Little Nick's BBQ will be open on January 25th, at 3118 Auburn Street in Rockford, and this looks delicious.

Let's learn a little about Pitmaster Thad:

I learned how to run the pit from the best pitmaster in Cincinnati. 30 years later, I am carrying on that legacy in my hometown of Rockford. Not only do I have my PhB :) (Doctorate of BBQ) I also specialize in making all our sides & desserts from scratch. - Pitmaster Thad Denthriff


Little Nick's BBQ, is a 4th generation owned company that began in 1953 in Missouri. If you know how they do pork and all the goodies down down south, oh man I can't wait. They celebrate the simplicity and authenticity of good old fashioned Mississippi BBQ
