Who are the Ugly Brothers?

We are not animals. Though we be ugly, we are beautiful people.
We find inner peace, tranquility and beauty through the art and
practice of slow smoking pig, cow, hen and other beasts....


The Ugly Brothers grew up on a dead-end street in Sierra Madre, California. Our Ugly RootsBonded in ugly delinquency, yet somehow we knew we would have a higher calling. We apprenticed as youngsters, helping the village smoke-men in the Monastery BBQ pits, deep in the San Gabriel (nee Sierra Madre) hills, for the Mater Dolorosa Fiesta. Many beef were sacrificed for these celebrations.

Though the Ugly Brothers compete in California BBQ Association (SCBBQA), Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) sanctioned events, our reward is not the monetary prizes heaped upon us, but rather the knowledge and satisfaction that we have done justice to the beasts sacrificed for our smoke pits.



When the pit calls we must respond.

It is in our nature.
