The basics: What started out as a pop-up between brothers Robin and Terry Wong (Glitter Karaoke) and best friend/chief smoker Quy Hoang has turned into a long-lasting barbecue love affair. These blood brothers opened their brick-and-mortar location in Bellaire in 2018, taking inspiration from their Chinese and Vietnamese roots to create next-gen, outside-the-box barbecue that challenges everything you thought you knew about smoked cuisine. Today, they’ve got another spot in Vegas and a James Beard nom for pitmaster Quy under their belt. Try the inventive specials like Brisket Burnt End Steamed Buns, Gochujang Glazed Pork Ribs, Smoked Turkey Banh Mi, and Thit Nuong Pork Belly.
What the pitmasters say: “Pitmaster Quy and the Wong brothers gave a voice to grossly underrepresented minorities in BBQ and allowed those cultures to shine. They have received many important and well deserved accolades in the process. Quy being James Beard nominated proves this.” - Joseph Quellar, JQ’s Tex Mex BBQ
“I could eat green curry boudin balls at Blood Bros. week-in, week-out and die happy.” - Vince Boisaubin, Feges BBQ
“All three have flavorful and out the box product offerings that distinguish these joints in their own right as doing BBQ uniquely and consistently. Not only is their BBQ awesome, but the pitmasters are also as well! We are honored to be in their company!” (On Blood Bros., Feges, and Gatlin’s) - Karen Fain, Fainmous BBQ
