What kind of wood do you use?

Answer:
We use a combination of Hickory and Mesquite woods to give our Guests the taste of real Texas barbecue. Hickory gives off a light smoke that adds sweetness, while the Mesquite creates a heavier smoke that gives our meats that little extra bite. Our flavor profile offers a slightly sweet smoke that truly complements the high quality meats we serve.
