Al Fuego

Al Fuego is Hot Luck’s main event: a live-action, flame-fueled celebration of open-air cooking styles—from Texas to Thailand. Al Fuego is where we coax our chef friends out of their comfort zone and ask them to cook what they might for friends in their own backyards. We provide chefs the best meats, the coldest beer, and Aaron Franklin might even build them specialty cooker. The end result reflects the entire reason Hot Luck exists: To celebrate the fare rarely seen at large events: the obsessively prepared, passionately executed, inspiring food that chefs love to eat.
