Garren Kirkman

Growing up in a BBQ State like North Carolina where pulled pork is king, Garren found that his true passion was recreating Texas style sliced brisket. It has been a long road trying to find just the right cooking style, grill, rubs, wood and much more but he found his niche on a true “stick burner”, a 500 gallon propane tank transformed into a horizontal offset smoker to be exact. He only cooks with local hardwood including oak and pecan. To Garren, food is a labor of love and we think that alone sets us apart. But not only do we offer top notch meats, all of our side dishes are from-scratch and always changing, evolving and customizable to anyone.

Co-Owner

Kelly Kirkman

I’m a wife supporting her husbands dream and that includes owning a BBQ business. I love talking to people, I love the look on their face when they try our food for the first time and I love hearing the words, “This is the best BBQ I’ve ever had!” Seeing Garren doing something he loves gives me pure joy and being behind the scenes is perfectly fine by me! This is his gig and he deserves all the credit in the world!
We could NOT do this without the help and support of our family and friends. Prepping meat, washing dishes and cleaning up is always more fun while you’re laughing with the people you love. We thank y’all from the bottom of our hearts!
