Our Family has nearly a century old tradition of serving "Serious Barbecue." Andy Sr. learned his labor of love from his dad, ‘Guy Nelson’ - Chief Barbecue Man for Limestone County, Alabama. In the 50’s, Andy & Betty were not only attending Memphis State, raising a family, and sighting the real Elvis, but they were also developing a BBQ style all their own, integrating the spiciness of Memphis BBQ with the Old Nelson Family tradition. Andy’s not famous for his championship years with the Baltimore Colts; he’s famous for his hickory smoked BBQ. Ask Andy and he’ll tell you that one of the secrets is slow cooking. Our BBQ is smoked many hours over Hickory logs until it falls off the bone, then simmered in our own heirloom sauce.
