style of cuisine-BBQ. He has been working for many years to perfect his rubs and slow cooked process for the

variety of meats offered on his menu. From brisket, to ribs to tri-tip, Worth Ranch is Chef’s take on what he

calls “California BBQ.” Because Worth has sampled BBQ from across the country, from Memphis to the Carolinas,

from Austin to Kansas City, and everywhere in between, he thought it important for his menu to reflect his
