Pitmaster Joe Riscky joins the Celebrity Judging Panel at this year’s Fifth Annual Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship

Joe Riscky, native Texan and devotee to the art of barbecue, will pull up a chair at the celebrity judge’s table at this year’s Fifth Annual Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship. The family-friendly event, offering free admission and free parking, will take place on Sunday, October 27th.

Joe is a fourth generation pitmaster from the Riscky barbeque family and has devoted himself to the art of barbecue. From the wood he uses (post oak), to the smoker he fires up, to his custom rubs from his own recipes, Joe knows barbecue and has brought his knowledge to his latest venture, Joe Riscky’s Barbecue in Fort Worth. In addition to his restaurant, he contributes to the legacy of Texas barbecue though his involvement with Food Ways of Texas (www.foodwaystexas.com). Joe started his own Barbeque company in 2018 at the wild Acre Brewery in the old Ranch Style Beans plant and has seen great success since firing up the smoker.  When he’s not manning the pits, he’s out helping his chuck wagon friend cook on the open range.
