In 2003, brothers Sammy and Marvin Young began selling slow-smoked meats from street corners to honor the memory and home-cooked recipes of their mother, Sadie. They insisted on smoking the meats in a 16-foot wood pit smoker instead of with gas or incense sticks, maximizing the flavor and tenderness of each sandwich and plate they served. This dedication to slow, old-fashioned barbecuing helped them gain a loyal following of foodies, who praised the brothers for their juicy brisket, succulent turkey legs, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Thanks to their initial success, the duo's business has grown and now boasts a state-of-the-art food truck, which delivers smoky meats and comforting Southern sides and desserts to business lunchers and catered events throughout the Carolinas.
