David Maibaum discovered Texas barbecue during his time in the Air Force while stationed in San Antonio. It was a taste of slow-cooked brisket that inspired him to hone his own BBQ skills and, roughly 20 years later, he went professional. With the help of his wife Cyndi, David now operates 242 Texas BBQ Company. This food trailer brings a little taste of Texas to Jay, VT.
What’s the secret to perfect barbecue? It all comes down to preparation. The meats at 242 Texas are dry-rubbed with homemade sauces and then smoked over low heat for hours. This helps preserve flavor and prevent meat from drying out, leading to cuts so tender you can slice them with a plastic knife. The trailer serves brisket and pulled pork in all forms, from tacos to sandwiches to plates. You also have all your standard sides and then some. While smoked green beans never get old, you can also shake things up with some bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeños. Plus, have some banana pudding for dessert. If you’re looking for a vendor for your next event, book 242 Texas BBQ Company. Guests will love all these smoky meats and sides.
