Houston Barbecue Festival (HOU BBQ) | 2018

Super Beef at Saint Arnold Brewing Company | 2018
February 4, 2018 marked the day of Super Beef. We were in good company cooking along side Wayne Meuller of Louie Meuller BBQ and Patrick Feges of Feges BBQ. The event was put on by HOU BBQ and Saint Arnolds Brewing Company was the perfect host. Our menu for the day consisted of Creole Korean Sticky Ribs and Tri-tip topped with Chimichurri sauce.   
Woodlands BBQ Festival | 2017
We were ecstatic to join some of the top Pit-masters in the Houston area during The Woodlands Barbecue this year. Thanks to those who stopped to say hi and try samples of our pulled pork and brisket sliders! Check out for 2018 event  information. 2018 Tickets sales will begin June 1st.
El Jefe (aka Pit of Misery)
In 2017 we had our pit made from a used 1,000 gallon propane tank. The pit is a beast and Joey (pictured) thought it needed a name, so it became el Jefe.
Dirrty's BBQ Company | 2016
Originally we named our food trailer “Dirrty’s BBQ Company” – you may run across this here and there in some posts online. The word “Dirrty’s” started in 2005 with our competition cooking team, Dirrty Swamp Cookers. The name then became well known with our line of seasonings “Dirrty Swamp” (more on that later). In June of 2017 we decided to make the company name more personal and transitioned to “Victorian’s Barbecue” after owners (Joey & Kelli Victorian).
