My first Episode of the season is an incredible story of High School Kids in Barbeque! I chatted with Ms Sarah Allen at Lubbock-Cooper High School in Lubbock Texas and some of the members of their bbq competition teams! The team is made up of an equal number of male & female students and they all share the responsibilities of preparation & execution. They are cooking on stick burners, some schools even have programs where students are building pits, more to come on that, they are cooking several proteins and making sides as well! Part of their training includes getting a little help from the Pro’s! The end goal is to make it to the state competition and bring home the Championship. This story gives us a glimpse into what’s happening in the HIGH SCHOOL BBQ scene and it’s a feel good story of how the awesome culture is now embracing our youth! Btw, they have a couple of items on their wishlist, listen to the end and let me know if you want to help out!! I hope you enjoy the show, this is the Lubbock Cooper HS BBQ Team!

Snow’s pitmaster Tootsie Tomanetz doesn’t play favorites when it comes to smoking meats, as evidenced by this delectable sampler, which showcases why Snow’s has long been recognized as the top barbecue in Texas.

The “Tootsie” Sampler includes:

1 Beef Brisket (approximately 4-5 lbs): trimmed and oak-smoked low and slow for 10 to 12 hours, producing a perfectly crisp bark, divine smoke ring and moist center.

1 Pork Steak (approximately 2 lbs): bone-in and memorable, a house specialty and local favorite that highlights the brilliance behind barbecuing thick, juicy upper shoulder cuts.

2 rings of Snow’s Original or Jalapeño Sausage (approximately 2 lbs): made from a house blend of beef, pork, and spices in a natural casing, slow cooked, and infused with oak smoke.

Total: Approx. 9 lbs.
