Jack’s BBQ

The Best Central Texas Barbecue in Seattle!

Jack’s BBQ is based on the BBQ style started in butcher shops in Central Texas in the late 1800’s. Beef and pork with a simple salt and pepper rub, smoked low and slow over hardwoods (post oak, mesquite, hickory), and served on butcher paper.  Sauce is optional (sometimes not even served in Central Texas), along with pickles and white bread.

Uno de Mayo Auction!

Jack’s BBQ is a proud supporter of the Yucatan Education Project – a non-profit organization supporting the vocational education of Isla Mujeres and Yucatan youth so that they can have meaningful, financially viable careers.

On May 1st, 2019 (or as we call it here ‘Uno de Mayo’), Jack’s BBQ will be holding a dinner auction event at our SoDo location to raise money to support this worthy cause. Our MC for the evening will be  Enrique Cerna – a veteran journalist who has worked in Seattle media for more than four decades.  

Cerna worked for 23 years at KCTS 9 and retired in February, 2018 from his role as senior correspondent. He anchored current affairs programs, moderated statewide political debates, interviewed major newsmakers, produced and reported stories throughout Washington State and for national PBS programs

In June, 2013, he was inducted into the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Northwest Chapter’s Silver Circle for his work as a television professional.

In addition, there will be a live auction which will include fabulous items such as:

  • A vacation package to Isla Mujeres, Mexico
  • BBQ Class and Training for 8 at Jack’s BBQ
  • A copious amount of beer from Georgetown Brewery

Tickets are $100 each and include both dinner and drinks and can be ordered using the link below. Join us for a great evening of food, fun and laughter starting at 6 p.m. while supporting this great cause!
