TMBBQ, Texas Monthly’s franchise devoted to all things barbecue, will roll into Houston to kick off a new season of its Fire & Smoke series.

Fire & Smoke returns in its second year to celebrate the diversity of dining in Texas and the state’s great love of barbecue by bringing together one celebrated chef and one acclaimed pitmaster for an unforgettable evening of culinary matchmaking. The Houston shindig will combine the talents of two of H- town’s finest: award-winning chef and restaurateur Ford Fry of State of Grace, and pitmaster Russell Roegels of Roegels Barbecue Co., one of the 50 best barbecue joints in the state, as anointed in the June 2013 issue of Texas Monthly.

At the exclusive reception embellished with the latest model Porsche vehicles, guests will be treated to a multi-course gourmet dinner - conceptualized and executed by Fry and Roegels, with the former bringing the “fire” and the latter the “smoke.” The culinary creations will feature locally-raised beef from 44 Farms paired with fine wines and handcrafted cocktails by El Mayor Tequila, fusing together the diverse food cultures of Texas. Guests will mix and mingle with Texas Monthly’s BBQ editor, Daniel Vaughn. Gifts and giveaways will be provided by Pinto Ranch and Hal Martin’s.
