Pit Master Little Nick's BBQ

Professional Bio

Little Nick’s BBQ is a fourth generation owned catering and competition BBQ company. We celebrate the simplicity and authenticity of good old fashioned Mississippi BBQ.
We know the secret to great BBQ comes with time. My love for BBQ started when I was a kid-watching my father dominate the pit at any competition we could attend. I learned how to run the pit from the best pit master in Cincinnati. 30 years later, I am carrying on that legacy in my hometown of Rockford. Not only do I have my PhB :) (Doctorate of BBQ) I also specialize in making all our sides & desserts from scratch. Choose Little Nick’s BBQ to cater your next event!
