We are cooking up a load of pork butts for one of our catering events. They have been on a slow smoke for the last 12 hours over some rich cherry wood. It sure smells good.
We had a big win at the Madison, IN Ribberfest! Thanks for all who came to support us!
Here is the latest addition to our cooking library. Wonder what to do with left over turkey from Thanksgiving or anytime? Here is a great idea.
Turkey Tacos with Cranberry Salsa
We are very excited to add a new vending trailer to our fleet. It is equipped with an Ole Hickory BBQ Pit and an 8 foot charcoal grill. It has a steam table,commercial refrigerator on board and is health department certified. We will be using this to sell BBQ at various locations or can bring it to your event to take care of your guest.
The latest addition to our collection of Ole Hickory CTO’s is “Wic”. I bought this when I cooked a contest in Florida earlier this winter. We plan to use this trailer-mounted CTO for on-site catering as well as for extra capacity. We’ll probably also use this for competitions that are far enough away that taking the 5th wheel would be too expensive.
We are honored to say the DOT Food, Mt. Sterling, IL who is the largest food re-distributor in the United States is one of our customers. The cooler warehouse at DOT went 365 days with out an accident on any of the shifts. To honor the cooler team, we served them a Whole Hog BBQ. We did a whole hog for each of the four shifts along with side items. The team was very excited and happy with the pork. Here are a few pictures of one of the events. And, thank you DOT Foods for letting us serve you.
Follow us as we travel to the heart of Texas for the National Barbeque Association Conference and Expo in Austin, Texas. The suitcases are packed, our presentations are as ready as they’ll ever be and we’re headed to Texas – via O’Hare…..(hopefully there’s enough time for two out of shape BBQ’ers to make the connection).
The itinerary shapes up like this:
Monday — we travel, hook up with friends and get into a Texas state of mind;
Tuesday – Bus tour of legendary BBQ joints off the beaten path;
Wednesday – Bus tour of famous BBQ joints in the Austin Area;
We recently put on a “Ice Cream Sundae Bar” at Washington School in Jacksonville. It was sponsored by Jacksonville Savings Bank as part of there school sponsorship program. The kids had hamburgers, hot dogs and got to make there own ice cream sundaes.
At the National BBQ Association I had the pleasure of meeting Dave Anderson, of “Famous Dave’s BBQ” Dave is the founder and guiding force behind the 176 location chain with locations across the US. Dave is a very nice guy and has a true passion for BBQ.
