Our Story

Serving great meals since 2007

This all started in the parking lot of a Texans game. Tailgating with friends and family grew into a passion for Real Texas Barbecue, hosting great events and just having nothin' but a good time (how could I resist?!). Taking what my dad taught me on the pit, the smoke kept growing bigger and bigger, the tailgaitng grew into a competition BBQ team, the famous Texas Cyclone Cookers in 2007. More smoke led to Tamale Festival Houston, now a Houston institution. So here we are, on the cusp of our own slow-smoked fairy tale titled Harris County General Store.

Many caterings, weddings, craft brewery pop-ups, parties and loves gained... we're still smokin' and serving our brand of grEAT MEals. We've managed to create a name for ourselves, that our food and service is in the upper tier of real Texas pitmaster qualty barbecue. We're down to Earth, we work hard and we play harder. Contact us Today at catering@hcgsbbq.com and we can tell you how we can make your next event special with the Tastes of Texas for your guests!
