Our Team

JL's Lone Star BBQ began as Joe Hodges started BBQing for friends, family, and the Boy Scouts of Troop 507 and thier families. Then it developed into a family owned and operated BBQ restaurant in Murphy, NC where Jason Hodges was taught to BBQ.

Since the restaurant closed in 1994 the passion has lived on. Joe and Jason continue to cook for friends and family. Jason has began cooking in competitive BBQ events with friends in 2014, and placed 2nd in pulled pork in the Montgomery County Fair Barbeque Cook Off. Joe, not to be out done by his son, took 1st place for brisket at the First Baptist Church Willis Roundup cook off.

BBQ is a passion for them and we will see where the venture will take them in the future.
