The story of Saintz BBQ Co.

Retired Lt Col Howard has served in five different decades and is a decorated Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom veteran.  He and Lanessa has served through four deployments to the Middle East. In 2010, Matt found a love for smoking meats and has spent a decade refining his product to bring the best to your plate and has become one of the more popular "People's Champions" in Texas BBQ.  His wife and partner, Lanessa, has equal passion for bringing the best sides to accompany the best smoked meat.  They have made their wood smoked BBQ and signature sides popular in Texas, Ohio, and New Mexico over the past 10 years. Now retired from the Air Force, they are excited to bring over 40 years of cooking experience to your table!

Saintz BBQ Co. is the result of Matt and Lanessa's vision to bring a one-of-a-kind culinary establishment with a menu inspired by the idea of simple and honest cooking.  The evolution of Saintz BBQ began in 2010 and is ready to unleash on the most discerning BBQ connoisseurs in Ozark County and the Bull Shoals Lake area.
