Lonestar Round Up-Kickoff BBQ 2017

In Texas the natural state of the common vernacular is filled with idioms. These small sayings are commonly used to convey feeling and emotions in a polite and humorous way. One common expression used is “Secret is in the Sauce”, especially when someone is complementing a friends cooking. This phrase has been a gesture of gracious acknowledgement thousands of times; around a plate of barbeque here in the Lone Star State.

Before the age of plastic bottles, getting the sauce out was more of a trick, or a test of patients. You hold it above your plate and wait… Then you tap on it, nothing happens. You patently wait as the aroma of the freshly sliced brisket and sausage fill your nostrils. You begin to shake the bottle eagerly anticipating the flow to begin. A small drip appears at the edge of the glass opening… then it gushes out onto the plate; an out of control flow; and now you hope the copious amount of sauce perfectly complements all the hard work of the pit master… Such is life.

We hold the bottle of life up and wait for special events. Patiently we await the planed events; thinking upon how much fun it will be… that’s the drip. Then the time comes and it rushes forth onto your plate of life, for better or worse. We do our best to absorb every moment to its fullest and savor every site and smell…Such is the long weekend of The Lonestar Round up.

You prepare; to keep it neat and planed out, but just like a plate of barbeque and a bottle of sauce; after it starts flowing you may need to go back for some more bread to clean your plate.

The Kickoff barbeque is a long held tradition of the LSRU (The Lonestar Round Up). This year it will be held on Thursday, April 6, 2017

We encourage those who can attend to come on out and enjoy the long tradition of Texas hospitality and the consumption of potations.

Have no worries, our sauce is in squeeze bottles. We know y’all have waited long enough… and oh yeah, “the secret is in the sauce”
