One of the most well-known BBQ aficionados in Texas, Daniel Vaughn, will join us at the Celebrity Judging Table for this year’s Fourth Annual Dallas Kosher BBQ Championship. The family-friendly event, offering free admission and free parking, will take place on Sunday, October 28th.
Daniel grew up in Ohio before heading to New Orleans for architecture school at Tulane University. He moved to Dallas in 2001 and worked as an architect for 12 years. During that time, he was a mere barbecue hobbyist, eating, reviewing, and writing about smoked meats for his popular blog, Full Custom Gospel BBQ. Then, in April 2013, the hobby turned to a profession, as he became the world’s first barbecue editor at Texas Monthly. He has eaten at nearly 1500 barbecue joints across the world, and recently won a National Magazine Award for Texas Monthly’s 2017 Top 50 BBQ issue. His first book, The Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey Through Texas Barbecue, was released in May 2013 by Ecco, Anthony Bourdain’s line of books and is available online or your local bookstore.
