From Backyard to Entreperneur
Joe Poteet has been creating delicious barbecue for over 20 years. Family and friends had always suggested that he should open a restaurant, but he didn't want to make his hobby into a full time gig. That was until 2016 when he started getting tired of the 72 hours work week he was doing at the mill and he started doing research on opening a food trailer; something that his town of Sweet Home, Oregon didn't have.
Christy Poteet had gotten hurt on the job as a Paramedic and got the opportunity to go back to school for her Business Management Degree. Together with his creativity and his desire to create traditional smoked meats and her mind for business, together they created J & C BBQ and Catering in the Summer of 2016.
They knew that they could create traditional barbecue and homemade side dishes; a taste that couldn't be found unless you traveled to the South where barbecue was born.
With their unique craft and attention to every detail they decided to venture out into the catering world. Their catering services have become so well known that businesses and individuals from all over Oregon are seeking J & C BBQ and Catering for their catering needs.
