Brisket Premium – Premium Angus Beef cooked very long &
slow using varying temperatures. This is flavor in every bite. The
cook process exceeds 24 hours.
Brisket Select – This is the same meat you see in the local
grocery and is what most BBQ joints serve up. Good, not great.
Beef Ribs – Consider how great roast would be if you could eat it
moist and meaty, right off the bone. Beef ribs are a test of truly
gifted, patient pit-master. Our beef ribs are not dry. They are
cooked almost a whole day to insure they are a pull away from the
bone experience. Every time I eat one of these big boys, it reminds
me of the Flintstones.
Hawaii T enderloin – Marinated & Grilled
This is melt in mouth steak heaven. Be careful, people will talk!
T exas Ribeye w/Bone – Marinated, Rub or Spiced Butter.
Baby Back or Spare. Hot and sizzling or warm with a pink center.
Unique flavors borrowed from New York, Chicago, Dallas & San
Francisco for your consideration.
Prime Rib – Injected & Smoked
Once there was a place called Mother Tuckers in Dallas. Prime Rib
was all they served. I loved it and improved it.
Steaks – U Pick ‘em, we prepare and serve ‘em
You pick the steak type and quality. I will prepare it as good as it
gets. I have rubs n’ hugs, marinades for days, good ole’ garlic-n-
butter, or just plain salt & pepper. Steaks are flavored with real
Roast – My momma learned this treat from her mom who learned it
from her mom, who learned it from….. I also learned from Grandma
Fagala who learned it from…….. And of course, I updated it with
tricks learned from my travels.
Old-T imers Roast Beef – The roast is slow roasted
on a low fire pit. Then warmed in gravy and served with potatoes
and carrots. I learned this on a family vacation while my Dad and
Uncle were researching the ole Fagala family tree. In Fagala’s Gap
Tennessee, my great-great---- kinfolk owned the local Indian fort and
papers mentioned this preparation for one of the local favorite dishes
for gatherings of the whole mountain valley.
Meatloaf – Mom’s meatloaf with veggies infused with Ketchup but
cooked on the pit.
Hamburgers – Yep, I jazzed this up too. 40 years of practice. Even
Emeril would like it, since his method is very similar.
Fagala’s Filets – Your favorite cut of steak wrapped in bacon
and rubbed with seasonings. Further described later. Daddy made
with ground beef to save on $$$ budget.
Ribs – Spare or Baby Back
Brined and slow cooked. I don’t pressure cook or use other gimmicks
to get ‘em tender. My ribs are cooked long and slow over varying
heats to reach a tender pull off the bone perfection. Rib fanatics
claim my ribs are the best they have ever eaten. We specialize in
lots of moist meat that you can pull the bone out of.
Pork Loin – Marinated
Pulled Pork – I prefer the cooking methods used in Tennessee and
Kentucky. Long, slow, nursed in the cooking process.
Country Ham – Smoked
Premium quality bone-in ham is the key followed by a long slow
heat cooking method. Injecting the meat during the cooking process
allows the flavors to reach perfection.
Ham Steaks – Grilled
Chicken Breasts - With bone or without.
Marinated and cooked slowly to a tender juicy perfection. Learned
this cook method from the best of the best pit masters.
Hawaii Chicken Breast - Marinated and cooked slow to
perfection. Took years to figure out this flavor from the West Coast
& Hawaii. Think pineapple sweetness that melts in your mouth.
T exas Chick Quarters (Marinated and Smoked) If you
like chicken, you’ll love this. Served drizzled in BBQ sauce or dry.

seasoned and grilled with a hot brick on a hot pit. I learned this
trick in Philadelphia from a top Italian chef.
Chicken Wings – Bone in, brined, marinated and grilled.
Chicken Kabobs – Chicken marinated, cubed and grilled
served with veggies on a skewer
Chicken Wet Rub - My own version of chicken borrowed from
Tennessee style ribs.
Smothered BBQ Chicken - Smothered in our special sweet
sauce on the grill.
Bricked Chicken- Whole chicken split in half and grilled on
high heat with a heated brick on top.
Whole Turkey – carved – My cooking method requires 28 hours
and the final product is juicy and tender, ready to pull from the bone.
We serve it with dressing and all the fixins’.
Turkey – Boneless - Whole loaf of turkey marinated and slow
cooked to a juice flavor.
Deep Fried Turkey – This ain’t BBQ strictly speakin’, but it
is good stuff. Commonly called Cajun Fried, I inject it from a selection
of ingredients that could add heat, spice, sweetness, and moisture.
Then it is deep fried to perfection. The meat is not greasy, but is
moist and delicate. Even the skin is a treat. (Note: others might
stuff the bird also, but I find it affected the moisture and texture of
the final product the meat.)
Turkey Drumsticks – Drumsticks are marinated then smoked
long and slow on the pit with a constant mopping to keep them moist.
In Texas we eat em’ holdin’ the bone while visitin’ with friends and
Turkey Burgers – Turkey meat is seasoned and stuffed, then
cooked on a hot pit.

chef improved and it’s good.

You pick the fish; we stack it in a pouch with veggies n flavorings and
slow cook it on the pit. Where steamed foods meet smoked foods.
Tastes like steam with a hint of grilled in there.
Fish Tacos – My version really isn’t Tex Mex but closer to a treat
from the Caribbean. Fish Steaks are marinated and smoked on the
pit and served on a tortilla with a Mango Salsa (some might call it a
Sausage – Making sausage is an art. I have visited most every notable
butcher’s in Texas and have determined my favorites, some of which
are modified to my tastes. Sausage taste is all about freshness and
quality of ingredients. My favorites have higher meat to fat ratio and
lean toward beef. The suppliers are not local. I can cook to your
budget and favorites.
All meats can be infused with jalapenos and/or cheese
Smoked Leg of Lamb
Bison (Buffalo) Burgers
Steak, Roast and Brisket – This lean meat has great
flavor that trends very close to beef, without the extra fat. Smokin’
it requires lots of attention because it is so lean it is easily cooked.
Exotic Game – Other more exotic game is possible with enough
lead time to secure the fresh meat. Tell me what will make your
event a success and we can visit about it.
Momma’s Best Recipes – Some Fresh from the Oven – Some
Cooked Long and Slow from the Pit
Itz Not Barbeque
Fagala Filets- Beef (pick your cut and quality) is marinated in
a Fagala flavor, wrapped in bacon and grilled til’ it’s dead.

This is also great with ground beef as we mostly commonly ate it.

eatin’ lots of original Tex Mex flavors. Here are a few of my favorites
that I learned to cook before I could read and write properly.
All dishes are properly served with our own special rice and frijoles.
Enchiladas or Tacos (Beef or Chicken)
My momma grew up on the border. I’ve been makin’ enchiladas
since I learned to walk and get in the way.
Enchiladas – Beef or Cheese are stuffed with onion into corn
tortillas, then smothered in our uniquely flavored chili and topped
with cheese. This is awesome comfort food on a cold night.
Tacos – Quality beef cuts are ground, seasoned and served on soft
warm corn tortillas. Flour can be substituted, but it just ain’t right.
Fajitas (Beef, Chicken, Shrimp)
It’s meat, it’s marinated and it’s smoked. It’s tender or it’s not

start addin’ stuff. I like okra in mine, how bout you?

okra and fixins’ to give it the Deep South flavor.
Grilled Fish Taco’s – Taco steaks are marinated, then
rubbed in blackened seasoning and smoked on high indirect heat.
Served on flour tortillas with a mango salsa (some might call it a
