Black’s Barbecue will be participating in the Gettin’ Sauced barbecue sauce competition on Sunday, March 7th in Austin. More details about the competition are available here. We’ll be featuring our original Norma Jean Black’s Barbecue Sauce, our new Pepper Sauce, and our new Chipotle Mustard Pepper Sauce at the event. You can try all of the sauces before the event by picking up one of our Sauce Combos either online or at the restaurant in Lockhart.
Special thanks to our friends over at the Man Up Texas BBQ blog who are putting on the event. They have done an excellent job spreading the word about Texas Barbecue throughout Central Texas and worldwide, and we’re looking forward to this being the first of many competitions amongst Central Texas barbecue restaurants.
If you are in the Central Texas area, please come out and show your support for Black’s Barbecue on Sunday, March 7th at 5:00 PM. There will be door prizes donated by Black’s Barbecue and other barbecues, so you may even leave with a prize. It’s going to be an awesome event and we look forward to seeing you there!

Welcome to the brand new Black’s Barbecue Blog. We’re excited that you are here! If you think back over our almost 80 year history, things have come a long way in terms of how we communicate with our customers. Edgar Black, Sr. would have never envisioned us communicating with our users via a blog, Facebook, or Twitter. Our top mission is to continue serving delicious Texas barbecue to all of our visitors, whether they visit our restaurant in Lockhart or have barbecue shipped to them from our Online Store. The 21st century has brought us exciting new ways to interact with our customers and fans worldwide!
Over the coming weeks, we have lots of exciting things planned, including:
Our blog is not a replacement for our Take Me Back to Black’s Club newsletter, so if you haven’t already subscribed to that be sure to do so now. We’ll continue sharing our monthly letter from our Pitmaster (Kent Black), special newsletter-only promotions, and more.
Is there something specific that you’d like to see us include on our blog? If so, leave a note in the Comments section below. We look forward to your feedback and appreciate the opportunity to serve you!
