Mark Black, co-owner and son of Terry Black, told KWTX the new project is a “family affair and we are really excited about it.”

The restaurant smokes more than 4,000 pounds of meat a day, but Black believes they produce “quality 7 days a week.”

The family will also be opening a new restaurant called Opal’s Oysters, which is named after Terry Black’s mother-in-law.

Opal’s oysters will feature seafood and cocktails that will have a “high-end dining experience.”

Overall, the project costed over $10 million but the family is certain their investment will be worth it.

The Black family hopes to open the new BBQ spot in February 2024 pending good weather and no construction delays.
