An amazing collaboration last night between @corkscrewbbq and @triswoodlands. @pitmaster_buckman and @chefaustinsimmons put up eight amazing dishes, all with a smoked component, and all that blew people’s minds. From a sturgeon chicharron to smoked melon sorbet to pastrami beef tongue, every dish exceeded the last. So glad I got to experience this “meating” of these culinary minds. 📍Tris and Corkscrew BBQ, The Woodlands, Texas 🍽 #collaboreight Dinner #igfood #foodlove #foodie #crityk #foodporn #food #foodblogger #foodbeast #foodphotography #devourpower #igfood #thrillist #food52 #thefeedfeed #foodandwine #buzzfeast #topfoodnews #subtlefoodie #bbq #houbbq #beef #tuesday #tacotuesday #chefs
