"Stubb" was born Christopher B. Stubblefield in Navasota, Texas, as one of nine sons from parents he describes as "real good cooks." In the 1930's, Stubb's family moved to Lubbock, Texas and Stubb learned to cook by working in local restaurants and hotels. Stubb left Lubbock to serve in the Korean War as Staff Sergeant in the 96th Field Artillery, the last all-black Army infantry, where he was a gunner and a respected leader. Stubb used this time to perfect his culinary skills by overseeing the preparation of daily meals for as many as 10,000 soldiers. During this time, Stubb also provided the men with entertainment, becoming a self-styled disc jockey by playing music over the field radio for his buddies in the trenches. After he returned, Stubb eventually opened his first restaurant in Lubbock in 1968, across from the county fairgrounds. He made his first barbeque in the hickory pit behind his place and filled the jukebox with vintage blues music. It was here that Stubb's Legendary Bar-B-Q was born. In the 1970's, Stubb's restaurant became the heart of an explosive music scene and was ground zero for musicians like Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Other famous musicians who would "play for their supper" included Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon, Tom T. Hall, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Robert Cray, George Thorogood, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Linda Rondstadt and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Stubb then moved to Austin, Texas where he opened a Bar-B-Q joint and continued the tradition of good music and good Bar-B-Q. After changing locations several times, Stubb's was opened at its current location at 801 Red River in May of 1996. Stubb's BBQ serves up good food and live music over three hundred days a year and if you're too far away to stop by you can always buy the sauce and fixin's at your local grocery store.
