Critically acclaimed author and cook Jess Pryles will lead a wide-ranging panel discussion entitled, “The Community, Culture, and Science of Barbecue” at SXSW on Tuesday, March 13, 2018. Texas’ rich barbecue culture and the techniques, seasonings and cuts that drive the culinary art will be discussed by Pryles along with meat scientists and pitmasters behind the Texas Barbecue program at Texas A&M University: Jeff Savell, Davey Griffin, and Ray Riley.
The hour-long program will begin at 11 AM and will be held at the Rio Grande Ballroom, Courtyard Mariott in Austin, Texas. After the program, the speakers will move to the Brazos Ballroom where they will have the opportunity to interact with participants and sample some products from Southside Market and Barbeque, Elgin and Bastrop, Texas.
