CENTRAL TEXAS STYLE
Central Texas style bbq brisket began in the German and Czech meat markets of small towns such as Lockhart, Elgin, Luling and Taylor as a way to tenderize and preserve the unsavory or tough cuts of beef customers and butchers had little use for. The style is characterized by its simple rub of salt and pepper, cooked at low temperatures for long periods of time in offset smokers using oak wood.
This tradition and the general meditative nature of tending a fire is one of the things I missed about Texas when I moved to San Francisco in 2013. so in the summer of 2016 I purchased an offset smoker and began that tradition here. What started out as a way to rid myself of leftover brisket turned into a regular pop-up event at Provender Coffee & Provisions in Potrero Hill.
Slow & Oak will always strive to provide its community with the most authentic Texas barbecue experience possible. We appreciate all of the support to this point and look forward to having you with us on this unknown adventure ahead.
