The barbeque community is a special group that we are proud to be card carrying members. Competition, camaraderie, and tasty food are involved at all of our events. A lot of the competitors are involved in the BBQ industry during the week. ‘Bart’s Blazin Q’ is a competition team that runs a successful catering company. They have decided to expand their business and open a barbeque supply store in Livermore, California. We fired up the ‘Racing Honda’ and hit the road to visit this new venture.
Bart’s Blazin Q is located in a nondescript business park just on the outskirts of downtown Livermore. The store is situated in the back and not marked very well. We drove by it on our first pass. Once found the inside was a treasure trove of barbeque supplies. Dave Bart greeted us with open arms. Sauces, rubs, charcoal, and barbeque utensils adorned the walls and shelves of this small store. The floor was decorated with different models of barbeques. There it was, the ‘Big Green Egg’, right in the middle of the store. It was beautiful. Ms. Goofy shed a tear. (Maybe that was me). Dave offered some samples of barbeque sauces. He has a sauce that is his own creation and it is very tasty. We had a good time visiting with Dave and swapping stories.
We purchased several items and said our goodbyes. Alas, the ‘Big Green Egg’ is still sitting in ‘Bart’s Blazin Q’ showroom floor. Dave & Deny Bart have a great new store to stock up on all your barbeque desires. Hopefully we will return to make that special purchase.
