Shut the front door! Renowned Food Network star Guy Fieri is headed to the State Fair of Texas in October.

Fieri will be co-hosting Carnival's Kids BBQ Challenge, a cooking competition for children in the Texas 4-H Association (a youth development program that is part of Texas A&M). The winner, winner, barbecue dinner will be judged by "local food and barbecue enthusiasts," and they will get a free Carnival cruise (Fieri has restaurants on many Carnival ships). Put it on a flip flop!

The bus to Flavortown arrives at the State Fair on Oct. 11 at 4 p.m., which is good, because I'm all out of Guy Fieri catchphrases.
