BBQ catering and pop up business in Minneapolis, Minnesota

BIO: Jon Wipfli, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute of New York, recently moved back to the MidWest and is dedicated to cooking with local and sustainable ingredients. Jon recently launched The Minnesota Spoon to share BBQ in the NORTH!

Jon is cooking on a customized 84" Lang BBQ Smoker Fat Boy Deluxe with a Chargrill. He's only had his Lang for four months at the time of this post, but he has been keeping it pretty busy each weekend of the summer of 2016 with BBQ parties and pop ups around the Minneapolis area.

We're hoping Jon will be keeping it smoking all winter... come snow or wind chill! We're confident his smoker will maintain the temperature no matter the weather.
