ABOUT US

When we decided to open a BBQ joint years ago, we couldn't decide which kind of "Q" we loved the most... The sticky messy KC style? The Texas style slow-smoked beef brisket that stands on its own? The Memphis style dry rub pork cuts, or the tangy Carolina style? Well, we just decided to offer it all!

 

At Cox Brothers, the feeling is casual, but we’re not casual about the attention we give to our BBQ. We'd be honored to feed you in our restaurant or with one of our catering packages.

Just give us a call, and we promise you'll feel right at home...​

Take a Tour

Meet the Boys

Bud and Bobby Cox have been practicing the
art of true BBQ for most of their lives perfecting their craft over thousands of hours in front of smokers, grills and a campfire or two. 
You can be certain that the BBQ you get at Cox Bros. BBQ will be the most delicious and authentic "Q" you’ve ever tasted.​​

Our Promise

Genuine barbecue is a culinary art form. We have spent a lifetime learning and perfecting this craft. Genuine Cox Bros. BBQ is more than a great meal; it is a celebration of generations of pitmasters and their pursuit of smoked perfection.​

 

Wood Smoked​​

The essence of this art form is the smoke. Pure 225° white smoke is created from close-grain low-sap hardwood. This wood creates the signature coals that produce beautiful perfect smoke. Our wood is hand cut and delivered.​

​​

Smoker​​

We use a genuine wood-fired pit and you can taste the difference. Our rotisserie pit is one of the best pits in the world, as it slowly massages the meat through a blanket of heat for as much as 20 hours.

​​

Quality Meats

Our pitmasters choose tender, juicy, marbled meats that are always fresh and never frozen. We hand rub each cut of meat with a blend of spices. Mixed with the moisture released during smoking, these spices form the flavorful crust on all of our meats.​

​​

Hand Cut & Pulled​​

​In the pursuit of perfection, every detail matters. Beef and turkey are hand-sliced to order, while pork and chicken are hand-pulled for each meal. That’s the way it was done in the original meat markets and that’s how we do it here.

Our Sauces & Seasonings

Original BBQ Sauce

The flavors of Memphis, South Texas, and Kansas City-style BBQ blended into a sauce that's perfect on any of our meats.

KC Sweet Jazz BBQ Sauce

This classic, sweet sauce is great for ribs and chicken.

Texas Sizzle BBQ Sauce

A bold and spicy sauce reminiscent of South Texas that's great for brisket and sausage.

Carolina-Style BBQ Sauce

A robust mustard and cider vinegar-based sauce balanced with cane sugar that brings out the best in pulled pork and whole pit-smoked hogs.

Premium Herb Seasoning

Amazing on a variety of foods including chicken, pork, vegetables, and any kind of seafood.

Creole-Blackening Seasoning

Created by Bud while working offshore in New Orleans, this seasoning is great for any seafood dish.

Taco Seasoning

Used on the shredded chicken machaca at Coco Bolos, the seasoning is perfect for any Mexican dish.

South Texas Rub

Used as an all-purpose seasoning for our 'Q,' this blend of spices was created for Texas-style brisket.

Prime Rib Rub

This coarse, ground spice blend is great for smoking prime rib and for seasoning steaks.
