The 4th Annual Southern Smoke Festival

in Dining & Nightlife/Things To Do by

The Southern Smoke Foundation was originally founded to raise money for MS; after co-founder Chris Shepard learned of his good friend and former sommelier Antonio Gianola was diagnosed. Since 2015 they have raised  $454,000 for the MS Society and added a second cause to their focal point- people in the food and beverage industry affected by Hurricane Harvey. This years event will continue to support both causes.

This years headliner chef’s include Matthew Rudofker and Tae Strain of the worldwide Momofuku! A dream team of chefs and pitmasters from around the country will show off their talents–some of last year’s fan favorites will be returning including Aaron Franklin and local chefs of the Houston BBQ Collective (Brandi Key (Clark Cooper Concepts), Manabu Horiuchi (Kata Robata), and Hugo Ortega (Hugo’s, etc)), as well as a few new faces. You can see the full lineup here.
The bars will be serving red, white and rosé wines, Sierra Nevada beer, Wild Turkey Old Fashioneds, Aperol Spritzes and Campari Negronis! All perfect for an early fall day.
