At the 9th annual Tri-State BBQ Festival April 11-12 at the Houston County Farm Center, there will be lots of great food. One of the highlights of the event is the cooking demonstrations and the free food samples after each demo. The cooking classes are on Saturday only (Friday night is the KJams concert and Yard Party). Discounted advance tickets are on sale through the end of this week at Five Star Credit Union, McLeods Publick House, The Ritzy Rhiinestone, The Main Event and the Dixie Horse and Mule Co. in Wicksburg.

The Wind Creek Hospitality team will be doing cooking demos and classes throughout the day Saturday, and offering samples after the classes. The Wind Creek Hospitality team will be in the 20’x 40’ tent straight ahead and to the left of the main entrance gate on the midway. Look for their 25’ food truck and the tent for the classes. Even when they aren’t cooking, you can come by to win prizes and talk to the team. Here are their class schedules and what they will be cooking:
- 10:30-12noon- Jalapeno Blue Cheese Slaw and tips for great Pork BBQ. At the end of this segment we will give away samples of pork sliders with the slaw on them.
- 1pm-2pm- Ribs and macaroni and cheese. We will give out samples at the end of the segment of both items.
- 3pm-4pm- Smoked Wings and Homemade BBQ Sauce. Samples after the segment.
The classes will be lead by Chef Herbert Tesh. Here’s his bio, in his own words. "Originally from the Carolinas I got my passion for food from my grandmother who I watched and helped constantly in her kitchen. I earned my Certified Executive Chef status through the American Culinary Federation at age 28. I have a diverse background of Hotels, Restaurants, Universities and have even owned my own restaurants. Some of my many accomplishments include many awards in National BBQ Competitions. I call my style Southern Fusion. I like to take classical cuisine and use Southern ingredients or techniques to highlight different parts of the Southern Culture."
We look forward to you coming out to the Tri-State BBQ festival and learning a few tips and tricks to take back with you!
Chefs Paul Norton and Herbert Tesh will lead the cooking demonstrations at the festival
