Where there's Smoke, There's a Moberg

Moberg Smokers

When it comes to preparing our Central Texas Style Barbecue, there are two key ingredients. First, and most important, is high quality meats but secondly, is the smoke. As soon as you smell the oak and see billows of smoke in the air, you will know you are in the right place for a tasty afternoon or evening. We take our barbecue seriously, so we contracted the best in the business to build our smokers: Moberg from Dripping Springs, Texas. If you are going to do Texas Style Barbecue, then you’ll need smokers from Texas right?

CHEF ZACH PREECE HEADSHOT

Meet Chef Zach Preece!

When it comes to good barbecue, there are a few things that are essential to the flavor. You need patience for slow cooking, quality ingredients and the perfect woods to smoke. But this is barbecue on the beach! We needed a little something extra to set us a part and create a flavor experience perfect for Atlantic Beach. Enter Chef Zach. We knew we needed more than a pitmaster to create something unique. Chef Zach is indeed a chef! He has an advanced diploma in Culinary Arts from Westminster Kingsway College in London and has spent the past 10+ years working in various restaurants throughout London.

Why Central Texas Style BBQ?

Barbecue is the most nuanced genre of cooking. There are four main BBQ regions: Carolina, Kansas City, Memphis and Texas. Within Texas style BBQ, there are four additional sub-regions: East, West, South and Central. Along with the main regions, there are other styles of BBQ including Hawaii and California all with their own unique flavors and cooking methods. Kind of confusing, right? As the barbecue experts, we’ll breakdown the differences within each main barbecue region and more about our chosen style, Central Texas.

Smokehouse Stories – Blog Intro

We have a lot to say and stories to tell so we decided to create a place where you can come to learn more about us and what we do. You will learn all about why we choose the best partners to create our BBQ experience like Duroc pork (Basically, the Kobe beef of pork. More on that later.) and custom Moberg Smokers that give our meats their special flavors.
