For our Fourth installment of our #Texmexbbqseries , I chat with Ray and Genesis Dominguez of Ray's Texas Smoke Barbecue of Houston Texas.  Ray's has been slinging Barbecue since 2015 and he's been incorporating dishes from his Mexican Roots into his menu from the start.  They're introducing folks to classic Mexican favorites like Tortas, Chicharones preparados, Pepinos con chile, Paletas de pepino con chile and even an agua mineral preparada.  They were a participant at the inaugural Tex-Mex Block Party  hosted by Houston Barbecue and they handed out an incredible sausage called  Chingadera Sausage and some carnitas tossed in Salsa Verde. This is a Husband and Wife Team with a big Dream,  full-time jobs, and a popup usually every weekend.  Their Instagram is loaded with some of their incredible specialties, you have to log in to check them out.   I hope you enjoy the show, this is Ray's Texas Smoke Barbecue.

For our third installment of our #Texmexbbqseries , I chat with Joseph Quellar of JQ's Tex-Mex BBQ in Houston Texas.   JQ's is an Underground Tex-Mex BBQ joint that's  slinging BBQ at popups and at several other events and collaborations.  He's researched the history of Tex-Mex cuisine and he prides himself on keeping those traditions alive.  Although he cooks some great Central Texas Style Barbecue, he likes to think of himself as a Tex-Mex Joint first,  I don't blame him with some of the incredible dishes that he's throwing down.  We chat about his creative Menu which includes items like Fresh Made Chimichangas, Brisket Tamales with Queso, Puffy Tacos and so much more.   He tells us about how he started this BBQ adventure and the cool projects he has coming up which include an incredible collaboration this weekend with Khoi Barbecue, the Houston Barbecue Showdown and the Butchers Ball.   He even shares a bit of his personal side with us.  You won't want to miss this one.

In this Episode I sit with Daniel Weinstock of Maple Block Meat Co in Culver City California.  I first Met Daniel at his beautiful restaurant for a Dinner he was hosting with Author and Chopped Champion Ed Randolph.  They had an incredible feast for a lucky group of BBQ fanatics like myself, it was definitely a memorable night.  Maple Block has been open for 4 yrs now and business is booming.  I dropped in during Lunch Time and the flow of the lunch crowd was smooth and fast paced.  Daniel discovered his love for the Culinary World at a very early age and he worked his way up to a job as a Sous Chef at an elite Restaurant in Beverly Hills.  He went on to College learned the skills that later helped him start his own business!  He's had a visit from Texas Monthly's Daniel Vaughn, he has a recipe in Ed Randolph's book, Smoked and many great articles from several other sources.  He even has a dinner coming up with Phil Rosenthal on August 11th!  They focus on the Craft and are always looking for ways to improve.  While I was there I got a taste of a new Sausage they're trying out using Togarashi Spices, and it was to die for.  I wanted to take a few links home with me! I hope you enjoy this inspiring story.  This is Daniel Winestock of Maple Block!

In this Episode, I interview Jeff and Christine Fitchett of Magillas Barbecue.  Owners, Jeff an Ex- Marine Corp Sargent and his wife Christine started on this journey about three years ago.  A simple fundraiser for one of their kids turned into an idea for a  business.  They Pride themselves in providing the best quality with the best service, their motto is " it's not  the smoke, it's not the rub, it's everything done right".  Like many others in Southern California, they've had to overcome some obstacles in order to get the right licensing but on the day of this interview they'd just signed a lease on a commissary kitchen and they're now poised to take their business to another level.  They are very thankful for their blessings, especially their Children and extended family for being there for help and support in every step of the way.  Their Story is just getting started.  I hope you enjoy this episode with  Magillas Barbecue.
