Zavala’s Barbecue Distribution, sponsored by Lone Star Brewing, announced its Backyard BBQ Box, a monthly subscription that features products from some of the best barbecue joints in Texas. The boxes, which are available for nationwide shipping, will include an ever-changing array of high-quality barbecue products, exclusive recipes, tips and tricks, access to educational cooking videos and an exclusive Q&A session with the featured pitmasters each month. The first box ships out July 1st.

Zavala’s Barbecue, owned by Joe Zavala, has made a name for itself over the past few years. Joe, a backyard barbecue enthusiast, built the restaurant organically. What started as a backyard hangout grew into a brick and mortar restaurant that made Texas Monthly’s 50 Best BBQ Joints list in 2021 and was featured on season 3 of Netflix’s Taco Chronicles Cross the Border for its brisket taco. 

Joe started collecting products from some of his favorite barbecue joints throughout Texas and opened a “BBQ Speakeasy” in the back of the Mas Coffee Co. shop in Grand Prairie, TX, a place where they could ship and sell some of the best rubs, seasonings and sauces from their fellow BBQ aficionados. The Backyard BBQ Box is the next evolution in bringing the best flavors and products to the people.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Lone Star Beer,” says Zavala’s Barbecue Owner Joe Zavala. “We’ll be visiting our friends’ backyards, who are the best pitmasters in the world, to learn how they cook. We can’t wait to bring their Texas BBQ rubs & sauces right to doorsteps all over the world.”

The Backyard BBQ Box is available in one, three, and 12-month subscription options. Each month, the box will feature a different rotation of best-known, award-winning products, as well as some items from up-and-coming BBQ joints, which will be announced a few weeks before shipping. The first month’s box will include products from Blood Bros. BBQ, which has received praise in the New York Times and Texas Monthly.

Lone Star Beer, as a lover of good times and good food, has partnered with Zavala’s as the official beer sponsor of the Backyard BBQ Box. The Zavala’s Barbecue team have been long-time fans of Lone Star Beer and they are thrilled to collaborate with such an established Texas brand. In addition to the sauces, seasonings, and educational content, each box will include exclusive Lone Star Beer merchandise.

“We are really excited about this partnership that we’ve formed with Zavala’s Barbecue Distribution,” adds Lone Star Brand Director Brandon Kieffer. “We view this as a unique way to help support pitmasters across the state and look forward to helping bring their products to new neighborhoods and backyards. Plus, the only thing that can make Texas BBQ better is an ice cold Lone Star beer to wash it down, so this felt like a very natural collaboration.”
