Brisket and pork belly get a lot of attention these days, but sausage is an essential addition on every solid barbecue menu. The first annual Sausage Wars is a chance to sample selections from 10 Texas pitmasters representing several Houston-area cities. Tickets include samples and live entertainment from Buck Yeager plus two beers each for attendees 21+. General admission starts at 6 p.m. and tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for children ages 5 through 12. A limited number of early admission tickets are $35 each and allow access beginning at 5 p.m. This event will be hosted at an indoor venue, so it will happen “rain or shine.” Purchase tickets here.
