HOUSTON, TX - It's that time of the year, ladies and gents. Pull out your cowboy hat, boots and jean jackets because the 2016 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is here!

People are already showing their ‘yeehaw’ spirit, especially the folks over at Cox Media Group. They prepared hundreds of J-ello shots Wednesday night for their VIP guest to enjoy at the World's Championship Bar-B-Que. The annual event kicked off Thursday night with cooks from all over the world, even as far away as Japan, getting their pits ready for some finger-lickin’ grub.
