Timeline: October 7th, 2015-9 p.m. Pitmaster Rozchea Butler and Prep Man, John "Ice Machine" Scroggis, stride resolutely to the restaurant which, in another hour, would be otherwise dark and silent.
Rozchea begins pulling over scores of Pork Butts off the big smokers to wrap and hold while he loads the next round, which were lovingly hand-rubbed and cured over 24 hours prior. Scroggins starts cooking the 500 pounds of beans and making the 300 pounds of coleslaw that will be needed by 11:00 a.m. the next day. He's spent the last three days prepping 320 baked potatoes that will also be served at 11:00 a.m.
Kendo Burks, dishwasher extraordinaire, shows up at midnight; and 5 others at 5:00 a.m.
Why the extra attention? Two weeks ago, we received a catering order from Little Rock Air Force Base to feed 2,000 warriors at LRAFB Sports Day. Six weeks prior, we were asked to feed 350 people at Cardinal Health with a Baked Potato Bar. As a punctuation point, we donated food for 80 people to the Wildwood Center for the Performing Arts on a full service at 6:00 p.m. that night.
All jobs went flawlessly, thanks to the dedication and professionalism of what is arguably the most talented staff in the business. Yes, food for 2,000 is a big job; but we regularly feed groups of 30-600. And we cater to groups as small as 8 people. We feed 1,500 at Riverfest each year and 3,500 for the Little Rock Marathon. Four- to six caterings per day is average. Big or small, we specialize in delighting groups of people with our barbecue.
