about us

Kareem El-Ghayesh, the founder and pitmaster of KG BBQ, moved to Austin, Texas in 2016 after a long career in finance in Egypt, his home country. His only goal was to learn everything about Texas BBQ.

Since then, he obtained a culinary certificate, gained experience by learning smoking meats from Austin's top pitmasters, and now he is here to bring you BBQ that is cooked with love, passion, and most importantly, with a tasty Mediterranean twist!

Happy Customers are What Keep Us Going!

"Kareem was amazing! He helped me plan out the most perfect catering experience for my best friends bachelorette party - he and his wonderful wife dropped off and set up all of the food. We had the most wonderful feast. I wish they lived in NY I would have them cater all of my parties !! Thank you so much for making our first Texas BBQ experience very memorable !!"
