After driving around for 10 minutes We finally find it. However it is a trailer and the sign said "closed this weekend out sick"--- huh...

Gun centric theme is pretty funny; BBQ is pretty meh. Brisket super dry and inconsistent; not a fan of not being able to pick whether want fat trimmed or not. Ribs solid. Got potato salad and were out of all else; it was fine. Houston is so big you really really want to come here otherwise save a ultra far drive.

The brisket was fatty and not rendered well, sausage a little dry, ribs were above average and pulled pork was by far the highlight of the meal. Sides were good too. All in all the pulled pork was worth the trip but don't think I would order the other meats again if I go back.

Tried the 4 meat plate with Brisket, pork ribs, pulled pork & sausage. My sides were creole okra and garlic potatoes.

Trent Brooks was working as a materials specialist for a gas-compression company when a supervisor, who knew of Brooks’s talent as a part-time pitmaster, referred him to an ad on Craigslist for a $12,000 mobile smoker. Brooks negotiated the price down to $4,500, and the rest, as they say, is Houston barbecue history. Brooks quit his day job and set up his smoker in an Ace Hardware parking lot in the nether regions of Cypress,…
