Blaccghst BBQ was established in September of 2012. We started out as competition BBQ'ers. As we continue to enter and place well at these events, it soon became clear that this is something I wanted to do. So, we opened up on weekends at the Newbo Market in Cedar Rapids, IA. That was the best thing for us at the time. We build up our customer base, and established ourselves as one of the best food vendors at the Newbo Market.

In 2014, we were blessed to meet and build a relationship with Tom and Toni Hauer, the owners of Julia-N-LeChef Catering. As they were my business mentors, they have been more like family.

So now, with their blessings, I run Blaccghst BBQ at 426 1st Ave NW in Cedar Rapids, IA.
We specialize in Catering at this time, with that being the bulk of our business, and serving lunches when the opportunity arises. As we move forward, changes will be made in order to serve the public on a more consistent basis. If your looking for great smoke flavored BBQ, with the taste of back yard parties, and charcoal smoke in your face, then contact us and we will be more than happy to make your event as special as you are.
