Here’s the deal with Cochon Heritage BBQ. Take Labor Day weekend add in our awesome city, the barbeque capital of the world, and you’ve got a pretty awesome weekend. Here’s the word from Brady Lowe, who is putting on the event this weekend:
From Friday, August 31 through Sunday, September 2, 2012, we will join other chefs and barbeque enthusiasts to fire up our smokers and sharpen our knives as we take over Memphis for a weekend of pork-themed events including eating challenges; tasting experiences; special dinners; a heritage pork pop-up restaurant; a 5.55k fun run; educational cheese and pairings seminars; and the Heritage BBQ main event – a friendly but competitive BBQ cook-off featuring a line-up of the country’s top chefs and their teams duking it out for pork glory. We invite you to join us for this ultimate celebration of heritage pork and National Bourbon Month! Tickets for the event are between $50 and $125 and are still available on the website: www.heritagebbq.com
I’ll be there for a lot of it, and I’m super excited about it. Cochon 555 was one of the most exciting events that I’ve ever been to, and Heritage BBQ is taking it to a whole new level. It is going to be great to see so many of Memphis’ great chefs getting together with awesome chefs from across the country. You know the food is going to be awesome. See you there!
