Mumphord’s Place Bar-B-Q on “The Texas Bucket List”

One of the original stops on the Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail will be featured on the television show.

“The Texas Bucket List” the weekend of November 16-17. The Victoria Convention & Visitors Bureau created the Coastal Texas Barbecue Trail, featuring a number of Victoria’s favorite barbecue joints and some of the best barbecue in the state, in 2015 to promote Victoria’s authentic Texas barbecue scene.
Brothers Ricky and Keith Mumphord have been serving up old-school smoked meats since 2000, but their methods go even further back.

Since 1904, the Mumphords have been celebrating supersized family reunions with massive barbecue feasts. Ricky and Keith took this family tradition and turned it into a thriving BBQ business that quickly became the talk of the town. Host Shane McAuliffe will feature a special platter built for The Texas Bucket List filled with chicken, sausage, brisket, ribs, turkey, pork chop, along with some legendary sides of green beans and potato salad.

Every day, the brothers arrive early at Mumphord’s Place to fire up the pit the way their father and uncles did before them, with fresh mesquite and oak firewood. Although they continue to grow in popularity, Mumphord’s Place never sacrifices their family’s classic methods of smoking meats.
Victoria Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Joel Novosad said it is exciting to see the Mumphord Brothers get the recognition they deserve.

“Every barbecue enthusiast in Victoria has heard of Mumphord’s and this show will help spread the word across the rest of Texas,” Novosad said. “All of the members of the Texas Coastal Barbeque Trail serve up great food in an authentic atmosphere. The television feature will help Victoria shine as a destination for great barbecue in Texas.”

The show will air in Victoria on Sunday, November 17 at 5:30AM on KXTN-CBS, at 6:30AM on KMOL-NBC, and at 4PM on KAVU-ABC. Link for schedule:
