Big Dan's BBQstarted out in my backyard. My first smoker was a tiny, electric smoker, but the first time I smoked a pork shoulder on it, I was hooked! Throughout many years, and many smokers, my goal has been to make BBQ that will keep people coming back for more.
After leaving the corporate world in 2012, I bought a big ole BBQ trailer and started Well Done Q. During the next three years I worked hard at learning how to make BBQ on a much larger scale than the backyard. There were a few misses, but many more hits!
My wife, Denise, and I are at the BBQ stand most of the time, and we love interacting with our customers. We have many locals who come often, and with our close proximity to Knoebels Amusement Park, we get many out-of-towners that have made our little roadside stand a regular stop on their annual visits to the park.
As we grew, I wanted to establish a business identity that would connect on a personal level with my customers. Since we get to interact with almost everyone that stops by, I decided to change the name to something that conveys the personal touch that goes into our BBQ and into our business. In 2016, we changed the name, and relaunched as Big Dan's BBQ.
We continued to grow in the roadside stand, and in the end of 2019, we got to the point where we needed to expand. We decided to convert the loft inside Rohrbach's Farm Market into a sit down restaurant with a larger kitchen and storage area. This allows us to expand our days of operation, handle inclement weather, and offer additional menu items and specials more easily.
Beginning in April 2021, we opened our new indoor space in the loft! It has been a long road to get here, but we are so excited to expand inside and continue offering your favorite BBQ!
We are so thankful to all of our customers who have helped us grow since 2013!
Thanks for visiting my site. I look forward to cooking for you soon!
