One of the most indisputably popular things to do in Austin is the consumption of quality BBQ. If you are as big of BBQ lovers as we are, we suggest you head to the Four Seasons on November 20 to catch Barley Swine and Odd Duck’s Bryce Gilmore take on the Heritage BBQ by Cochon555 competition.
The event brings together five different chefs, each preparing six dishes using a whole pig with different old-world techniques and influences. In addition to dishes from the competitors, guests can enjoy bites of BBQ in all cultural incarnations from some of Austin’s finest chefs, including Epicerie‘s Sarah McIntosh, as well as spirits and wines.
