Barbecue Summer Camp
Join us for our annual Barbecue Summer Camp. Foodways Texas and the Meat Science Section of the Department of Animal Science at Texas A&M University host a three day intensive camp on barbecue history, science, and best practices. This is an unbeatable opportunity to not only get back in the classroom, but to meet other barbecue enthusiasts and the best in the business of Texas barbecue. Drawings are held in the late Fall each year. Please see our Barbecue Camps page for specific detail about our ticket lottery system.

We will gather together deep in the heart of Texas for this meat and smoke-filled (wood smoke that is) weekend, where we will roll up our sleeves and learn about unique barbecue traditions, methods, and styles. Featuring award-winning professors from Texas A&M’s Meat Science Section, well-known pit masters, and regional barbecue authorities, the seminar will provide attendees with cooking and butchery demonstrations that will focus on the different types of meat, smoke, and spices used throughout the state and beyond. In addition, attendees will tour legendary Martin’s Place in Bryan, Texas, before learning about barbecue history and regional differences. Please join us in College Station as we investigate and celebrate one of our state’s great traditions.
