Who we are
Kale Thome and Travail Collective are proud to introduce Minnesota Barbecue Company. Located at 816 Lowry Avenue in Northeast Minneapolis, this take-out craft barbecue restaurant is a collaboration between Thome, longtime chef de cuisine at Travail, and Travail co-founders Mike Brown, James Winberg, and Bob Gerken.
“I grew up in Wichita, Kansas, where barbecue is a way of life,” says Thome. “At this point in my career, I’m excited to go back to my roots and use the abundance of wonderful local products to bring my brand of Minnesota craft barbecue to the neighborhood.”
