The BBQ Joints

Fifteen of the best barbecue restaurants from all over Texas will pull their smokers onto the square in Downtown Tyler for the first-ever Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival on Saturday, May 3.

These restaurants are some of the most celebrated in the Lone Star State (thus, the world), and you’ll have the opportunity to sample tasty smoked meats from each one.

You can click the name of each restaurant to read their story, all of which are unique, historical and are crucial to the success of each one.
