Todd David Joins Celebrity Judging Panel for 2021 Competition

The Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship (DKBBQC) is excited to announce another new addition to our long list of great celebrity judges over the years as we welcome Todd David, Pitmaster and Owner of Cattleack BBQ, to the judging table for the Seventh Annual Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship.

David owns the popular restaurant in Farmers Branch, TX, and has been listed as #3 on the Texas Monthly top BBQ joints in the state.  Originally from St. Louis, MO, Todd moved to Dallas in the 80’s and ran a carpet and upholstery company as well as a commercial disaster restoration / cleanup company for 30 years before he decided to ‘slow down’.

After selling the business, he decided to do what he had always enjoyed as a hobby – BBQ. Planning to smoke some meat and dabble in catering, he and his wife Misty found a commercial kitchen in Farmers Branch to set up in and started marketing themselves as Cattleack Barbecue. The rest is history, as they decided catering was not where they wanted to be and instead they began opening the doors to their now famous BBQ joint to the public on Thursdays for lunch. It started as carry out but quickly grew into more. You can visit Todd at Cattleack on Thursday and Fridays, as well as the first Saturday of the month, from 10:30 – 2 (or until they run out!)

The Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship is presented to the community by the Men’s Club of Congregation Beth Torah and will be held on Sunday, October 24, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Admission and parking are free; food and beverages will be available for purchase.

The event is conducted under the supervision of Dallas Kosher and the world-renowned Kansas City Barbeque Society.  Teams from Texas and beyond will compete for cash and prizes in the Sunnyland Outdoor Living Shopping Center, at the intersection of Spring Valley and Coit roads, and benefits Congregation Beth Torah Men’s Club, Jewish Family Service Dallas (www.jfsdallas.org), and the American Red Cross.

You can help sponsor the food- and fun-filled 2021 event or sign up your BBQ team to compete. For details on team registration, or for additional information about The Seventh Annual Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship, visit us at: http://dallaskosherbbq.com/.
