Jon G’s Pitmaster Garren Kirkman

Jon G’s Barbecue serves Texas barbecue tradition in the small North Carolina town of Peachland, where he’s attracting plenty of big-city attention. Whether it’s Texas Monthly, Southern Living, or the Barbecue Bros, everyone who makes the trek to Jon G’s sings the praises of the brisket, beef ribs, kolaches, and the traditional sides that quickly fill up a barbecue tray with goodness. Find out the story behind Jon G’s, what makes his experience so unique, and why so many Carolina barbecue people say his name when they’re talking about the state’s best smoked meats. In this episode, Pitmaster Garren Kirkman makes his second visit to the Low & Slow Barbecue Show to talk about his business and his Jon G’s Jubilee.
