Owlbear Barbecue Top 100

Perfection is the elusive goal of every pitmaster cooking meat over wood, tweaking techniques and recipes until the ideal brisket emerges from the smoker encrusted in mahogany bark and dripping with fat. Owlbear founder Karl Fallenius has put it all together at the smokehouse he opened in 2019, where pork, beef, turkey and even burgers attain barbecue transcendence with equal parts oak and patience.
