    the name

    The name Tu Bones derives from Michael's late grandfather Tvester "Tusome" Prince.  All of his grandfather's friends would call him "Tu or Tusome".

    So in rememberance of the man that meant the world to him and started him on his barbecue journey at the age of nine, Michael decided to keep his grandfather's name famous by naming his bbq company Tu Bones BBQ!!!
