Jason Carpenter is a true entrepreneur, and has proved it twice now. This is a man who left his Food City manager’s job after close to 20 years to start a food truck selling all manner of BBQ. And if that wasn’t enough, a couple years later he jumped again, this time into a standalone building. He admits that both jumps were scary, but he firmly believed in his ability to smoke meats and serve the public what they wanted. He’s been doing that since late last year at his facility on Euclid Ave. in Bristol, not far from the ballpark. Of course, much happened in between. The public loved his food at every venue he attended, and kept asking him where his location was. That is what gave him the inspiration to make the second leap.
So now here he is with his shop, and the success appears to be following him. But as bold as Jason was, it is still the food that makes the difference. Jason has that magic touch that lets him know when the meat is ready. Times can vary wildly depending on outdoor atmospheric conditions among many factors. He does pork and chicken in several varieties, but his signature meat is his brisket. He believes that brisket is not a readily available around the Tri Cities, and certainly not the way he prepares it. So far, the customers seem to agree wholeheartedly. The homemade BBQ sauce is just another of his creations that all work towards a delightful and delectable experience for the foodies who trek to his door. I suggest you join them for what is certain to be a great gastronomic experience for you too!
