Grillmington BBQ Pop Up featuring Little Luke’s BBQ

Have you ever wanted to try authentic competition barbecue like you’ve seen on the tv show Pitmasters? Now is your chance as World Cafe Live presents “Grillmington BBQ Pop Ups” featuring the top mid-atlantic BBQ teams from Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and of course Delaware! The best part is… the event is FREE!

Little Luke’s BBQ was founded in 2010 by Tom Merola, Tony Merola and John Jenkins. The team was formed in honor of Luke Thomas Merola who passed of SIDS at 11 months old. Tom, Tony and John have over 20 years combined experience preparing award winning bbq. Little Luke’s only uses our original rubs and sauce recipes to prepare our award winning bbq. We believe in slow smoking all of our meats over hardwood charcoal and fruit wood to add the perfect amount of smoke to compliment the quality cuts of meats. This philosophy has allowed the team to capture many awards for chicken, ribs, pulled pork and beef brisket. Some of the awards include 2011 winner of the Gary Maddox Rib challenge and numerous top ten finishes over the last couple years at Que for the troops, New Holland Summerfest, Que by the Sea, and The Keystone Classic just to name few. The guys from Little Luke’s compete against some of the best BBQ cooks in the country.
