Lewis Barbecue

Lewis Barbecue - Front

Pitmaster John Lewis will bring his signature Texas barbecue to Charleston, SC, as he opens Lewis Barbecue in the city’s emerging Upper Peninsula.

Before moving to the Holy City, John lived in Austin, TX, where he oversaw the award-winning BBQ program at La Barbecue and helped open Franklin Barbecue, establishing himself as one of the best in the business.

John welds his own custom-designed smokers to create expertly smoked pork spareribs, beef ribs, “Texas Hot Guts” Sausage, and his legendary beef brisket.
