Popular starter items on the menu include the southern catfish tenders, stuffed potato skins, ale and cheese soup, deep-fried pickles, and BBQ nachos.

The Pitmaster offers up a delicious a meat-lovers combo consisting of Carolina pulled pork, Texas beef brisket, and cheddar jalapeño sausage piled high on a fresh hoagie roll.

Mix it up with the Egger-riffic-Burger, an angus burger served open face with smothered homemade Sausage gravy, chicken fried applewood smoked bacon, an over-easy egg, and cheddar cheese.
