Backyard Grillerz focuses on the preservation of New Mexican traditional cuisine. New Mexican Bar-B-Q or, La Matanza, is a unique way of butchering hogs that has been passed down through 17 generations, a 300 year old method taught by the Spanish Conquistadors. Most herbs and spices used by the Spanish came from the Iberian peninsula or Sephardic Jews who migrated from Israel to Spain in 1492. The Sephardi from Spain showed the Natives how to raise and butcher hogs. Back Yard Grillerz feels that it's important to share our culture as (Sephardic Native Americans) and we believe that preserving our culture, heritage & cuisine is very important to our family, friends, & community.
