“Who we are and how we got started: A native of Kerrville, Texas, Harold E. “Buzzie” Hughes has been cooking barbecue all his life. He used to do backyard barbecues, but 200 people showed up every time word got out Buzzie was cooking. In 1993, his wife, Brenda, finally said, “Enough is enough! Either you open a barbecue place or start collecting donations for these little gatherings. This is costing us a !#$&!* fortune!”
Within five months, the old Comfort Grocery and Feed Store located in Comfort, Texas had taken on a completely new look. Buzzie renovated the old building and turned it into a clean, friendly atmosphere, featuring taste-bud-pleasing, homeboy barbecue, prepared over a mix of oak and mesquite wood, using spices that continue to remain a secret.
