About Thomas Abramowicz

Thomas, originally from Paris, left the “City of Lights” for the bright lights of New York City’s “Big Apple” to advance his marketing career. It was there that his appetite for authentic American style barbecue was fueled. New York had awoken the beast inside him and soon thereafter he left the glitz and glamour in New York for the sweet smell of barbecue cooked low and slow over a natural hardwood fire. His quest for knowledge, of all things barbecue, led him to Texas the Mecca of beef brisket. Texas brisket is cooked according to traditions that have survived through generations of stewardship. He worked under the tutelage of the great pitmaster Wayne Mueller of Taylor Texas and conferred with other notable barbecue legends to perfect his craft. Soon thereafter, he returned to Paris with the knowledge and determination to share his passion for MEAT, cooked over a hardwood FIRE, for just the right amount of TIME, in his custom made stick burner aptly named “The BEAST”
