Default Duck Dynasty knife Willie

Long story short (maybe). A friend is the Pitmaster and GM of Dozierís bbq in Fulshear. Last weekend was his annual fundraiser for the local police with 13 of the top BBQ places in Texas. What a great time and amazing food!!
Jim partnered Willie and the Buck Commander team on their new meat, pork and poultry rubs. Willie has gotten into the bbq seen pretty heavy. Had the opportunity to make him a Texas themed knife with spalted pecan and we had a great visit. He was very kind, humble and grateful. Fun stuff!

It sure was! They went through a little slump until a couple of guys came in and bought them then hired Jim - Jim absolutely knows what he's doing! They had a wild game cook off for this deal and it was unreal! He buys top quality beef (Nolan Ryan brisket now...was 44 Farms) and you get what you pay for.

He really has, actually looked healthy. I guess we've all got a little more grey in our beards too so I won't poke fun there!

Thanks. Yes, it really was...seemed like a destination spot back in the late 70's/early 80's. I remember driving out from Alief on some dirt roads to let my grandfather pick out meat when he flew in from Pennsylvania

Nope, took me a few seconds to piece it together when I saw him....impressive transformation

Awesome work as always. If I had your talent I would be dangerous. I haven’t been to Doziers in 40 years but back in the day if I was within 20 miles of there traveling I would make it over there and get jerky for the road. Used to be awesome. Thanks for posting. I see a little road trip in my future.

It has been many moons for me, but Dozierís used to make the jalapeŮo deer sausage for me and my buddy Phil. Some of the beat around.
