How we started
In 2015, the TV show idea was born thru the courtesy of DJ Rick from Fishbowl Radio Network. His vision was to bring light to the marvelous Texas BBQ scene in the Dallas/ Ft Worth area. There are over 317 BBQ restaurants in the DFW metroplex , and that doesn't even count the grill stands, food trucks, and countless snack bars on the outskirts of town.
