“Freedom Fashion BBQ” named throughout grand opening of Blackhawk BBQ | Information

BLACKFOOT – The grand opening of Blackhawk BBQ Pit’s brick and mortar house is finally here. Nic Transtrum and his family invited the folks at Blackfoot to open their family business on Thursday July 1st after a crazy year of construction to get to that point.

Transtrum, a former U.S. Army Blackhawk pilot, decided to incorporate his past into his future in hopes of cementing a legacy of crickets that would draw references from every corner of the country.

Transtrum started the business as a mobile grill company serving many different favorites from across the country. He announced during his grand opening opening speech that he is often asked what style of grill he pursues? Transtrum stated that he has influences from Kansas City to Texas flavored and smoky, to spicy Carolina and even as exotic as overseas Iraqi barbecue, but none of that is his style – his style can only be called “freedom style.” He stated that due to the many influences from across America, he has brought all of the flavors together to create an authentic taste bud liberating taste that will prepare his customers to return for another “mission”.

Transtrum didn’t spend too much time talking, but he made sure to thank those who serve this great nation, the police, the firefighters and all the other heroes who make sure our lives are allowed to be this way, as is the case in the US, the Army National Guard is there for being there and sharing the latest chapter in his life. After giving thanks, Transtrum raised hands with the veterans in attendance for recognition, then expanded it to include those who have a family member serving or serving, and then anyone who knows someone serving or serving. He emphasized that we are all connected by service and that those who give and some who give all do so for the people in the home.

Blackhawk BBQ Pit was a popular addition to the area when it was mobile and will continue to be as it has a home base. Transtrum assured its customers that they will continue to travel their now three mobile units on the I-15 corridor to distribute great barbecues in the valley and at the same time have the Blackfoot people on site at W. Judicial Street from Wednesday to Saturday and Street to use N. Broadway. Wednesday and Thursday have earlier closing times than Friday and Saturday, whereby the earlier closing time is 7:00 p.m. and the night barbecue rush can last until 9:00 p.m.

After finishing his announcements, he invited members of the Greater Blackfoot Area Chamber of Commerce to approach the entrance for the official ribbon cutting. Mindi Loosli from the chamber passed the giant scissors to Transtrum with a giggle and warned him: “Be careful, they are sharp.” Transtrum posed with the scissors and prepared to cut. After just a few seconds, he cut the ribbon and the crowd of nearly 100 people broke out in clapping and cheering.

Transtrum served his country as a Blackhawk pilot, touring overseas, and traveling where the military needed him. Since then, he has shared that experience not just through his barbeque but through the friendships he made, taking close friend Jeff Deru on a life-changing experience offered by the Mountain Home National Small Business Guard. Transtrum was able to climb back into a Blackhawk with Deru and a few other friends and share his experiences with them.

Davis BBQ serving up Kansas Metropolis-style fare in Sterling

By Barbara M. Houle

People line up early in the day to try Pitmaster Josh Freda’s Kansas City style barbecue at Davis Farmland in Sterling. With the grand opening of the Davis family’s year-round Davis BBQ Restaurant last December, guests now have the opportunity to try Freda’s Grill, even if popular Davis Farmland is closed for the winter season and reopens in the spring.

The 200-seat restaurant and outdoor terrace at 145 Redstone Road are an extension of the main barn on the property with its own entrance and exit that is separated from the farmland. No need to buy a ticket to the farmland to eat at the restaurant, which has indoor and outdoor TV, pick-up and curb service.

Groceries bought at a counter are brought to the table by a waiter. The current opening times are Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Phone: (978) 286-8888.

It has a full liquor license and takes reservations and walk-ins. Visit https://davisfarmland.com for menu and updates.

Freda von Leominster loves to talk about everything grilling, from smoking techniques to his outdoor smoker Betsey. He uses only hickory wood to smoke extraordinary cuts of Kansas City meat and stressed that he wanted to “enhance, not obscure, homemade sauces.” Grilling is his passion, he said.

The new restaurant has been in the works for a while and before it opened there was a lot of behind-the-scenes activity including focus groups and tastings, according to Freda, who said the Davis family always go the extra mile on projects they run.

“No abbreviations,” he said. “We are pleased about the positive feedback from our customers. Restaurant diners especially like that the menu has everything from soup to nuts, and the weekend specials are a huge hit.

“Grill plates, sandwiches, homemade bowls, burgers, children’s meals, desserts. I could go on and on about the menu,” said Freda. “So many possibilities.”

State-of-the-art filtration, hand disinfection stations and touchless bathroom fixtures are just a few of the restaurant’s safety features. Strict guidelines and security protocols protect guests and employees, he said. There is certainly no shortage of food at Davis Farmland, or of animals and activities for the whole family. You can even experience a bit of farmland near the new restaurant in an adjoining barn that is home to animals such as goats, sheep, cows, and llamas.

Barbecue and more!

Pryor plans to only drive through the restaurant even after the coronavirus pandemic.

“I think we got through better than most of the others because we never had to switch off,” said Pryor. “We have been blessed.”

Pryor is proud to support the community and loves that the community supports the restaurant, he said.

Central Texas Fashion BBQ serves Pearland by way of all situations

PEARLAND, Texas (KTRK) – Central Texas Style BBQ has been in Pearland for more than 50 years and it is their mission to always be there for their community. Even in difficult times.

“We know people need food,” said owner Ruth LeClere. “However we can do it, we’ll do it.”

Central Texas bought a generator after Hurricane Ike cut power in 2008. As a result, they have been able to provide food through a wide variety of natural disasters. They didn’t have to close since the current storm left many Texans cold, in the dark and without water.

“It’s good that Central Texas BBQ is open,” said customer Harry St. Clair. “Pretty much everything in Pearland is closed.”

LeClere says they could stay open until 5 p.m. most days, selling whatever they could get their hands on.

“We’re just busy,” she said. “We haven’t had any food deliveries since last Friday and my son went out and got what he can.”

The gesture is not lost on the residents of Pearland.

“I’m glad something is open,” said Jonathan Turner from Pearland.

For LeClere and her family, the result of their love for Pearland is staying open in treacherous conditions.

“We just do whatever we have to,” she said. “If we have to work 18 hours to get it done, so will we.”
