Meet Uncle Budsy
Uncle Budsy’s Barbecue has its roots based in Texas going back to 1964. Baptiste Aidoo, the original Uncle Budsy cooked great tasting BBQ for customers in Dallas for over 45 years. Uncle Budsy’s “Lip Smackin’ Good BBQ Sauce, Rubs and Meats” with 16 herbs and spices creates “The Secrets of Jamaica”. Uncle Budsy was a true Pit Master passing on his Secret Sauce and Rub recipe to our Founder, Michael. Now you can enjoy the great taste of Uncle Budsy’s here in Portland and soon in Las Vegas.

Mike is our head honcho and learned the art of smoking meats from the original Uncle Budsy, who has since passed away after being a Pit Master for over 50 years in Texas. Mike started in BBQ stoking the pit and preparing meats when he was 14. Uncle Budsy passed on his signature Texas style Rubs and Sauces to Michael and we now call him Uncle Budsy 2.0.

J. L. Peterson
JP or as we like to refer to him, “Chef Budsy,” is a native of Tuskegee, Alabama but has lived on and off in Portland most of his life. His roots come from an Alabama family of great cooks and restaurant owners, who influenced him with unbelievable food on trips down south as a child. Many of his aunts and uncles taught him from an early age the secrets to the best low country, southern cooking imaginable!
He has used these secrets and developed his talents to become a corporate catering specialist. His desire is to blend his traditional authentic regional southern recipes with flavors of the world that he has experienced through international travels. The fusion of Caribbean, Asian, or Mexican cuisines influence and inspire his recipes. His emphasis is on spices that add that Zing and provide a unique flavor profile and experience for your taste buds leaving you craving more.
His experience includes catering for signature events like the Sip Wine Festival in McMinnville, the Pendleton Roundup, the Salem Bite Festival, the Summer Zoo Concerts, the Cathedral Park Jazz Festival, the Astoria Crab Festival, the Soul’d Out Music Festival and the Waterfront Blues Festival over the last twenty years with Porters Catering, H&H BBQ and Southern Grill Catering.
Peterson is also passionate about combining Cannabis and its proven health effects with the exploding cuisine of authentic Southern Soul Food, for a healthy dining experience like no other!
Public consumption of cannabis is currently illegal in Oregon. However, we do anticipate this to change with additional legislation.
Because of the current restrictions, we are prohibited to legally sell or provide any infused sauces or edibles in our restaurant or food truck. However, it is legal to provide a private, invitation only infused dinner at a private event for persons 21+ in age.
