I once worked for them so have insight into the operation. They use a gas oven where you can add logs to get the smoke you need for good BBQ. It starts at the meat station where your brisket or other meat is plated. Then you go down the line in cafeteria style to get your sides. They have a good selection of sides then you pay. Good value for what you get. In north Austin this is the place for BBQ

I appreciate your patience in our delayed reply...Thank you for taking the time to comment. Yes Gas, is so much easier that having someone stand there and strike matches to light the fires and it allows us to keep the fire going throughout the night while we smoke the briskets low and slow. You know that we know that there are so many BBQ joints in Austin and the surrounding area so every time someone comments, good, bad or indifferent, we take notice and look forward to seeing and hearing from you again soon.
Please feel free to reach out to us any time. sam@pokejos.com
Again, THANK YOU!
