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.
Build-your-own sandwich with South Texas-style mesquite smoked beef chuck on a brioche bun. Top with tangy cilantro coleslaw, housemade pickles, and ancho or mustard BBQ sauce. Served with ranch beans and braised collard greens.
