Chris Salone, the Owner and Pit Master of Last Supper BBQ Smoker, was born and raised on the Southside of Fort Worth, TX, where he is currently a sergeant with the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office.
Chris Salone stated, “All of the men in my family can cook. My father taught me how to barbecue as a little boy.” He began cooking for his family and police officer buddies when he ventured into the law enforcement cook-out competition fundraisers to create funds for Christmas gifts for the less fortunate and inmates’ children. He found participating in these competitions to be rewarding, yet extremely expensive. After competing for years, he thought he could make extra money by purchasing a food truck to sell his delicious award-winning barbecue to his community.
He stated, “The name Last Supper BBQ Smoker came from a conversation I had with a friend and as I thought about a name for my business, I wanted my food to be so delicious that someone would select it as his or her last supper. And the name was born.”
“My grand opening was on Berry and I-35 in the parking lot of Franklin Electric and Supply, close to downtown Fort Worth in 2014. My family rolled up their sleeves and helped. The community and my officer friends showed up and supported me. We sold out fast. It was a success, and we’ve been thriving ever since.”
“This allows me to build a rapport with the community. As a police officer, I see people at their worst, but this allows me to see people differently. I love to serve and engage with people. I believe everything we do in this world is about relationships. Relationships can make you or break you. My mission is to provide a good, consistent product as I serve in another capacity,” Chris stated.
The Last Supper BBQ makes tender barbecue that melts in your mouth. Many individuals are unfamiliar with the distinction between grilling and smoking meat. Grilling is hot and rapid, whereas barbecuing is slow. Instead, the pit master uses oak, hickory or mesquite hardwoods to slow cook the barbecue for up to 12 hours.
It’s been a full-fledged sprint, with catering contracts signed and finger-licking barbecue selling out on the weekends. They are certified, insured, and permitted to sell; therefore, they are bringing the much-needed delight of excellent BBQ to everyone in DFW. The Last Supper BBQ Truck can be found at homeowner association meetings, church events, weddings, birthday parties, and weddings. They also donate food to a prison ministry in the DFW area.
They can provide full-service catering, to-go meals, and food prep.
