The 15th annual Texas Tamale Tailgate was held after Army’s big overtime win Saturday Oct. 21!  T3 is held at the beautiful 49er Lodge and the gorgeous weather did not disappoint.  The tailgate is hosted by the West Point Parents’ Clubs of Greater Houston and North Texas for cadets and friends.

Over 600 Texans and “Texans-for-a-day” were treated to a real-Texas BBQ provided by the JBW BBQ team from Wichita Falls, Texas.  The 12-person strong JBW BBQ trailered their BBQ smoker and all the fixin’s, including over 1,100 pounds of Texas brisket, ribs and sausage as well as delicious Texas Tamale Company products.

The Texas Tamale Tailgate is made possible by over 70 volunteers from both the WPPCGH and WPPCNT.  A big thank you to the many sponsors and especially JBW BBQ team, Southwest Airlines, Shiner Beer, Texas Tamale Company, Buc-ee’s, Charles Cooper/Cyrus One, Go-Go Squeeze, the City of Wichita Falls, TX, Houston Astros, Dallas Mavericks, Houston Dynamo and the Houston Texans!
