MILWAUKEE — Jericho Shaw owns Jericho's Barbecue and has been serving the Milwaukee community for 30 years.

He started selling barbecue from a car wash that he used to own.

"Within those eight years I was at that car wash, I didn't know I needed that license," said Shaw. "When I knew I needed one, I got everything in order."

Jericho remembers selling Kool-Aid as a nine year old kid in the streets of Milwaukee.

"We just had a jug of Kool-Aid and a couple of cups," Shaw says. "No sooner than we set the stand up and here comes some people."

He sells everything out of his 18-foot small Chevy bus.

"With the rib tips, I cook them and I chop them up," Shaw says. "Then I put them to the side and smoke them all night."
