Tootsie Tomanetz

September 2, 2020

Back in September Netflix premiered a new season of their show Chef’s Table highlighting four pioneers in BBQ.  Tootsie Tomanetz, who is in her 80s and is one of the most well-known and highly regarded Pitmasters of Central Texas was truly inspiring.  Tootsie works as a custodian at a local school but her shift at Snow’s BBQ is truly where her passion lies.  BBQ has brought her through some tough times and I know many people who can relate to that.  Tootsie brings light and joy to people who travel near and far to see her.  She’s humble and modest, but in the eyes of true BBQ lovers she’s an A-list celebrity.  I can say with certainty Snow’s BBQ is on my bucket list! I wanted to share a couple of great articles on her that I found.  One gives an in-depth background on her life and the other is a look at how the pandemic has affected her relationship with BBQ.  If you haven’t watched Chef’s Table: BBQ on Netflix, I suggest you you grab a big plate of brisket and binge it immediately!
