I have to be honest, I was a little hesitant to try this restaurant because of my insane love of BBQ and the fact that I knew one of the owners was a vegetarian.

I have heard nothing but good things about MEAT though, so we were in the neighborhood and starving, so what better to fill a hungry belly than with BBQ?

I am a Certified BBQ judge for Kansas City BBQ Society, so I am no expert on BBQ but I have a good palate for competition fare.  I badly wanted to be impressed by the smoky, tender quality of the Texas style BBQ at MEAT.



In January of 1999, George Siu and Park Hffelfinger of Vancouver food scene fame, had a stopover in Memphis while flying home from New Orleans. Lunch was a pulled pork sandwich, and it was love at first bite.

Since then they have attended BBQ competitions and done their research. They were able to reproduce the recipes at home, and decided to bring authentic Southern BBQ to Canada.


Firstly, I must apologize to my followers, I have been away for a while now due to illness.  Things are slowly coming back to normal again, and I am ready to get back to where my passion lies; the Edmonton food community!

Since I got my shiny new KCBS BBQ Judge badge, I thought I would put it to good use in the community and try out my newly trained tastebuds.  Please join me in my BBQ Roundup!
