You might see a smoke ring in the air around Robstown at the end of the month.

That’s because Robstown officials have announced the 34th annual “Cottonfest BBQ-Cookoff.”

It’s an event most people will expect to see beef brisket, spare ribs and chicken.

More than a dozen cook-off teams will fire up their pits and grills. If you want to enter this year’s competition, organizers say the entry fee is $200 per team. If anyone wants to enter the event, call Wanda Russell at 361-933-5211.
