BBQ Interview Series - Kevin's BBQ Joints

In this episode I chat with Bill Dumas and Kelly Evers from Creekside Cookers BBQ & Steakhouse in Wimberley, Texas. The interview begins with some background information(extremely interesting) on Bill going from growing up in the barbecue world to eventually being a big part of it with employment at Smokey Denmark's to Stiles Switch and The Switch before joining forces with Kelly. In the middle of this interview we learn all about Creekside Cookers BBQ & Smokehouse, from the ideal location to the fact they will be serving traditional BBQ for lunch and morph into a prime steakhouse(that also serves barbecue) in the evening. You will want to visit. We end with Bill going over the extension lunch and dinner menu and talking more about his recent travels to Australia to cook central Texas style BBQ. It's a really great interview that I know you will enjoy.See all things Creekside Cookers BBQ & Steakhouse here: https://creeksidecookers.comCreekside Cookers on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/creeksidecookersbbqFollow Bill Dumas on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/saustin151Creekside Cookers on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/creeksidecookersbbq/Texas Hatters: https://www.texashatters.comMAKA Leathergoods: https://maka.com.au
