I discovered Michelle and Andrew Muñoz of Moo’s Craft Barbecue almost six years ago. Starting with a pop-up in their San Gabriel Valley backyard, they would have customers lined down the street. Their notoriety eventually caused them to be shut down by the L.A. Health Department, but then they secured a spot at Smorgasburg.

Since then, they’ve been praised by Texas Monthly’s BBQ editor, made the “101 Best Restaurants” list in 2022 and were even recognized by former L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti in their first year at the brick-and-mortar location. Most notably, the couple and co-owners received a James Beard semi-finalist nomination.

See my full conversation with them here:

Boneyard Bistro

Aaron Robins’ Boneyard Bistro was one of the first restaurants to serve Central Texas-style barbecue here in Southern California.

Based in Sherman Oaks for almost 20 years, the restaurant has been on the forefront of smoked meat in the region and has served the Los Angeles Lakers and large corporate events across the city.

Join Andrew and me as we discuss his business, the restaurant, and life beyond the fire.
