If you are a barbecue lover, then this event is for you! The Stella Hotel, in collaboration with 44 Farms and Black’s BBQ, will be hosting their first  “Ultimate Barbecue Weekend.”

Spanning three days, April 20 through 22, the barbecue-filled weekend will feature an array of opportunities to learn about and enjoy barbeque, including an educational Texas brisket class led by fourth-generation pitmaster Barrett Black of Black’s BBQ at 44 Farms.The weekend will also feature  the “Barbecue, Brews and Bourbon” event at The Stella Hotel, which will have live music, food stations, local brews and bourbon.

Day one of the event will kick off with a welcome dinner at The Stella’s on-site restaurant Campfire, featuring creative barbecue dishes, served alfresco on the expansive patio with fire pits and panoramic views of the nearby lake.

Day two will start with coffee and breakfast on-the-go from The Stella’s on-site coffee shop, P.O.V., as guests are shuttled to 44 Farms. At the farm, guests will work alongside Barret Black, learning his tips and tricks for preparing great brisket. Class will be followed by a lunch where guests can chow down on Black’s BBQ’s famous brisket and some classic barbecue sides from Campfire. Later that evening, guests will gather at The Back Yard, The Stella’s outdoor lawn, for  “Barbecue, Brews and Bourbon.” The evening will feature live music and stations with food, local brews and bourbon for all to enjoy.

On day three, the weekend wraps up on Sunday morning with a Barbecue Brunch at Campfire. The Stella’s culinary team and Barrett Black will team up to present a variety of breakfast-centric dishes that incorporate barbecue, Bloody Marys and brisket.
