Jess Pryles asking Davey to talk about beef short ribs
Faculty and students with the Texas Barbecue program at Texas A&M University participated in the Lipton Tea/Texas A&M BBQ Genius event held in the Pepsi Fan Zone on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Lipton Tea provided samples of their Lipton Peach Tea, and Rudy’s Barbecue provided sausage tacos. Games and give aways for kids of all ages were available for the folks who stopped by. The program was coordinated by the Texas A&M University Division of Marketing & Communications, and Jess Pryles, noted author and Hardcore Carnivore, was on hand to help with the presentations and to share her knowledge about meat and barbecue.
