Castro’s Trump Donors List Leads to Booming Business for Texas BBQ Chain. “Every Bill Miller BBQ in SA has been PACKED constantly from open to close!”
A Texas business has seen a boom in business since the owner was outed as a supporter of President Donald Trump by Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas).
Castro, the chair of his brother Julian Castro’s presidential campaign, published a list of 44 San Antonio residents who have donated to Trump. He highlighted to his supporters that it included Balous Miller, the owner of Bill Miller BBQ.
Since then, business has exploded at the BBQ chain.
Pictures published on social media showed a long line of cars waiting to pick up food from some of the locations. “One of the companies he fixed is Bill Miller’s Barbeque. The lines were out the door, and the drive up lanes were several times longer than usual. So, thank you Joaquin, we show you don’t matter,” one Twitter user said.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was among those posting their support for Bill Miller BBQ, saying he visited the chain after Castro published the list.
“Perfect night for Bill Miller BBQ,” he wrote.
“Every Bill Miller BBQ in SA has been PACKED constantly from open to close! Well done @JulianCastro,” another user added.
“There was a line out the door all day at Bill Miller’s BBQ. Nothing like free advertising,” said another.
