    This is a story about a group of friends that grew up in Arlington and all went to high school together in Arlington. All of them moved on to work at some of the best BBQ spots in Texas(and really the country) and then came together to open their own restaurant in Arlington. This was supposed to be open in 2019, but plumbing issues pushed their opening to February to a huge turnout and great reviews. They were only open for 13 actual days before COVID hit and they regrouped with the new hours above starting just recently. In this interview there are great BBQ stories as well as a detailed portion on sausage making. If you are interested in making your own sausage or tweaking your recipe or technique you'll definitely want to check this out.

    This is an extremely informative interview that starts with me pointing out a burn on his arm and goes into EVERYTHING they are doing during pandemic. There are a good number of tips that a restauranteur could pick up from this and even more for customers on what to expect now and moving forward. We also get into the $10K they received from Kingsford Charcoal as part of their Together With BBQ program where they are giving that same amount to 25 other BBQ restaurants.

    BBQ - EP - 195 - Michael Fulmer - Houston BBQ Festival

    In this episode I get a chance to chat with Michael Fulmer from the Houston BBQ Festival. He's someone I’ve been friends with since I first got into the BBQ world. Back when Twitter was the only game in town. Since then he has always been encouraging, generous, and helpful. Not only is he a great resource for BBQ knowledge, but he's a fantastic human who I am honored to call a friend. In this interview we go from his early years in DC to moving to Texas to going to UT to his first real taste of quality Texas Barbecue(hint: it's based in Taylor, Texas). We span his career from Pappas Bros. Steakhouse to Mark's to working for the Killen's Restaurant Group. We go into depth on how he met J.C. Reid(Barbecue Columnist for the Houston Chronicle) to starting the Houston BBQ Festival with him(and in detail about the Festival and the festivals they have created that have branched off of it).

    This story really is about the little things along the way that define your success. Ryan works hard and it shows. We get into his journey from Burbank to the car stereo world to Hollywood where he worked as a set decorator. We then talk about his metal fabrication for tours for Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Pink, and Britney Spears which gave him the knowledge to go into pit building. We talk about his entering a BBQ competition and taking that prize money to buy a 250 gallon smoker. We discuss his work for Bangers Sausage House in Austin, Steven Rossler of Rossler's Blue Cord Barbecue, John Brotherton's Liberty Barbecue in Round Rock, Jay Tinney or Tinney's BBQ and the 1,000 he's doing for Alice's Restaurant at Treaty Oak Distilling. We end with discussing ALL of the items he produces(3 in ones, live fire, Santa Maria style, smokers, & backyard versions).
