Established in 2013, the brand was founded by Chief Pitmaster Nazri Jameson. Starting out as a culinary art graduate, Nazri was on a mission to perfecting barbecued halal briskets.

Armed with curiosity, obsession and passion, he spent close to 5 months of finding the right technique and recipe before deciding to make the Beard Brothers' BBQ debut. With the help of his brother-in-law and German friend, Nazri started the business as a home-based setup in Keramat.

The concept of an authentic halal Texas-style barbecue became a hit and after 4 years, the Beard Brothers’ BBQ restaurant was born. From the day it opened its doors, the eatery has seen a stream of meat-loving customers and there’s been no stopping since!

Whether you’re a meat enthusiast or not, there’s no resisting when it comes to the star of Beard Brothers’s BBQ - the barbecued halal briskets. Using Australia-sourced meat, their moist, juicy fall-off-the-bone brisket is achieved through a slow-smoked method that takes up to a whopping 20 hours of prepping and cooking. To put that into perspective, you could fly thrice from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo in that amount of time ?

Using the same labour of love on their other meats such as the pulled lamb, lamb rib slab and beef rib bone, treat your taste buds to delightfully tender cuts with perfect meat-to-fat ratio ?

Then, pair your choice of protein with their tangy homemade sauces like Keramat Spicy BBQ Sauce and Memphis Smoky BBQ Sauce for a flavourful punch. You can further enjoy the richness of barbecued meat by ordering their scrumptious sides as well! Take your pick of Honey Butter Biscuits, Woody Chippy or Mashed Brotatoes among its other add-ons.

As the new spin-offs of Beard Brothers’ BBQ, the food served at these eateries remain faithful to the philosophy of low and slow cooking. Indulge in a hearty bowl of Beef Ramen with broth that’s been cooked for 12 hours or the BB New York Pastrami that uses specially cured meat and housemade sauce ? Whichever spot you choose to hit up, you don’t have to worry about missing out on the heavenly taste of smoked meats!

So, if you decide to drop by Beard Brothers’ BBQ, make sure you come with an appetite that matches the magnificent feast of tantalizing barbecued meats you’re about to have!
