Join The Mission Continues- Houston 2nd Service platoon as we get to enjoy the festivities that kickstart the largest rodeo in the state of Texas. This event is for Friday, Feb. 23rd and was able to get 60 wristbands for this night to varies cooking tents.

Also called the “World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest,” the Houston Rodeo Cookoff is a Texas sized Houston BBQ Party.
Several hundred BBQ cooks convene for three days of cooking competition, dancing and, of course, eating. The 2017 Rodeo Houston cook off draws huge crowds, with a record crowd of 221,229 rodeo cookoff fans sampling the BBQ goodness in 2010.
More than 350 rodeo BBQ cook off teams will compete in the Rodeo Houston barbecue cookoff and also help to raise money for charity scholarships. BBQ Cookoff trophies are awarded to the teams with the best dish in each of the three categories (brisket, chicken and spare ribs) as well as a trophy for the overall winner. Awards will also be presented for the most unique pit, most colorful team, cleanest area, and the BBQ team with the best skit.
In addition to the 2017 Houston Rodeo BBQ Cookoff serving up great Texas barbecue you can also expect lots of live music as well as The Hideout for the 21+ crowd that wishes to enjoy a few alcoholic beverages to go with their rodeo BBQ cook off.
