Chris Shepherd, along with the HOUBBQ Collective, will host the fifth annual Southern Smoke festival, held in the parking lot outside of Blacksmith and Georgia James.
This year, a dream team of chefs and pitmasters from around the country will cook, with some of last year’s favorites returning and quite a few new faces—from Aaron Franklin of Franklin’s Barbecue, TV chef Matty Matheson, and Chicago's Sarah Grueneberg (Monteverde Restaurant & Pastificio) to local stars like Justin Yu (Theodore Rex, Better Luck Tomorrow).
The event raises funds for charitable purposes, the Southern Smoke Emergency Relief Fund, as well as the MS Society. Admission Tickets are $200 for general admission $350 for VIP. Click here: link for more information.
