Some men are driven by a need for fame. Some men seek glory. Buz has always sought out the perfect barbecue. Not that par-boiled, mass-produced, liquid-smoke injected kind, either. Nothing but real barbecue will do.
Buz began his quest by working along side the old timers who dedicated years to the art of perfecting the pit. Sharing secrets that chefs like Bobby Flay would do a great deal to get their hands on.
From the open pits of Texas to the whole hog barbecues in North Carolina, Buz has cooked, eaten and learned from the best.
But real barbecue isn’t something that comes from a recipe. Real barbecue is something that only happens with dedication to the art, and respect for the patience required to smoke the most delicious meats possible until they’re perfectly tender.
It was on one such journey, at the crossroads that connect the mountains of Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia, that Buz ran across Ned.
Ned was producing the best barbecue that Buz had ever seen, heard about or tasted. Using recipes that had been handed down for over 150 years, that old-timer was a country legend and the best kept secret in the entirety of the barbecue world.
Before giving up the ghost and moving on to the next great barbecue adventure in the sky, Ned entrusted these secrets to Buz, making him promise to keep Ned’s BBQ traditions alive. Today, Buz is still honoring that promise by bringing delicious, real barbecue to Richmond, VA.
You could say that Buz is a man on a mission… and you’d be right.
