Guess Family Barbecue has led the way for something of a barbecue boom in Waco, as noted by Texas Monthly barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn. Reid Guess set out to make Waco a barbecue destination when he opened his trailer back in 2017. Before even moving Guess to its permanent brick-and-mortar home, he landed his joint a spot on our list of  the Top 25 New Barbecue Joints in Texas in early 2019.  Nowadays, he’s turned his craft into a true art form. Check out the meticulous technique behind his signature smoked chicken wings in this episode of ’Cue Course.
