All our meats are smoked with imported Hickory from the Ozark Mountains and Post Oak from Texas. We cook with stick burner offset smokers. (only firewood, no gas, no electricity) The fire needs to be tended by our pit crew constantly throughout the day and night. Regardless of the day, we strive for consistency over quality. Quality is what we hire for… consistency is what we train. Our meat is also chosen with the same level of "nerdery" as the wood and flavors. For example, we buy only the high quality beef from Painted Hills Natural Beef out of Fossil, OR. We know the owners, sales managers, sales reps, ranchers, where the pack, how they pack, how they feed, etc. They also know what we want and need to supply a consistent product to our customers.
