For the third consecutive year, Grupo Cunado has joined other industry companies to sponsor the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s annual Bar-B-Que Cookoff. The cookoff features more than 250 teams from around the country who come to compete in one of the largest competitive cooking events in the nation. This popular event runs for three days and attracts over 225,000 participants. Cookoff team tents, including the Just In Time Cookers, are mostly by invitation only, and provide a unique way to socialize with friends, customers, suppliers and clients. This year Grupo Cunado hosted people from Technip, Fluor, WoodgroupMustang, S&W Energy Solutions, BS&B Process Systems, Boccard Pipe Fabricators, Bechtel and KBR.
Attended by over 2.6 million people in 2017, the rodeo raises funds for charitable, educational and scientific purposes to encourage and promote the breeding, raising and marketing of better livestock and farm products at public fairs and to promote and maintain research and educational functions within the livestock industry.
