politics, the environment and education, as well as the state’s food and culture scenes. Each year, however, one release looms larger than the rest: the highly anticipated BBQ issue. Containing the “50 Best Texas BBQ Joints” list, it is widely considered the BBQ bible and a definitive road map to the promised land.

So, how to get in on the fun if your travel plans aren’t taking you to Texas anytime soon? To celebrate the unveiling of this year’s publication, Texas Monthly is bringing three of its top picks to Brooklyn for an exclusive event. Next Thursday, March 27, Hill Country’s Brooklyn outpost will play host to the pitmasters from Texas BBQ kings Louie Mueller Barbecue (Taylor), Pecan Lodge (Dallas) and Stanley’s Famous Pit Barbecue (Tyler). There will also be a large selection of Texas beer… if you really needed another reason to go. More information and tickets to the all-you-can-eat event are available through the publication’s barbecue issue website.
