Hey #phx barbecue fam, thought I'd share this super inspirational story. I've been following @brettsbackyardbbq for a while now and is a large part of the reason why I've decided to pursue barbecue. If you're ever within 100 miles of Rockdale, TX, you should b-line it to Brett's.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have ourselves a #cinderellastory @brettsbackyardbbq is a complete underdog with an inspiring story. Just 12 months ago Brett was working his Corporate job while catering events on the side. With competition cooking behind him he’d occasionally do the hometown VFW competition & popups in his backyard and invite all of his friends. He saved as much as he could, cashed in his savings and took a leap of faith. He spent time getting his body in shape for the grueling hours that he knew he would endure. There were a couple of major Roadblocks right at the beginning and the weather wasn’t too kind, yet he never wavered. Now, one of the coolest stops across #texas & one of the only joints to have a traditional @mobergsmokers #offsetsmoker #wholehog #pit a #santamaria pit by @eviemaesbbq and a hybrid pit also by @mobergsmokers all which allow him to explore his creativity. It’s truly a backyard party with live music, outdoor games, cold beer and whole hogs, mud bugs, Steaks or whatever else he comes up with! I’m so happy that I’ve been around to witness the evolution of @brettsbackyardbbq and I’m so proud of my buddy & his teams success!! Being in the Final Four of this competition is already incredible but hell, they’ve made it this far they might as well win this damn thing!! Get Out there and Vote for @brettsbackyardbbq !!!!!
