Our travels and research took us to the deep woods of Texas through Austin & Mesquite, from the infamous Salt Lick BBQ to the fabulous Rudy's. We ventured through the entire state of Tennessee and learned their style from the World Famous Calhoun's Ribs, and even headed way up to to upstate New York to learn from the infamous Dinosaur BBQ. After years of travel, experimentation, and research (it was delicious), we have developed our own unique barbecue. Dare we call it Delmarva Barbecue! Our huge smoker, which we call Lil' Reggie, was built for us by J & R Manufacturing of Mesquite, Texas. We literally had to tear off the front of our building to get it in and build the kitchen around this thing! It is completely 100% heated by wood fire, no gas or electric heat! Many barbecue places use gas ovens and add a few wood chips for flavor. This may be fine for them, but we found that when you smoke your meats for 12-16 hours, gas ovens impart a noticeable gas flavor to the meat that true barbecue lovers cannot tolerate!
