Barbecue restaurants have long been an American favorite, but the best styles and cooking methods for BBQ are still up for debate and decided only by one’s personal preference. At Windy City Pizza and BBQ, we love Texas ‘Q and undergo a rigorous process to ensure that every bite is near perfection. Of course Texas BBQ is our favorite, but just in case you’re curious about the differences between other barbecue styles out there, we’ve compiled a quick summary of the main four barbecue styles.

Windy City Pizza and BBQ Knows Good Texas Smokehouse BBQ
There’s nothing like some lip-smacking, “knuckle suckin’ good” Texas ‘Q to hit the spot! Perfectly tenderized ribs, succulent pieces of fresh, savory chicken; seasoned pork shoulder, flavorful pork ribs – they’re all crowd pleasers and worth a road trip across town. But have you ever been to a restaurant where the picture looked better than the food tasted? Have you ever psyched yourself up for a flavorful mouthful of BBQ goodness, only to experience the sad reality of a flavorless, dry entree? There’s nothing so disappointing as a mediocre meal, especially when time and money are involved.
That’s why we take food seriously at our San Mateo barbecue restaurant. We want patrons leaving with bellies full, spirits high and smiles from ear-to-ear — and it’s our food that makes it happen.
It starts with smoke. If there is no smoke there is no BBQ! People tend to confuse smoking with grilling, but in order to BBQ the way it’s supposed to be done, you need to smoke meat low and slow for 180 – 250 degrees and let it cook from from 2 – 18 hours, depending on the item. Basically, we do BBQ the genuine way; no shortcuts, no missing steps, and we prepare the food the way it’s meant to be done.
To deliver top-notch quality, we created a customized, Texas-built BBQ pit that can smoke up to 1,000 pounds of deliciousness. 100% post oak flavor is found in every bite and the only heat source to cook the meat is the indirect use of smoldering smoke. Our technical yet artistic approach to preparing meat produces the same amazing result each time! There’s an explosion of flavor in every bite, and you’ll probably want to order some BBQ delivery or carryout so the food party follows you home.
