Rejino Barbeque

Photograph by Daniel Vaughn

Aaron and Christina Rejino are serving quality smoked meats and novel side dishes worthy of the short road trip from Lubbock—or the longer road trip if you’re coming from pretty much anyplace else. By the time we pulled up to their truck on a particularly idyllic Saturday, the Rejinos were just about wrapping up for the day, though a few patrons lingered, playing cornhole on the turfed patio. We managed to score brisket with a perfect bark, juicy smoked chicken, and a bounty of well-crafted sides, such as brisket-flecked pinto beans and green-chile corn. And, yes, we sneaked bites of the creamy banana pudding while driving to our next barbecue destination.


Method: Oak; offset smoker

Pitmaster: Aaron Rejino, 32

Pro-tip: Preorder your ’cue online (before 9 a.m. the day of) so your trip to Olton doesn’t end in heartbreak.
