In 2004, He proudly open Hank’s Smoked Brisket. “Texas BBQ done right, by a Native Texan.” He constructed the building himself and it also houses a barber shop and beauty salon.
Hank’s carry out restaurant delivers a variety of smoked perfection from brisket, to corn beef, to chicken. “I more than likely perfected it now, but it still gets better,” he said of his brisket, which is smoked 8 to 12 hours over mesquite wood. Determine to keep his BBQ authentic, Hank travels to Texas to purchase his mesquite wood twice a year! During the year – end holidays, Fields, also smokes and sells turkey’s and rib-eye steaks, which he said, “probably are better than the brisket!” So, if you are traveling across country or just in the neighborhood, come in and taste for yourself, we look forward to serving you!
