TFP BBQ Ep. 59 - Reveille BBQ Interview

June 25, 2018
Reveille Barbecue Co. is a newcomer to the barbecue scene in Texas. Currently 
operating out of a trailer in Magnolia (a suburb north of Houston), Reveille was started 
by co-owners/pitmasters James McFarland and Michael Michna. 
James began chasing his BBQ dreams a few years ago and quickly built a resumé working at The Pit Room and Tejas Chocolate and Barbecue. Michael had a passion for cooking barbecue dating back to his days in the armed services and continuing into his career as a firefighter. The two met and became friends years ago and began making barbecue for cookoffs and special events.

After several years of dreaming about opening a business, the dream began to become a reality in 2017. With a lot of hard work, planning, encouragement from friends and family, and the purchase of a custom built reverse flow smoker built by Arnis Robbins of the acclaimed Evie Mae's Pit Barbeque, Reveille became a reality.

Reveille opened in May of 2018 serving strong representations of many of the smoked meat staples along with non-standard sides such as blistered shishito peppers and a version of Mexican street corn with a Texas spin. Currently open Saturday and Sunday starting at 11 am with plans for expanded hours in the coming months, the future is bright for Reveille Barbecue Co.
