One bite of our slow-smoked meats and you'll know the McKenzie Brothers are serious about preparing and serving the best barbeque to be found in the Lone Star State.
Our story of great Texas barbeque starts in 1984 when brothers Kevin and Darin McKenzie got jobs at a small town, family-owned barbeque joint. It wasn't a fancy place — just good barbeque served up right. It was a good first step — in the right direction.
With the help of barbeque legend Roland Lindsey of Bodacious Barbeque, older brother Kevin and his wife Lisa opened the first McKenzie’s BBQ in Huntsville in 1992. Their approach was simple: slow cook the finest quality meats in custom-made smokers constructed by legendary barbeque pit builder A. N. Bewley.
The McKenzie approach doesn’t feature bottled sauces or synthetic flavorings − just a simple rub of quality spices and the natural flavors of ribs, brisket and other meats slowly cooked to perfection. It’s a concept that proved popular with locals, building a reputation for consistent quality in an area of opinionated barbeque enthusiasts.
