In this Episode I interview Zardrell McNight of Z's Craft Barbecue in Grundy County Iowa.  Originally from Richmond Virginia this young man started cooking barbecue at an early age and After having aha moment at ZZQ Barbecue in Richmond Virginia,  he decided to start chasing his dream of starting a Texas Style Barbecue business. He prides himself in cooking with 100% Wood on a traditional 1000 gallon offset smoker and he has another Pit on order with a popular Pit Builder in Austin Texas.  Although he's currently focused on Popups and caterings he has big plans for the future.  I hope you enjoy this story!
