Smoky… savory… sumptuous. These words can be used to describe both decadent Texas barbecue and nuanced notes of hand-crafted bourbon. This summer, guests at the acclaimed Omni PGA Frisco Resort will have the opportunity for an exclusive experience that celebrates the heritage of both barbecue and bourbon.

Resort guests can elect to participate in Texas Barbecue & Bourbon: Up Close and Personal, a semi-private education and tasting experience. Participants will gather at the resort’s popular Ice House in the Monument Realty PGA District for a cooking and smoking demonstration with the restaurant’s pitmaster. Each guest will receive a welcome cocktail or mocktail to sip on while watching how to season, trim and wrap an authentic Texas brisket before learning how to smoke the meat to perfection. The demonstration also includes an overview of the smoker, nicknamed Lucille, a Q&A session with Executive Chef Adam Solowitz, and of course, samples of Ice House brisket and a take-home bottle of Ice House’s signature Dr. Pepper BBQ Sauce.


There’s no better way to cap off an amazing barbecue experience than walking through four decadent pours of Garrison Brothers Straight Bourbon Whiskey, the first legal bourbon to be produced outside of Kentucky. For the final hour, a Garrison Brothers distiller will teach guests how to properly taste the family’s acclaimed portfolio of spirits, while regaling them with Texas bourbon lore!


The excitement continues once the guest returns home, where Garrison Brothers will send a custom 3L barrel, perfect for making batched, barrel-aged cocktails.

Texas Barbecue & Bourbon: Up Close and Personal is limited to 12 people per experience and is only available to resort guests 21 and over on Saturdays, May 25 and Aug. 31. A portion of the $250 per person fee will benefit Frisco Family Services. Guests interested in reserving this experience should reach out to a resort Experience Planner at 469-305-4552.
