Shiner Smokehouse Sponsors Half Moon BBQ Cook Off

Fall is officially in full swing. Your football teams have most likely had a few good wins and maybe a disappointing loss. The clanking of glasses can be heard at Oktoberfests scattered across the Hill Country, and if you’re like many Central Texans, you are looking forward to some cooler weather and deer hunting season. Shiner Smokehouse loves any excuse to eat, drink and be merry.

To celebrate the season, Shiner Smokehouse is proud to announce that it will be an official sponsor of the Shiner Texas Half Moon BBQ Cook off!  Other major sponsors include Shiner Beer and locally owned Shiner businesses such as Howard’s, Werner’s and Boedeker Plastics. The fun-filled event will kick off Friday, October 18th at 5pm. The cook-off categories include the Jackpot Shiner Open where daring chefs will compete to create the tastiest dish with, none other than, Shiner Beer as the featured ingredient. The categories for Best Brisket, Best Spare Ribs and Best Margarita are also on the cook-off agenda. To serenade the chefs and eaters, fantastic live music will play all night from local artists such as Los Kolaches and our very own talented, Jade Patek! Shiner Smokehouse is thrilled to be sponsoring the tasty brat eating contest on Saturday, kicking off at 5 pm. If you feel up to the salty challenge, the entry fee is only 10 dollars! The winner of this delicious challenge will receive a notable cash prize, cool Shiner Smokehouse swag and all the glory of being the brat eating king or queen!

In addition, on Saturday October 18th, the United Service Organization will be holding their inaugural Ride for the Troops for former and current military in the Central Texas region. USO members will rev their engines bright and early beginning their journey from San Antonio, TX and ending in Shiner, TX. Shiner Smokehouse is honored and proud to support our troops by providing a proper mouth-watering sausage feast for the riders as they arrive in our favorite Texas town. Non-USO members can enjoy lunch by purchasing a $3.00 plate including a sausage link and a side with half of the proceeds benefiting the United Service Organization (USO).

Needless to say, October is a very exciting month for Shiner Smokehouse! We invite all of you to come out to Green Dickson Park in Shiner, TX on the weekend of October 18th and 19th. The festivities will be filled with BBQ, beer and music-in other words, pure enjoyment. Hope to see you there!
