Kevin’s BBQ Joints Move to Texas

Alright, it’s time to take this barbecue thing seriously. After the death of my father (and business partner) I’ve been trying to find my way. I have been doing social media freelance and odd jobs since then, but as most of you know from my blog and website, my true passion is barbecue.

I have a big announcement. I am going to quit all work I’m doing, leave the life I know here in Los Angeles, and move to Texas within the next 3-4 weeks to work at a BBQ joint (to learn the craft from someone who really lives and breaths BBQ) and travel throughout the state of Texas (and beyond) sampling the best BBQ has to offer.

Along the way I will chronicle my journey with posts, pictures, video, and more. You’ll see all of my successes and missteps. This is my true calling and I must answer it.

If you’d like to donate to my crazy bbq adventure (as well as my blog) and know that you are helping me fulfill my dream, I set up a paypal donate button (no donation is too small). I plan on using the proceeds towards setting up my trip, moving, and getting me on my feet in Texas. I thank you in advance.

All you have to do is click this button and paypal will walk you through the rest.

  2. Kevin,

    Following a dream is something that so many people wish they could do, and you’re just grabbing life by the horns and doing it. We’ll all be pulling for you, and I have no doubt that you’re going to enjoy every meal along the way!

  4. Kevin, Kevin, Kevin,

    You have lost your mind! However, I must admit that I am jealous. Dropping it and starting all over, hats off to you my fellow blogger. I wish that your dreams do come true and that you bring us all along for the ride. Of course I will send you money. The great news is that I get to live through you all from the comfort of my city. Cheers to you, I will be donating monthly.

    When you make it big you will have to come to Pasadena, CA. and open up a RIB JOINT! We need one!

    Mr. Pasadena

  11. Good luck but asking for “donations” is VERY lame.

    EARN your way like everyone else.

    Best place to work to get some learnin would be Coopers BBQ in Llano. You could rent a place cheap there also.
