Christmas Eve Turkeys and BBQ

Merry Christmas BBQ fans. So we are starting a new tradition this year. We will be smoking butterflied bacon topped BBQ turkeys and whole smoked prime rib roasts. Pick up will be before noon on Christmas eve to give myself and my crew enough time to get home and spend the holiday with our families. We will also have whole pork shoulders and whole beef briskets or you can purchase by the pound with all of our normal BBQ sides. Check our full menu at apexbbq.com.

Prices: All of the whole cuts of meat will be market price (what you would pay at the store) + $25 smoke fee. You are more than welcome to source your own meats and bring them over for us to cook.

Also, be on the lookout for details over the next week about our store opening. We are in final stages of getting open and expect to be ready for at least craft and local beer sales by New Year’s Eve – kitchen should be permitted by then but the food truck is on stand by in case it takes a few extra days to get all permits complete.

Visit our new store on Facebook and Twitter – follow us an spread the word – website should be up and running later today.
