On May 25, 2012, Speedy and I tweeted that we were going to start a barbecue blog and within minutes Rudy offered to be our beef correspondent in Texas. And so, Barbecue Bros was born. Thanks for your support so far and here’s to another 6 years.
Today marks the date that three years ago Rudy, Speedy, and I started this here humble blog in search of the best barbecue out there. And 117 reviews, 3980 Tumblr followers, 410 Twitter followers, and a web hosting change later, here we are. We appreciate your support along the way and hope to find new and improved ways to bring your more content in the next year.
