Owners Mike McMillen and Kyle Tucker began with a passion for the ART of slow smoking on "stick burner" pits, A.K.A the "hard way"... From 16+ hour brisket cooks in fires fed with real hardwoods local to our region, to our classic BBQ sides painstakingly prepared from scratch in a way that honors the diverse flavors of our city, we are as proud of our product as we are the authenticity of our art. For nearly 7 years we have shared that passion one plate at a time with groups ranging in size from 25 to 2500 hungry folks! We believe that combining the heritage and culture of traditional barbecue methods and techniques with the flavors and styles of one of the greatest food cultures in the world (H-TOWN!!) creates a product that is as authentic as it is innovative. We will feed you in a conference room or a cornfield, stadium lots or office parks, and for the first time, alongside some of Houston's finest artists and makers!
- OUR STORY -
It all began in the kitchen....
After cooking for our friends and family for over 10 years, we decided to open a catering business called “Wrecking Crew BBQ” in 2014. Over the last five years our part-time business has catered countless jobs, even serving as many 2,000 people at a time.
When Texas A&M renovated Kyle Field a few years ago, they opened a BBQ stand inside the stadium called “Wrecking Crew BBQ.” As Aggies ourselves, we were not interested in competing with our alma mater; so we changed our name to Brisket Houston.
We had every intention of keeping the business part-time, but after attending over a dozen weddings in the past 2 years and repeatedly experiencing over-priced, below-average food that wasn’t served hot; we decided to pursue Brisket Houston full-time to fulfill the void in the catering industry.
If great food and quality service at a reasonable price is what you need, we are here to cater your business lunch, rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, tailgate experience, or party at your house. We love BBQ, but we are a full service catering company offering a variety of cuisines.
