Chef Chris Burris Chris Burris

Growing up in Houston, Chris knew there were incredible pitmasters working all around him, including at his little league concession baseball stand which was the part time passion of a Houston BBQ legend, Jim Goode. After getting out of the Army and moving to Seattle, he found a BBQ "desert" for the kinds of smoked meats he fondly recalled from his childhood. Since 2019, NWTXBBQ has brought authentic Texas BBQ to the Puget Sound through brewery popups, weddings and catering events and is thrilled to be able to offer the real deal Texas BBQ to Seattle and beyond.
