We met in culinary school in 2004. We both came from rural backgrounds where our closely-knit family lifestyle engrained deep-rooted traditions in us. We got together in early 2008 and formed Cathead's BBQ. In 2012 we took over a San Francisco BBQ landmark, Big Nate’s BBQ and got married later that year. Besides doing what we love to do, our goal is to keep those deep-rooted traditions, recipes, and ideas from our families and youth alive.
