Growing up in Texas, Jonathan and Justin Fox were inspired by the open sky, the Texas heat and the southern spice. With no professional training, the self-taught, identical twins developed a passion for cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until he moved to Atlanta in early 1998, that Jonathan became more serious about cooking; Justin followed shortly in 2000.
After scouring Atlanta for the perfect barbecue joint, the brothers decided to take matters into their own hands. Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q started as a friendly backyard gathering with plenty of friends eating good barbecue and listening to live music. The backyard get-together turned into cooking for over 250 people. In 2004 the brothers were introduced to Dan & Beau Nolen, and Mike Reeves of Smith's Olde Bar. The Fox brothers went from barbecuing in the backyard, to cooking seven days a week at Smith's and catering various events all over town. In 2005 Jonathan was laid off from his corporate job. This was far from a setback, as catering, alone, had become a full-time job. While serving at Smith's Olde Bar, the Fox brothers began to receive a lot of local press. They were even announced as runner up for "Best Overall Bar-B-Q” in the city of Atlanta, by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. With continuing success at SmithÂ's Olde Bar, the brothers teamed up with Reeves and the Nolen's to take the barbecue business to the next level.
