History of Andy’s Hickory Pit
In 1991 we had a large hog farm. We started experimenting with barbecue, doing benefits for schools, nursing homes, families and friends. Everyone told us we should go into business. At that time we still had the hog farm and were continuing to develop our sauces and rubs, and passionate about barbecue.
In 2001 we sold the farm to pursue our barbecue business. We built a large smoker and began doing fairs, festivals and catering. In 2005 we designed and built a large moble hickory pit unit and opened Andy’s Hickory Pit Barbecue. We sold barbeque around the lake area and central Mo. Business was good and we quickly out grew the moble unit.
In 2007 we opened Andy’s Hickory Restaurant in Eldon, Mo., our home town. While in the restaurant our product line and sales continued to expand. In 2009 we sold the building, (due to the economy) and went back to the mobile unit, which we still operate at 1800 bus hwy 54 in Eldon, Mo.
Through the last 20 years we have developed some unique sauces and rubs we think you’ll love. Coming soon, you will be able to purchase sauces and rubs at AndysHickoryPit.com
and several local markets.
