Who else is pumped for the SXSW Interactive Festival kicking off on March 8? One of the events we're most looking forward to is The Austin Smoke Experiment, organized by the Food Experiment guys. Theo and Nick, a.k.a. the kings of cook-offs (read an interview with them here) travel across the country staging cook-offs in different categories such as brunch and tacos, and since they're heading to Texas, it was time for a smoked experiment.
The Challenge: To create the best smoked dish, be it some classic Texas-style smoked meat or, um, did we hear smoked ice cream?!
Here's the Deal: Anyone who's in Austin can compete in this cook-off. More info here. If you'd like to attend the awesome event and sample all of the smoked surprises—and you have to physically be in Austin on March 10, that's an important detail—enter to win two tickets here! To enter, just tell us your favorite smoked food (or drink) in the comments below.
To purchase tickets directly, head over here!
You have until 3 p.m. EST on Tuesday, March 5 to enter. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the commenters. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
