Passionate at BBQ, Brian first began making sauces and rubs just for himself. Then he started getting requests from friends and family wanting to buy it - and now here they are!

From their Facebook page it looks like they've been serving food at events and doing catering, and now they're set to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant.

Brian says,

My passion is BBQ and everything that goes with it. I love to smoke meats or just about anything you can cook on a smoker and experiment with new rubs, seasonings, and sauces.

The couple moved from their home in Texas to Hastings in fall of 2023.

Somebody Slap Me That's Good BBQ's Grand Opening is Friday Dec. 8, 2023, 5p.m. to 10p.m.

For appetizers you'll find Meaty Cheese Fries and Smoked Steak and Smoked chicken bombs. The "bombs" are jalapeños stuffed with meat and cream cheese and then wrapped in bacon.
