Texas BBQ Wannabe: 221

221. The Roundhouse (Hong Kong) - "The menu at The Roundhouse is simple and straight forward, no frills. You can either order the Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork and homemade sausages by the pound, Pork Ribs by half or full rack, or enjoy a Sandwich if you are trying to fill up your stomach ever further. The “killer” item, however, is going to be the Beef Short Rib. It is being made limited quantity daily, using US prime grade whole piece of short rib and smoked for 6 hours. All the other barbecue are being smoked with 9 month aged Post Oak Wood for 10-12 hours, to ensure all the meat remain moist and tender, just like the way they are at Texas!"

MEDIA ALERT / CALENDAR LISTING

WHAT: The 4th Annual Super Beef Sunday at Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
WHEN: Sunday, February 5th, 2017 from 11:00-2:00pm.

WHERE:.Saint Arnold Brewing Company, 2000 Lyons Ave, Houston, 77020.

COST: 
Tickets are $50 per person and include tastings from all three pitmasters, beer and a commemorative pint glass.

All tickets sold in advance, online at http://www.saintarnold.com/super-beef-sunday/ .

No ticket sales at the door. Tickets for the three previous events sold out before the day of the event.

The Saint Arnold Brewing Company and the Houston Barbecue Festival announce the 4th Annual Super Beef Sunday featuring Houston's best barbecue and beer. 


The first Sunday in February means one thing in Houston: Super Beef Sunday. Oh sure, there’s also a football game being played. Maybe even a championship game. Perhaps what some might call a “Big Game.” We can’t remember what the game is called, which is fine because we’re not legally allowed to say it! We’re focusing on the BBQ anyway.
 
At our 4th Annual Super Beef Sunday, a master of BBQ from Central Texas will be joined by a couple of young guns from Houston. Legendary Louie Mueller Barbecue will be here alongside Pinkerton’s Barbecue and Harlem Road Texas BBQ. They’ll be doing what they do best – preparing and serving their finest smoked meats to fill your belly before you go to your game-watching party.
 
Of course, you’ll want tasty beverages to complement the BBQ, and that’s where Saint Arnold comes in. Cold beer will be flowing, and you’ll be able to enjoy it from the commemorative Super Beef Sunday pint glass you’ll receive. How convenient!
 
Like previous years, Wayne of Louie Mueller BBQ will have pre-wrapped whole brisket and beef ribsavailable for pre-purchase (at the time of your ticket purchase). These beauties come with heating instructions, so you can tell your friends you cooked it all on your own. Wayne’s whole brisket will be $100 and a rack of three beef ribs will be $75.

In addition, Harlem Road Texas BBQ will pre-sell premium Compart Duroc Pork Ribs seasoned in Chef Ara’s secret dry rub blend from Savory Spice Shop. These St. Louis-cut ribs are meaty, all natural and packed with delicious flavor after being smoked over retired, French oak wine staves. Racks are an approximate 3-3.5 lbs, with 12-14 bones, at $40 each, and will come wrapped with heating instructions.
 
Please note, while the event runs from 11:00 – 2:00 – and we will have plenty of BBQ for that time – do your best to arrive by 12:30, so you can try all of the different items the pitmasters will have to offer.
