Shipping Container Becomes BBQ Joint – Saucy’s Barbecue – Petersburg, VA

From the ‘wish I thought of that files’, check out what these guys in Petersburg, Virginia are doing with a used shipping container? They made a BBQ Joint out of it. Meet Saucy’s Barbecue in Petersburg, Virginia.

Fred Wiggins from the The Progress-Index does a great BBQ Joint write up entitled ‘Restaurant In-A-Box’
From the article container/joint owner Tom McCormack says, “We bought the shipping container, because that was the idea, to get something that would fit into the neighborhood here.” Makes perfect sense and I’m sure that others are going to jump on the bandwagon as space is definitely a premium across the US.

Additionally Fred writes, “McCormack said his barbecue pitmaster Erich Wolfgang is the developer of several different sauces. On opening day, Wolfgang had created a mustard-jalapeno sauce, traditional tomato and vinegar-based sauce, and a special coffee-based sauce.” They are already attracting a crowd in their first days of operation and at the moment you’ll be finding the menu to be focused on brisket and pulled pork.

You can check them out at the corner of 5th and Bollingbrook here:

  1. After we read the newspaper article, we stopped by & tried it out.

    It was GREAT! Absolutely no frills, not even seats or tables, but they make some fine eats on that mobile cooker chained to the cargo container! If you don’t want to eat in your car, there’s a very picturesque cemetery just a mile south on Crater Road, with a big gazebo smack dab in the middle.

    We’ve been back several times; we like it.
