In the beginning God made meat. The next day he built a smoker.
Philip is a New Orlean native who knew early on that the 9-5 grind was too short a day for him. His love for food comes from his mother's homemade Brazilian cookin' and his dad's mastery of the Weber. In his free time, he enjoys shopping at Costco.
Ronnie grew up on the historic Westbank of New Orleans where his parents, Ronnie and Patsy, are still patiently waiting for him to uproot from the family home. His passion for cooking and eating can be directly attributed to the conveniently located culinary hubs of Popeye's Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, and the Beef Connection. Some of Ronnie's favorite foods include Red Beans and Rice, White Beans and Rice, and Black Beans and Rice.
Shannon Bingham is the pit master at Blue Oak BBQ. Shannon has tried barbecue in Texas, met Aaron Franklin twice, and has a Yelp! account, therefore knows more about barbecue than pretty much anyone. Shannon came on board with Blue Oak in 2016, manages the kitchen, and helps Phil and Ronnie develop really awesome/cool new recipes and specials.
