Welcome to the new home of Big Mike’s BBQ!
What a rush! 2016 has been an interesting year for our wee family, but an exciting one. Never a dull moment in the Bell household. We’re a busy working couple, with an energetic (crazy!!) 3 year old and an equally energetic pooch!! We’re offering meat that has been handcrafted with real smoke for real BIG flavour! Big Mike’s BBQ is done Texas Style. Big portions with big flavour, sold by the pound. Our awesome sides shouldn’t be forgotten either. All made from scratch and made with local ingredients. The sides are almost as important as the meat!! You can’t forget dessert either. Texans just wouldn’t have it any other way. Grab a mini pie, a tart or something seasonally delicious. The perfect sweet treat to end your meal.
Most people ask, “why BBQ?” Well, a few years ago, Mike discovered Texas style barbeque. Since then, its been a smokey love affair. In January of 2015, we visited the heart of Texas BBQ. For 10 days, we toured bbq shops all over Texas, speaking with pitmasters and tasting their craft. It was on that trip that we realized we wanted to open Big Mike’s BBQ! Slowly and steadily, we have been building our dream.
September of 2016 was a monumental month for us. We purchased our very first home (yah!!) and just as exciting, we purchased a giant truck to be converted into Big Mike’s BBQ mobile smoker! Located just outside Picton, we are currently working to convert the lower level of the house into our commercial kitchen!
Big Mike’s will have a permanent home starting in early 2017. Stay tuned for more details regarding where you can find us on the daily! Big Mike’s BBQ is also available for all your catering needs. From ready made meals, stag & does/jack & jills, bachelor(ette) parties, late night snacks at your wedding, or even your whole wedding meal. Big Mike’s can do it all. We’re now booking for 2017!
Wish us luck as we enter the realm of kitchen installation this winter. We look forward to the endless product testing that is going to happen over the coming months. YOu should all look forward to endless invites, because we certainly can’t eat it ourselves and we all know that Mike cooks enough to feed an army.
A huge thank you to all our friends and family for your never ending love and support. Stay tuned to our social media for updates and invitations!
Love, peace and good food to all.
