Great BBQ and easy to reheat - this was our first order and are very pleased!
Jeff R. - Parker, CO
The food is delicious and my wife and I enjoyed every bite.
Beau R. - Gretna, LA
We ordered the whole brisket. It came in two sections. Very tender and tasted good but wished it was a little more flavorful. Boiling it was an easy way to cook it, but we are going to try the oven method for the other half. Also liked that we were able to get the free shipping.

The ribs were excellent. Flavorful & tender. The hot links were also very flavorful & delicious. Not so much heat that they couldn’t be tasted but spicy enough to satisfy.
