After a long hard winter for many, the long awaited warmth of summer creeps up on the Northern US and Canada, delivering the smell of flowers, cut grass and outdoor grilling.
The beginning of summer also ushers in a frenzied time of activity for many Food Warming Equipment (FWE) customers that rely on food trucks, festivals and Champion BBQ events across the Nation.
Among these Pit Master Champions, are the folks at The BBQ King Smokehouse, who we met with yesterday, to help get his mobile operation in high gear as he meets the demand for an extraordinarily busy season.
With only one day left to go, Jason Szmurlo, owner of The BBQ King Smokehouse, leads his battalion of employees and vehicles to serve up Ribs, Pulled Pork and other favorites for the hard core smoke lov’n attendees at the 16th Ribfest Chicago . Averaging 50,000 pounds of pork and anticipating over 60,000+ attendees, who look forward to kicking off summer at this grand three-day event on June 6th, 7th, and 8th at the Ribfest Chicago, known for hosting the titans of the BBQ pit. Located in the heart of Chicago, on Lincoln/Damen/Irving Park, everyone will see what makes the BBQ King the monarch above all other BBQ
Szmurlo is a long time, road hardened veteran of the festival and BBQ champion circuit. With a string of successes, measured in an impressive series of trophies and awards, he finally opened up his first brick and mortar restaurant and settled down in Woodstock, IL. Jason’s operation now provides some of the best BBQ year round to demanding BBQ aficionados and this booming business couldn’t be better. The BBQ King Smokehouse plans to expand into new avenues of merchandising, including sauces and rubs.
With a few of FWE’s highly mobile Moisture Temp Heated Holding Cabinets pulling duty in both the kitchen restaurant and deployed in his mobile operation, FWE will be there to help Jason deliver on the quality that makes The BBQ King true champions.
