Barbecue is an 80-year family tradition in the McCray family. It started as Harvey’s Barbecue in West Palm Beach on 7th and Tamarind during segregation. Herman C. McCray Jr., worked at his Uncle Harvey’s place as a young boy and a teenager. But after the place was sold, Big Herman started selling his own barbecue, and from there, the rest – as they say, is history!
