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. Chef Kareem set out on a journey and 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 has mastered his craft by marrying influences from Egyptian cuisine. Chef Kareem created KG BBQ to bring you BBQ that is cooked with love, passion, and most importantly, with a tasty Mediterranean twist!
