Members of the Bellaire Optimist Club have their hotline up and running for orders and are preparing their gear for their traditional Super Bowl Barbecue at Feld Park Feb. 2-3.
Customers can pre-order a whole brisket for $75, and a rack of ribs or a pork shoulder for $35 through Jan. 30 before prices go up. Pre-cooking weights are about 12 pounds for the brisket, four pounds for the rack, and seven pounds for the shoulder.
Orders can be placed at 832-782-7458 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more than two decades now, no matter the weather, the Optimists begin staffing their “kitchen” in the Feld Park parking lot on Avenue B Friday, camping out for two nights to get the ‘cue just right for customer pickup in time for the big game. Last year they sold more than 2 tons.
This is the service club’s major fundraiser to support a broad range of community activities, with a particular focus on youth and first responders.
