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 generations, a 300 year old method taught by the Spanish Conquistadors most of the herbs and spices came from Sephardic Jews who migrated from Israel to Spain in 1492 when they invaded the Native people of New Mexico and showed the Natives how to raise and butcher hogs. We feel that it's important to share our culture as (Sephardic Native Americans) we believe that preserving our culture, heritage & cuisine is very important to our family, friends, and community.
