San Diego resident Dennis McGrath was always happy to throw a BBQ for his friends and family, but there’s a difference between your average back-yard BBQ and a BBQ in Dennis’s back-yard. When we say BBQ, we don’t mean hamburgers and hot dogs tossed on a grill, to be left to their own devices until they resemble something close to “edible.” No, Dennis’s BBQs consist of pulled pork, succulent ribs, juicy chicken, and Wagyu beef brisket that literally melts in your mouth.”Why don’t you do this for a living?” a family member said around the rib she was eating.
“It’s so much better than stuff you go out to buy,” said a friend while happily popping one of Dennis’ signature smoked bacon-wrapped meatballs
Dennis decided to make a go of it, and started his catering business “BBQ2U”
The response of the customers mirrored that of his family and friends.
“This is the best BBQ I’ve ever had!”
“You should compete!”
Compete? An intriguing idea. Did he have what it takes to go up against the pit masters like Jonny Trigg of the “Smokin Triggers” and Harry Soo of “Slap yo Daddy BBQ“? There was only one way to find out! Dennis packed up his smoker, supplies, his lovely girlfriend Sherry, and set off into the wild-blue-yonder of BBQ competition glory! After just that first competition, Dennis came home with many new trophies to hang on his mantel, including a 3rd place award in pork! After that, Porketeers was born, and the rest is pretty much history. Dennis and his now lovely wife Sherry travel from BBQ competition to competition, improving their skill in BBQ and as competitors, and having a lot of fun in the meanwhile.
What’s next for Porketeers? Oh, we’ll let you know…when pigs fly!
