Event Announcement: Our Barbecue, Ourselves (Austin, TX, April 4-6, 2013)

Announcement from Foodways Texas:

Our Barbecue, Ourselves, the 3rd Annual Foodways Texas symposium will explore the past, present, and potential of smoked meat in Texas and its intimate connections to Texas cultural history and identity. We'll consider what we can learn from barbecue as both meal and process. What can both the meat and the dishes served alongside it tell us about our history? How have traditions and techniques from diverse heritages intersected to create today's Texas barbecue? How is the way we consume barbecue and barbecue culture being affected by changing technologies and food ideologies? We'll tackle these questions and more as we feast on generous helpings of barbecue from around the state and beyond. 
Join us in Austin, April 4-6, 2013, as we eat, think, and talk our way from pasture to pit to plate. Go to for more information. If you've already purchased tickets, visit our hotel accommodations page for room blocks and hotel suggestions.
