There is nothing better than the smell of the BBQ smoker carrying aromas of various tasty meats through the Texas fall air, except maybe a plate of smoked BBQ sitting right in front of you! This week’s events feature BBQ hog, Barbeque on the Pedernales, pumpkin patches, a chalk festival, and, of course, Hill Country wine!
