Texas isn’t just home to the best barbecue in the country; it’s also the birthplace of one of the iconic barbecue pits, the Old Smokey. Made in Houston, the Old Smokey’s proportions and portability have made it a favorite of barbecue fans and one of the few pits to have its own cook-offs.

On Saturday, the Old Smokey Throwdown returns to the Albatross Bar in Galveston for a day of barbecue, good-natured competition and inventive dishes cooked over coals.
