Reservations & Catering

Before you come, know we are different than what most think of BBQ in the area.  We smoke our meats every day off a wood-fired pit.  Never out of an Oven, re-heated in microwaves, or covered in sauce.  The result  –  we smoke fresh & sell out of our most sought after cuts most often our Baby Back Ribs or Brisket go first.   If our specialty cuts are gone, we have great catfish, pulled pork sandwiches, awesome grilled chicken, smoked sausage basted in our House sauce, lovely Shrimp & Grits, Crab Cakes, Wings, and a unique, regional specialty – sliced pork shoulder that can be cooked within minutes not hours/days.

In addition, we care about your family’s health and our ecological environment in which we live.  We don’t serve BBQ in Styrofoam containers due to it’s carcinogenic effects from hot foods but also the affect it has on our ground water when it is disposed.  We recycle, use bio-degradable containers, and have made a conscious effort to limit waste, plastics, the use of aluminum, petroleum coated products, among others.   When possible for our market pricing, we serve Organic.  We have Organic Salads, serve All Natural Chicken from Springer Mountain Farms that is free of anti-biotics, steroids, pesticides, and growth hormones, and now serve a BAP certified sustainable grown Coho Salmon free of Chemicals.

 

The Anti-Crockpot & Sweet Sauce

BBQ 101

We are not a Crock-pot or Sweet Sauce Joint.  Nor are we Fine-Dining as frequently perceived.  We are just a normal BBQ joint smoking meats & serving on butcher paper the old fashioned way every day.

BBQ is Pink
With the exception of our chicken in which we grill, smoked meat has elements of pink & tenderness.  It is cooked.  I promise.  Our meats are different.  We tenderize by due process of smoking long & slow hours on a wood-fired pit using only local hardwoods and lump charcoal for maximum flavor.  All our steaks, salmon, and pork chop dishes are cooked med-rare unless otherwise specified.

Our BBQ is served “warm” not hot
Steaks, Fried Catfish, Grilled Chicken, sides, and such are served hot. However, we follow traditional True-cue style BBQ methods that all BBQ meats – Pulled Pork, Ribs, Brisket, & Prime Rib are ‘laid to rest’ in warming cabinets and then served room temperature.

Meats shall not be sauced

Our sauces are complimentary to the meats and are available on the side.   For our BBQ, our home-made sauce parings are as follows; Use our House Tomato base Red Fox for Ribs or Brisket.  Our Mustard Carolina styled Bobcat for Pulled Pork, Chicken, or Sliced Shoulder.  Our Tomato/Vinegar Garfield Sauce best compliments Wings, Chicken, and Sliced Shoulder.  And finally our White-styled BBQ sauce, the Peter Cotton Tail is best only with Chicken in my humble opinion.  Please note we purchase only the highest USDA certified graded steaks and therefore do not serve steak sauces in this establishment.
