Crazy Carl's BBQ 

For twenty years, Carl Brakke has brought barbeque to consumers around South Dakota, however, his story comes to us with a Texas twist!

Early in his career, Brakke was introduced to a Texan that had married a South Dakota Girl.  The Texan was in need of a barbeque pit and Brakke obliged.
