Dayne's Craft Barbecue began in January of 2018 as "Dayne's Underground Barbecue" at the request of neighbors, friends, and family that wanted the juicy greatness of Dayne's briskets in their own homes. At their first sale, they made 2 briskets, 2 pulled pork butts, and a rack of ribs on an all-wood offset smoker.

They were immediately bombarded with demands for another sale. 

*Check out the feedback the The Dallas Observer had on their next front yard shindig here.

His "hobby" developed into a passionate pursuit overnight, something Texas Monthly noticed and mentioned in this article

Ashley also noticed the change in his attitude and the light in his eyes when he was behind his smoker, and has encouraged him to push barbecue ever since. 

Dayne smokes the meat and takes on advertising; Ashley cooks the sides and handles the finances. The teamwork dynamic they have created  as a result is a force to be reckoned with.


"We need your support!"

We have loved every minute of serving the people of Fort Worth this last year! We are very proud of our products, including:

  • 44 Farms Brisket
  • Duroc Spare Ribs
  • "Bacon Brisket"
  • Pulled Pork
  • Half-Chickens
  • Handmade Sausage
  • Pork-Belly Burnt Ends
  • Beef Ribs
  • Loaded Red Potato Salad
  • Creamy Mac n' Cheese
  • Flamin  Hot Street Corn
  • Texas Dill Slaw
  • Burnt Ends Beans

...& we're always trying new things!

However, like any dream that is actively pursued...we are growing.

Dayne's Craft Barbecue stands by our code of ethics: we promise to always provide the best quality meat, cooked the best possible way, and we will NEVER compromise quality.

With the growing demand for our food, we have reached maximum capacity on how much we are able to produce. Together we reached the decision that it's time for us to direct all of our energy, focus, and finances to Dayne's Craft Barbecue. 

By the end of 2019, we would like to have claimed our stake as a reputable Texas barbecue spot. 

The goal is to have a stable schedule operating from a permanent location in Fort Worth. This will require many expensive additions to our set-up, including:

  • An industrial-sized warmer
  • An industrial-sized refrigerator
  • A deep freezer/walk-in
  • A reliable food trailer for catering
  • A commercial prep area
  • A staff of knowledgeable, experienced employees
  • Durable, high quality knives and cutting boards
  • Multiple permits & licenses....

You get the idea.

The base cost to open and successfully run a food trailer starts at $50,000. We are hoping to get enough people on board with us to help us come up with $10,000 to get the ball rolling on deposits and much-needed equipment purchases.

We have been dependent on our loyal fans and followers to get this far in our journey, and this time is no different. We need you!!! Please share with anyone you think may be interested in helping us reach our goal.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we face at the moment is reaching enough people to make our goal of $10,000 in 45 days.
We are capable of making this work with the resources we currently already have, but a food trailer would make it much easier to 1) bring our equipment and materials into one common, permanent location and 2) enable us to "bounce back" from our cooks quicker by having everything we need at out fingertips.
We need our Kickstarter to be shared and easily discoverable for this to work.

We are determined to pursue craft barbecue one way or the other, but we're sincerely counting on others coming together to help make our dream a swifter reality.
