Our story begins in a small town
After 26 years of service with Pitt Ohio Express, it was time to retire and for me to embark on a new journey and follow my passion of "low and slow" bbq cooking. Melissa and I have always enjoyed preparing smoked meats for friends and family and after years of experimenting with different flavorings and recipes, we felt like we had something special and everyone seemed to agree. With continuous requests to offer our smoked meats to the public, we set out to find a smoker trailer. In 2013 we started the mobile bbq and spent our days traveling to surrounding local areas to promote ourselves. The NAPA parking lot in Cochranton was the first "home" of our mobile bbq and eventually, we expanded to the Diamond in Meadville and other locations in Sandy Lake. We had such positive feedback and the demand for our smoked meats was huge. The number of requests for catering events like weddings, parties, picnics, was huge and as a result, we started looking for a location to set up shop in. I stumbled upon the Park Avenue location one day and knew it would be perfect, the vision for space it is today came to me immediately. It took six months to revamp the building into what it is today because it was not previously a restaurant. Today it is exactly space I initially imagined and is perfect for offering my homemade sides, wood-fired pizzas and smoked meats.
When it comes down to it, fiddling with temperatures and smoke absorption is small potatoes when it comes down to how the meats actually taste. The low and slow methods utilized in a smoker produce juicier, smokier, and far more tender meats than any other method of cooking.
