Our mission is to create an authentic barbecue experience that blends the culture, techniques, and flavors of Central Texas with the regional influences of Central Virginia.
Native Texan, and self-taught pitmaster, Chris Fultz was born near the epicenter of Central Texas barbecue. Trained as an architect and transplanted to Virginia, he was inspired to learn the craft of smoking meat. In 2011 Chris met his pitmistress Alex Graf.
They discovered that the universal language of barbecue appealed to their passion to create, and to share that creation with friends and family. That inspiration quickly grew into an obsession to produce perfectly smoked meats and delicious sides. Together in 2013 they founded ZZQ Texas Craft Barbeque.
