Holy Cow It’s Good!

Holy Cow Cookers began competing at The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest 16 years ago. Since then they have participated in over 60 cook-offs and won over eight Grand Champion titles nationally and internationally. They're not your ordinary cooking team. Everything they do, they do BIG. Their booth is set like a massive western saloon with custom bar, bakery, coffee bar and state-of-the art sound and video system complete with flat-screen TVs. Let's not forget the reason they have bragging rights; their famous ribs, chicken, sausage, sauce and all the trimmings are a true culinary delight! “I want you to walk into our booth and say, WOW!,” said Randy Pauly, director. “We could not put on such an amazing show without our Holy Cow family and team members, we owe them everything,” said Nancy Serrano, co-director.
