Real Texas Style BBQ is an art.


Anyone who has ever experienced real Texas Style BBQ will never forget it: super taste, super tender, super juicy. A bite of luck!


Grilling has nothing to do with our Low and slow barbecue. It is the gentle and long-lasting smoking of premium, quality selected meat on indirect heat and at a consistent low temperature. As a source of smoke, we only use hardwood from the area and no other aids.


This requires a lot of experience, the finest ingredients and perfect materials. And above all a Pitmaster who works with feeling and passion. Our high-quality pieces of meat are smoked at a constant temperature all night, for between 14 and 16 hours, so that you can enjoy the finest BBQ during the day. Everything made entirely by hand without a computer or other aids.


Sustainability and products from Switzerland are very important to us - for the sake of our earth. We offer a tasty and wholesome alternative to classic "fast food".

Each piece is lovingly prepared before smoking. The meat is injected and rubbed in to make it even more tasty and juicy.


the sweet and sour:
Apple juice

We inject the meat with freshly squeezed apple juice from the Guldenberg, enriched with fine ingredients. Makes the meat more aromatic and tender, but above all: super juicy!


the secret:

We rub the meat with our homemade organic seasoning mixture. A harmony between sweet, salty and spicy and the main reason for: Supertasty!


the meat is cooked in the smoker for around 15 hours using the low and slow process. the temperature of our pit master is kept at a constant 110 degrees.


The smoky:

Of course, we only use hardwood from the forests around the Guldenberg and thus avoid long transport routes. Super glow!


The heart: Smoker "Beast"

Our smoker was specially made for us by a forge. «Beast» optimally draws the smoke through and ensures the desired temperature for hours. Superbeast!

Production in nature

In addition to the right and good ingredients, a lot of experience and a lot of time, we also need space. The magnificent farm on the Guldenberg high above Embrach offers us the perfect conditions to smoke our meat with a lot of love and passion. We obtain the good wood for our smoker and the apple juice that we inject into the meat before smoking directly from the Guldenberg.

Smoker - The beast

Our smoker - called the Beast - was built in a forge according to our specifications. Handling the smoker has to be learned, because maintaining a constant temperature is not easy and has to be set manually with flaps. That requires a lot of practice and experience.
