Founder James Nuñez, a Texas native, has been making barbecue for 30 years and uses mesquite wood that comes from his family’s ranch. Nunez cooks meat in a smoker which he built himself, and which holds 120 pounds at a time – beef and bison brisket, ribs, pulled pork, sausage and chicken. Sides include corn on the cob, beans, rice, slaw, Texas-style yellow potato salad, and green beans.

The crew! Minus a few and the newcomers
