Jack’s BBQ Presents:

The First Annual Low and Slow Festival

A Day of Music, BBQ and Shenanigans Awaits

Seattle’s original Central Texas BBQ joint is commemorating what will be its fifth year in business by holding the first annual Low and Slow Festival on Saturday, August 10th  from Noon until 10 pm. Join Jack and friends at his SoDo location for a day to remember with live bands, Texas BBQ and plenty of games for a day of fun, food and festivities.

The lot outside of Jack’s BBQ will be turned into an outdoor concert venue with an added Texas flair and will be filled with fun activities such as chicken shit bingo, horseshoes, frozen margaritas from Tromba tequila and plenty of Shiner Bock beer. But the piece de resistance will be Jack’s cooking up a whole steer! That’s right, the day will be filled with BBQ beef along with other fare from Jack’s standard menu including smoked brisket, ribs, sausage and chicken.

In addition, DJ Greg Vandy from KEXP and host of The Roadhouse will be hosting the events and spinning blues tunes throughout the day.

The event will be headlined by Robert Ellis who’s second album, Photographs, was named one of the top 50 albums of 2011 by American Songwriter magazine. His recently released album Texas Piano Man has been critically acclaimed with the singer-songwriter’s country blues and piano pop coming through loud and clear.

In addition to Ellis, the day’s lineup includes the following:

Tickets for the event can be purchased online for $25 in advance via Eventbrite or for $35 at the door.  The Low and Slow Festival is for ages 21 and over and will be held rain or shine. Come join Jack and company for what is sure to be an outstanding time!

Jack’s BBQ

The Best Central Texas Barbecue in Seattle!

Jack’s BBQ is based on the BBQ style started in butcher shops in Central Texas in the late 1800’s. Beef and pork with a simple salt and pepper rub, smoked low and slow over hardwoods (post oak, mesquite, hickory), and served on butcher paper.  Sauce is optional (sometimes not even served in Central Texas), along with pickles and white bread.
