The art of smoking meats for more than 16 hours in apple and white oak wood provided life to his first events at local breweries and catering events.
While making his catering business, it has been highlighted on local press stations as he remains to help Albuquerque’s first responders and front-line health care workers serving up his BBQ to respect their sacrifices.

“Amazing BBQ. I got the 3 meat samplers. The ribs were just fall off the bone, melt in your mouth tender. The brisket was really good and the pulled pork was also delicious. I got the spicy sauce which has a good kick but isn’t melt your face off hot. And a glass bottle coke to wash it all down.” – Jeff
S-A BBQ at Green Jeans Farmery
S-A BBQ at Green Jeans Farmery menu is lean and centered. Just a handful of items, all smoked to perfection. Their housemade sauces and spice rubs aren’t like anything you will find anywhere else. They are created from true NM ingredients, blended to balance out the smokiness of the meat and to add as much kick as you want. Leo and Gabe share a philosophy when it comes to good barbecue, respect the tradition you come from, but make it your own. In the event of S-A, that means a new technique to BBQ.
