Current events – Mid September 2007

This week is really hectic for Bucky McOinkum's Barbecue. We started off the week with a barbecue class at Cooks' Wares in Springboro, OH. The class was a big success; it was full in less than a week after registration opened up for it. We had a full house, with some on a waiting list, too. Props to my peeps (Maria and the staff) at Cooks' Wares for all their help (like my 'urban' talk there... I'm so with it... Not!) We did a full competition menu of chicken, ribs, pork and brisket, with cole slaw, tomato pie and doughnut bread pudding added. The sauce for the bread pudding included some Maker's Mark whisky... Man oh man, was it good stuff! Read More »

City Barbeque fire

On August 11, 2007, City Barbeque in Centerville, Ohio, sustained $550,000 worth of damage due to discarded smoking materials (read somebody tossed a cigarette butt against the building). The flames spread up the side of the building into the attic. The attached Graeter's Ice Cream shop had some smoke and water damage, but the firewall between the buildings stopped the fire from spreading to the adjacent shop. City Barbeque is allowing its Centerville employees to work at other locations (City BBQ is a 12 store chain now). They expect to reopen in less than 60 days. Read More »
