When not dominating the awards table at local competitions, Dave Tendick enjoys cooking for others and catering events with his signature seasoned meats. Dave and the team at Smokehouse 10 have assembled a menu of heaping servings of St. Louis–style ribs, served wet or dry, as well as Texas-style brisket, Memphis-style pulled pork, and other barbecue favorites. An ambassador for flavor and the art of slow cooking, Dave also nurtures future chefs through extensive, daylong barbecue classes. Students immerse themselves in the science of sauces, rubs, and injections. Chefs at Smokehouse 10 have also mastered more eccentric fare, including cheesy corn casseroles and smoked alligator ribs.
