Carson City BBQ
Carson City BBQ's founders have 20 years under their belt making and catering some of Nevada's most award-winning sauces and ribs, but they didn't start out that way. Two decades ago, they were just two friends who liked to fish and grill. They'd load up a little yellow Toyota with every mini grill they could find and head up to Lake Lonahan, where friends would meet them and everybody would chow down on the duo's ribs.
One year, as fate and climate would have it, the lake dried up. At loose ends, the friends decided to head to a nearby ribs festival. After sampling their way through much of the fest, they both came to the same conclusion: their ribs were better than anything else they tried. So, they bought a huge smoker. After a short stint toiling in obscurity at rib festival, a friend asked them to cater his wedding. Their homemade sauce and tender ribs got an enthusiastic response, and the two launched into the catering business under the now-historic moniker of Carson City BBQ.
