Redefining the art of smoking, one Meat at a time.

What style of barbecue
do we serve? Our own.

Prime Barbecue brings together the best of all great BBQ techniques to create something uniquely its own. The process begins with the best meats, seasoned with perfect spice blends and then smoked with 100% hardwood for many, many hours until the perfect harmony of smoke, flavor and tenderness emerges. 

Our food is steeped in tradition, but given new life. 

Our approach is simple: source the best quality ingredients, keep it simple and cook it the right way. We cook our barbecue with plenty of wood and time, adding just the right amount of salt and spice to let that lovely marriage of passion and process evolve into something transcendent.

About The Head Fire Maker

Christotpher Prieto is a champion pitmaster, book author, barbecue judge, teacher and barbecue eating expert. His journey into cooking and the world of barbecue began when he was a child.

No matter what you grew up with,  good barbecue speaks for itself

Fond memories of Texas and his desire to find the “soul” of barbecue sent him on a personal quest to perfect the art and science of slow-smoked meats. Today, after years of cooking on the professional barbecue circuit and traveling the country learning various cooking styles, Christopher believes he has finally achieved what he considers “barbecue excellence” with his own signature style that fuses together elements of Texas, North Carolina and Kansas City flavors.
