It’s been a long road for David & Teresa Welch to open this friendly and intimate dining room and barbecue joint in a tucked-away shopping center just off Kingwood’s main thoroughfare. David is classically trained in French cuisine and paid his culinary dues at the Pappas Restaurant Group and other restaurants in the Kingwood area.
He got bit by the barbecue bug in early 2010s and opened Fire Craft BBQ as a food trailer on land in Kingwood he planned to build on. But the state had different ideas, building a big road extension right in front of the location, causing never-ending construction delays. When a spot became available in a Kingwood shopping center, he and Teresa jumped on it, finally opening a location to showcase David’s substantial culinary and meat-smoking talents.
