a brief note on...

g4tp barbecue

G4TP is here to bring a genuine barbecue experience and wholesome food/services, rooted in more than just delectable flavors and trendy foods. Our barbecue uses all real wood, low, slow, and authentic techniques, non-automated equipment, and we are working to ensure that all of our meats and produce are sourced from places that practice good food principles. We dry brine all of our meats as needed, and NEVER inject them.

G4TP upholds the following principles and practices

good food principles

A just, equitable and sustainable food system is one that provides physical, economic and community health; regenerates, protects, and respects natural resources and animals; and ensures that all people live with dignity and freedom from oppression and exploitation.” - Good Food For All. You can learn more about this here, and hear about G4TP’s journey through these practices soon!

food is political

Our relationship with food, land, and its many systems is political by definition, and G4TP’s work does not shy away from this reality. Whether it be cultural expression, history and identity, the environment, social policy, labor, or other matters, G4TP works to center these issues both in the intention of the food’s preparation and the communal spaces created around it.

for the people every time
all the time

G4TP works to provide accessible, high-quality food and services, with a focus on Black and Brown communities across South LA. We try to work with any dietary needs, price points, or other unique requests that may arise, and do our best to accommodate them within our capacity. Our vision is rooted in equity, resilience, and liberation for all people, and our priorities and practices reflect this.
