These 4 Killeen, Texas Grill Masters Are Making Delicious Noise in the City
Let's be honest: You can't mention Texas without someone thinking of BBQ. Yeah, we've got horses and the Cowboys, but you can't possibly not go immediately to Texas BBQ - one of the best types of barbecue in the world.
Maybe I'm being biased because I'm a Texas native, but you know what, it's my article and I'll do what I want!
Barbecuing in Texas is like a rite of passage. I'm not even trying to be funny for the sake of this article. I can’t remember any videos of me learning how to walk, but I can show you tons of pictures of me with ribs and barbecue sauce all over my face. Now, with great barbecue comes great grill mastering, and here are some grill masters in Killeen who are getting the attention of Central Texas with their grilling skills.
CENTRAL TEXAS IS "JUST COOKING " GREAT FOOD!
J Scott or JR Scott went from amazing rapper to amazing grill master.
I remember watching JScott make certain meals and post them on Facebook, and you can practically smell each meal through the phone! I would say to myself, "This man needs and deserves his own restaurant". well I guess great minds think alike, because the owner and operator of Just Cooking BBQ and More, Mr. J Scott, is making some of the most phenomenal meals you’ve ever tasted.
His fish is always super golden and crisp, his famous Mississippi pot roast is always a crowd pleaser, and let’s not forget about barbecue!
This man makes ribs that literally slide off the bone. His food is absolutely delicious, and if you haven’t tried it you are for sure missing out.
You can find this amazing establishment located at 129 W. Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Harker Heights. I can say from experience that this man has earned his right to be called not only a grill master, but an amazing chef. The city of Killeen and all of Central Texas couldn’t be more proud!
THE ONLY PIT STOP WORTH STOPPING AT!
ARE YOU HUNGRY? WELL COME PULL UP-N-EAT!
When I first told Fabian Jasper that I was doing an article about the grill masters of Central Texas, he made it very clear to me that he didn’t want to necessarily have his picture on the page. He wanted his food to speak for itself. Well, I can tell you that the food he prepares with his brother for sure speaks for itself.
Michael Thomas and Fabian Jasper are natives of Killeen who started their business in 2020, and people can’t get enough of their food! Pull Up -N- Eat is located in Harker Heights at 807 S. and Boulevard. I hear people constantly talk about their barbecue, especially their turkey legs. If you ever get a chance to try them, do exactly what the restaurant says - pull up and eat!
FOOD SO GOOD, IT'S X-RATED
Have you ever tasted food so good that you felt guilty afterward? Like, the food was so delicious that you knew it couldn’t be right? That is Barbecue HUB, which has been making waves in Central Texas.
Antonio Clemons has been grilling for his family and friends for a few years now, and pairs these succulent meats with his wife’s sides. They had an actual grand opening as well, and on the first day open they sold to over 100 people and sold out in less than 3 hours.
Everything that Mr. Clemons makes is fresh each day, and the leftovers are given to the less fortunate. I personally haven’t had a chance to try the food just yet, but it comes highly recommended by everyone I know. Word on the street is if you haven’t had the bacon-wrapped chicken wings, you haven’t had good food yet!
