Rodeo Houston BBQ Draws Big Crowd
February 25, 2011

Can you smell the delicious aroma of brisket, chicken, ribs, sausage and wild game?

The  2011 World’s Largest Championship BBQ contest kicked off at Rodeo Houston Thursday night.


Thousands of people partied under the white tents that are setup on the Reliant Park Grounds.

Each tent is hosted by corporate and/or individual sponsors who supply their invited guests with three days of  food, fun, dancing and drinks. 

I had a chance to stop by the Clear Channel Outlaws and the 2 Steppers tents. 

Both were packed with people having a great time enjoying another year of a great Rodeo Houston tradition.

Last year a record 221, 229 people enjoyed the bar-be-que which is promoted as three days of cooking, competition, eating and dancing.

This year the BBQ ends on Saturday. The general public is always invited to the bar-be-que and carnival, but to get into the private tents you must have a wristband or invitation.
