On Monday night Eater readers, barbecue fans, and lovers of things beef descended on the lower levels of two-star barbecue joint Hill Country to do something no one has done in that hallowed meat hall before—consume almost a dozen preparations of cow, from the cheeks to the tail, all while drinking beer, tequila, and Moonshine, and listening to badass Bushwick band Gunfight! Owner Marc Glosserman noted chefs Charles Grund, Jr. and Ash Fulk were especially amped to work the whole half of a (700 lb) cow and to experiment outside of their traditional menu of brisket, shoulder, and ribs. By the end of the night, cocktails were consumed, Moonshine shots obliterated, tongue and oxtail tacos devoured, and meat sweats were had by all. And look, Josh Ozersky was there. Check out a montage of the event above, a video and a menu below, and stayed tuned for the next Eater Exclusives announcement soon.
Menu: Oxtail tacos, tongue tacos, beef cheekc on house-made crackers, hot links on crackers with Shiner mustard, whole leg, shoulder, brisket, short loin, prime rib, bone-in steak, sirloin.
A special thanks to Hill Country, Original Moonshine, and Gunfight! for making the evening possible.
