Food by Rock’s Money Pit

I spent hours and hours researching and practicing different combinations of injections, rubs, types of wood, smoker temps and sauce. Family and friends were my “guinea pigs” or as I called them taste testers. Good thing is they all survived. What all this lead to was perfecting the craft of BBQ, with the proper combination of injections, rubs, wood types, smoke and temps that compliment each other to create GREAT BBQ. All of this leads to the heart and soul of ROCKS MONEY PIT BBQ, our award winning championship BBQ.
