A new south-side barbecue restaurant focuses on Carolina-style meats that have been marinated in apple juice and rubbed with brown sugar.

Four Star BBQ opened just after Thanksgiving at 2555 W. Pawnee. and is owned by Kevin Caudell, his wife and his uncle. Caudell was laid off from his job last year and spent his time custom-building his own smoker. He originally thought about opening a food truck to sell his barbecue but then found the space on Pawnee.

The restaurant, which sells Carolina pulled pork, ribs, brisket and more, is small with only two tables and specializes mostly in carry out. It’s open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
