Big Foot Barbecue

It’s Kansas City-style BBQ cooked on a west Texas-style cooker with white oak. To my knowledge we are the only Central Oregon BBQ company that prepares Brisket, Pulled Pork, and ribs on a hand-tended cooker without the aid of electricity or gas. We serve freshly made sandwiches, bowls and platters as well as freshly made smoothies and funnel cake
