The Okanagan Valley has welcomed us into their hungry world with encouragement and positive reviews and we felt the love all the way up to our ribs. We have served thousands of meals to hundreds of people – many we never knew before but are now good friends. Meanwhile, we have been fortunate to find amazing, talented people to work with us and several staff members have been here the entire time.
That’s the thing in our business. People! It takes a lot of them to create and present passionate food. Hours and hours of advance preparation go into everything we make because every recipe is our own and made from scratch – sauces, dressings, rubs, buns, muffins, biscuits, desserts, stew, gumbo, brisket and ribs, on and on…
The result? Well that’s the other side of the people story. Customers! In our first six years we have been blessed with many. We can tell you dozens of entertaining stories about how people from around the world managed to find us. Australians who loved our food, returned home and told their friends to come to Vernon for brisket and ribs. So they did! Stories about how much some folks would pay to buy a bottle of our after-burner sauce or an entire mud pie desert, even though they are not for sale. About winning so many awards in the six years of the Vernon Chili Cook Off contest. We’ve also taught a group of Edmonton Army personnel how to use a smoker. Yes, we’ve worked our briskets off all these years and we’ve had plenty of fun doing it.
We are excited to be serving up some amazing BBQ again! We have taken this time to ensure we are doing things right and meeting all the requirements due to COVID-19. This means the highest level of safety for our staff and customers. We thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and cooperation during these uncertain times.
So our on-going goal for the years to come is to continue smoking, drinking up good stories and serving passionate, wholesome food to incredible people from around the world. Hope we see you soon!
