About Us

The art of barbecue

Located inside the historic Sonoma Cheese Factory, The Butcherman offers smoked meats and sandwiches to-go as well as catering for your special event.

Our meats are carefully prepared, expertly smoked, and undeniably delicious. The variety we offer is unmatched by typical barbecue joints—ham, bacon, charcuterie, turkey, fish, lamb, stuffed sausages, duck, and more—adding to the traditional favorites of spare ribs, brisket, and pulled pork.

Our Barbecue Master

Executive Chef Oscar

Oscar has always had a passion for cooking. Growing up in Mexico City, he got his start by making quesadillas for his family as a young child, which eventually led to culinary school, before he ultimately migrated to the Bay Area and immersed himself in California culture and cuisine.

While living in Napa Valley, Oscar worked his way up from washing dishes to prepping food to ultimately becoming head butcher at the French Laundry, Thomas Keller’s world-renowned restaurant, where he learned fine dining techniques.

Then the pandemic hit, and like many others in the restaurant industry, Oscar found himself without work. But it was during this time that he began barbecuing as a hobby in his backyard, discovering a natural talent for smoking meats.

Now, as Executive Chef of The Butcherman, Oscar combines his fine dining skills with a passion for barbecue to offer a truly versatile smokehouse experience.
