BBQ Tour Itinerary

Welcome To The Tour

We are excited to have you joining us on this journey of BBQ! Here are a few key things to remember:

  • Come with a full tank of gas
  • Bring chairs if you want to eat outside of your car.
  • Don’t forget a drink. Water will be provided.
  • Be sure to bring a face mask
  • The last stop has a large outdoor yard with seating and drink/addition food service. You are welcome to eat in their space or in your car, just let your tour guide know.
  • If you get separated from the group, don’t panic. Just use the links below to navigate to the next stop and we will meet you there.
  • If Google Maps starts going in circles (i.e. a waypoint doesn’t register), use the “remove next stop” option and that will get you back on track to the next waypoint.
  • If you skip multiple waypoints, it will be easier to just clear your Google Maps and use the Address only button below to navigate directly to the next BBQ location.
  • Your ticket includes a 20% tip for each restaurant for your samples. Feel free to give them more. Tipping your guides is not necessary but always welcomed.

Meet us at the first stop (below) at 1PM.

We will collect the group in the side lot at the far end of the building. Look for someone in a Hawaiian shirt!
