Smokehouse aficionado and founder Dave Diephouse & his wife, Marie Quillan, decided to bring their BBQ savvy to Ludington because it’s their favorite place to be. After an early career on the catering scene in Grand Rapids, MI, Diephouse wanted to get back to his passion of smoked meats and family-style fun on the gorgeous gold coast.
“I love giving people a big plate of food for the buck. Family-style southern food like ribs, slow-cooked brisket, beans, and mac n’ cheese invoke good times to me. I wanted to create a place where both Ludington tourists and locals could pickup the whole package and call it done. That’s why I created the Combos and Flying Pig packages – so you could order everything you need to feed a group of 6 – 8 or more,” said Diephouse.
