Eats & Bounds: Lubbock Concerts, Events, & TTU Sports – 10/18/18

Your one-stop shop for Tech fans who like to talk food, beverages and Lubbock happenings.

The Hub City BBQ Cookoff was held last Thursday (10/11). This is an event meant to benefit the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce and has taken place yearly since 2000. Local businesses compete in ribs, brisket, “other”, and dessert. I happen to know one of this year’s judges, and we had the following exchange on the Twitter:

With this glowing recommendation, I am officially announcing my candidacy as a 2019 Hub City BBQ Cookoff Judge.

You may scoff, so for those who doubt my credentials, allow me to provide my lengthy resume:

  • Has smoked meats with mild to slight success
  • Cohosts a podcast where “food and sports clash at the goal line” (@23Personnel)
  • Owns an Evie Mae’s cap and a goal to make their brisket
  • Wishes I could make ribs and mac & cheese like The Shack
  • Only serves Tom & Bingo’s sauce (on the side)
  • Eddie’s Frito Pie would make a good last meal (make it a large)
  • Follows @TMBBQ on Twitter
  • Learned how to smoke ribs from my friend’s dad who goes to the pasture for some mesquite when the fire starts dying down
  • Sets the DVR to record Steven Raichlan’s Project Smoke
  • Love my pellet smoker, but sometimes feel like it’s cheating
  • Once survived two days at ChiliFest in Snook solely on smoked turkey legs
  • Thinks T-ROY COOKS should be a household name
  • Promotes local businesses in a weekly post on a popular TTU sports blog (the one you’re reading right now!)
  • Has friends on keto (fine, I’ve officially run out of outstanding resume boosting facts & tidbits)

I implore you, fine folks of the Lubbock Chamber, please consider my humble submission. You can reach me on Twitter or via email (lsredraider07 AT gmail DOT com). This time next year, I look forward to judging the heck outta some meats and desserts. Oh, and maybe let one of your fine members know that the 23 Personnel Podcast is still in search of a queso sponsor.
