The NTX BBQ Team: Michael w/Ruby, Baleigh w/Leo & Roman w/Gino
Story Behind NTX BBQ Supply.
Michael always had a passion for cooking. When he was 9 years old, he would cook the whole family breakfast with omelets being his specialty. During the 20 years he lived in Central Texas, he attended BBQ competitions at the Austin, San Antonio & Houston rodeos. Most of these competition trips were to see his buddy, Carlo Casanova, compete and win. Michael also made frequent visits to Lockhart, Luling, Saltlick & the Original Rudy’s to name a few.
In the summer 2016, Michael played golf with a guy that spent the whole day talking about all the reasons why he loves his new Pellet Grill. After hearing his fanatic like passion, Michael started considering this as a viable business opportunity. He first went around to local grill stores like Home Depot and Academy to assess the customer experience. He found little service was given & staff members had minimal product knowledge. He realized that people do need help deciding the best grill or smoker for their individual needs. Michael did product research & decided that Green Mountain Grills are the best valued pellet grill on the market. he also felt their local dealer business model was perfect for downtown Denison, TX!
Carlo Cassanova - Pro Pitmaster & featured on Food Network's Chopped: GrillMasters
Michael called up his competition buddy, Carlo, getting many product recommendations including Kosmos, Meat Church, Talk Texan, GrillGrates, Pitts & Spitts, PK Grills, Fogo Charcoal, Maverick thermometers & BBQr’s Delight Pellets. It made sense to use the same rubs, sauces, injections, cooking tools, products & techniques used by top competitors. With all this…..NTX BBQ Supply was born!
What Michael loves best about his business is thinking about all the great food customers are making on a weekend, holiday or on any given day.
