Boots On and Bellies Ready for the Rodeo Cook-Off

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest is a bucket list item for barbecue connoisseurs from around the globe. BBQ aficionados and pit masters come to Houston to participate in this annual event, slated this year from Feb. 22-24, to show off their creative cooking skills and secret recipes.

It will be a flavorful event full of grilling, smoking and charring for more than 250 teams. It is an invitation-only competition, with winners recognized as truly the best of the best. Most team tents are welcomed by invitation-only, and a ticket during the Bar-B-Que Contest does not provide access to private tents (which are not for sale and only distributed by the barbecue teams).

But this does not stop thousands of visitors from coming to enjoy the early sights, sounds and eats at the Rodeo.


Enjoy Music, Brisket and Rides

Tickets during the Championship Bar-B-Que Contest allow entrance into NRG Park, where visitors can enjoy several public venues, including the Miller Lite Stage at The Garden, which hosts great Texas country music from up-and-coming and established artists, and the Rockin’ Bar-B-Que Saloon, which features DJs and live music, plus an outside patio.

Inside the saloon at the Chuck Wagon, visitors can pick up their delicious, complimentary sliced brisket plate with chips and beans. Plus, the carnival is open for wild rides and fun games for people to enjoy throughout the day and night.


Start the Party Early, and Stay Out Late

Rodeo season is one of the best times to rent a limo, party bus, SUV or luxury sedan. Take the party with you and make it a fun night out. Gather your friends or family together and ride in style without having to worry about navigating through traffic or finding a parking spot. A professional, affordable limo service takes all the worry about getting you safely to and from the event.

A limo is also a great if you’re going to the rodeo as part of a work event. A nice ride will show your client or employees how much you value them and that you’ll go the extra mile to keep them happy.
