Craft BBQ takes time and expertise. We believe you should be able to enjoy a memorable slow-smoked BBQ experience without having to travel far, or spend all night cooking.

Cali BBQ’s pitmasters have dedicated themselves to the art of live fire cooking. They smoke our craft barbecue overnight in an Ole Hickory Smoker using aromatic California cooking woods.

Order BBQ online for pickup or delivery. You can even buy gift cards to use later on.

We are open everyday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. (or until we sell out!)

Repost: @washcovick

@washcovick With everything that happened last Wednesday in our country, it didn’t feel right to share and promote Thursday’s Behind the Review episode on drop day, but episode 6 featuring @calibbq @calibbqmedia CAN NOT BE MISSED!!! This episode is all about relentless hospitality, and the steps both @shawnpwalchef and @stoveriii were taking BEFORE the pandemic to stay connected with customers digitally. We also talk about how 2020 turned out to be a better year for their restaurant revenue wise than expected.

The episode is live on any platform you can listen to podcasts! Don’t forget to subscribe so you get alerts every Thursday when a new episode drops.

Let us know what you think!
