Traylor Parker’s Real Texas BBQ is a treasure trove tucked into Big Rock Brewery, where barbecue and beer is a perfect match.

With a legacy that spans generations, this legendary smokehouse comes to Alberta paying homage to Texas’ rich barbecue heritage.

Traylor Parker’s Real Texas BBQ

If something goes better with barbecue than beer, we’ve yet to find it. So, as Big Rock Brewery welcomes Traylor Parker’s Real Texas BBQ to its southeast dining room, Calgary is in for a match made in heaven. Hailing originally from Austin, founder and pitmaster Tex Parker opened his first restaurant in partnership with his wife, Robyn, in Charing Cross, Ont. Now, the couple has set up shop at Big Rock with four 1,000-gallon smokers and a passion for the perfect smoked meat. The lean-but-moist brisket is among the very best we’ve ever had, and we look forward to many more meals at the brewery. Open 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and until 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
