We have a small crew of 11 people that makes this crazy bbq life work every week. We are also blessed to have a multitude of family and friends (that we consider family) who volunteer their time every weekend to help out.
God has blessed us with many amazing people that support what we are doing, and we are very grateful to each and every one of you. Without God on our side, none of this would be possible!
Dayne Weaver started his journey in Texas barbecue as a backyard smoker enthusiast. His father-in-law left a small kettle grill in his backyard in 2017, which Weaver converted into a mini-smoker. He threw a brisket on and was immediately hooked. He began smoking meat every weekend; however, barbecuing is an expensive hobby. Weaver’s wife, Ashley, told him that if he was going to continue to cook regularly, he needed to find someone to buy it. That’s how “Dayne’s Underground Barbecue” was born.
Weaver posted on social media that he would be selling meats and sides from his front yard, and the response was overwhelming- he sold out in less than an hour. Weaver decided to hold an underground barbecue sale the last Sunday of every month. The crowd continued to grow and bring people from all over the state of Texas who wanted great barbecue- including a reporter and photographer from the Dallas Observer. Once an article was released singing Weaver’s praises, Ashley knew that Weaver had to register his business. Encouraged by his wife, he named the brand Dayne’s Craft Barbecue. The duo held pop-ups all over D/FW, which led them to becoming a staple at Lola's Trailer Park & Saloon (a music venue in the heart of Fort Worth) for two years as they continued establishing their brand.
Now in 2023, they are in the process of opening their first brick-and-mortar restaurant in west Fort Worth.
To have Dayne's Craft Barbecue be a staple destination in Fort Worth, TX.
We strive to make our city proud by doing Texas Barbecue the right way. That means we use only prime meat cuts, and 100% Post Oak and Pecan Wood strictly on our offset smokers. We take a very time-consuming, detail-oriented approach in making sure we are producing the most aesthetically flavorful product possible. That's what we mean when we refer to it as our craft.
We aren't promising complete and total perfection- we're promising to always give every cook everything we got. Come see for yourself what we're serving up our beloved city of Fort Worth.
