Grilling and backyard barbecue fun is more popular now than it ever has been. Sales of grills and smokers in the U.S. hit $2.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to top $3 billion in 2024, a popularity trend with no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
So wouldn't it be great if there was a one-stop shop where you could buy a grill, grill accessories, charcoal, wood, rubs, sauces, pick up a recipe book AND the meat to put on the fire? Bonus, this store concept includes not only a meat counter and custom butchering services, but a full service restaurant, where you can enjoy grilled and smoked meats, veggies, sides and desserts. Picture it, enjoying a meal while picking up new grilled fare ideas, tips and advice from the experts on staff. Enjoy a steak prepared on the Weber Kettle you're thinking of buying, or bite into some baby back ribs that were smoked low and slow on that Traeger you've had your eye on.
A grill & smoker store/meat counter/restaurant: Everything you need in one-stop-dedicated-to-grilling-and-smoking place!
I need to sell a 'few' more books to bring this concept into reality...
