The BBQ Joints

(Robert Strickland, rsphotography.info)

This year will feature 21 of the best barbecue restaurants from all over Texas who will pull their smokers onto the square in Downtown Tyler for the third Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival, presented by Tyler Ford, on Saturday, May 14.

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.
