This week on A Chef’s Story, Dorothy Cann Hamilton is Joined by Jonathan and Justin Fox, owners of Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q in Atlanta. After growing up with Texas barbecue, the Fox brothers were underwhelmed by the Atlantan barbecue after moving there in 1998. So they decided to take matters into their own hands and learn to cook barbecue themselves. In 2007, they opened the Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q restaurant. Now they are incredibly successful and are cooking up to 3000 lbs of meat in their kitchen at any given time. On today’s show, the Fox Bros. discuss what inspired them to learn to cook barbecue, how they choose what meats to cook in their restaurant, and the cooking process that makes their meat delicious enough to make them runners up for the title “Best Overall Bar-B-Q” In Atlanta.

“[Brisket usually has] more fat and connected tissue. And when you slow cook it for long periods of time it’s usually going to make it a lot more tender.” [21:00]
“We want to make sure that when you come in at dinner, you’re getting the fresh stuff. And when you come in at lunch, you’re getting the fresh stuff.” [23:00]
