“I’ve been cooking for the last 35 years and I’m the owner of Fat & Skinny BBQ. My homeboy and I developed a hybrid concept where he does garage work on cars and I cook – 7 years ago we mostly served the people who came and fix their car but today more people are stopping by for my ribs! it’s a starting step as I’ve been saving to eventually build a full BBQ restaurant.

I don’t only cook meat, I actually started cooking out of curiosity – I spent hours in my house perfecting the craft before I decided I wanted to sell food to the public. I can do great salads, habachi rice and all from scratch. I love BBQ because of its nice taste and the slow cooking on charcoal and wood and the fact that it’s something everyone loves and does during most of the holidays!”
