Can’t Stop Smokin’ BBQ

It’s Tuesday! And naturally that means today is an Artsy Fartsy Foodies day. We are excited to focus our attention on one of our savory Eat Your Art Out Chandler restaurants, Can’t Stop Smokin’ BBQ.

The roots for Can’t Stop Smokin’ BBQ were planted in 1991 at the deli counter of Frank’s Fruit Market in Ruidoso, New Mexico.  Owners, Pete and Cassandra Schiavone, had dreamed of opening a quality food business. Their dream came to life and blossomed quickly into a success. After franchising the business, the quality agenda began to spread across the United States. And we are lucky enough to be apart of their delicious dream.

Their New Mexico style smokehouse was developed as part of the largest, freshest product market in the southwest. Technique and time are as important as the rubs, seasonings, and sauces that they have spent years perfecting.

So when you walk into Can’t Stop Smokin’ for your next meal, you will find you are greeted by a great menu, great staff who love what they do and are proud of the food they serve.

Be sure to visit Can’t Stop Smokin BBQ on Tuesday, February 26 for lunch or dinner! 25% of their sales help support various programs at the Center.

Artsy Fartsy Foodies: Chandler BBQ Co.

Passion. It’s the theme that I’ve found with people in the arts and food worlds (like I mentioned last week). And Chandler BBQ Co. is no exception.

“I have a passion for food, and a passion for it (BBQ),” said owner John Benson. I had a chance to speak to John the other day, and I found that it wasn’t just food he had a passion for, but for community as well.

“We are Chandler BBQ. We want to give back to Chandler, promote Chandler, and be involved with everything in Chandler,” he said, citing examples of lending a hand to the city’s high schools and other fund-raisers. Now, Chandler BBQ has a chance to give back to the arts, and they’re jumping at it.

Chandler BBQ is one of the first restaurants to sign up for Eat Your Art Out Chandler, and we couldn’t be happier. They have a great reputation in the community and have always been down to giving us a hand.

“The arts bring culture to Chandler,” said John “And it’s a great way to give back.”

I encourage you guys to try out Chandler BBQ Co sometime soon, just to make sure you like it, and then head back there with some friends on February 28th for Eat Your Art Out.

If meat so tender you can leave your teeth at home sounds good, but not what you’re craving, head back here next week and maybe you’ll like what I have to offer.

Stay hungry, my friends.
