Killen's Barbecue Pop Up and Syrahvolution at Paulie's and Camerata Wows the Crowds

Houstonians must be doing something right, as the barbecue gods have been really generous to our city as of late. A couple of weeks ago, Q for a Cause brought Austin-based barbecue legend John Mueller, his pits, his food, and his team to Cottonwood. This past weekend, Killen's Barbecue was served inside the loop not once, but twice: Saturday at Haven, during a benefit for the fire-ravaged My Dee Dee's Pie Shoppe, and Sunday at Q the Wine, a "Killen's Barbecue Pop Up & Syrahvolution at Paulie's and Camerata."
Together with a crowd of more than 100 people, I attended Sunday's incredibly successful Pop Up & Syrahvolution. I say incredibly successful because people were so excited to have Killen's Barbecue inside the loop (currently, the only way to obtain it is to trek over to a barbecue pop up at Killen's Steakhouse in Pearland) that they bought pounds upon pounds of meats, happily waiting in line for an hour or more.
