A CELEBRATION OF FINE BOURBON, BBQ, AND WHISKEY!

#SmokeAndBarrelLC

Smell the savory aroma of oak and hickory. Taste expert BBQ from leading pitmasters from across the gulf coast, complemented by bourbon and whiskey from around the world. See creative artisans and craftsmen at the top of their game. Touch the unique culture of hospitality, cuisine, art, and music of Southwest Louisiana. 

Benefiting the United Way of Southwest Louisiana, there will be over fifty bourbons and whiskeys to taste along with BBQ from out-of-this-world pitmasters.
