Blane Hunter - Porky Butts BBQ - Omaha, Nebraska

In this episode I get the chance to chat with Blane Hunter from Porky Butts BBQ in Omaha Nebraska.

They do sell out(especially beef ribs) most often on the weekends and holiday, but you can call ahead.

He grew up in Texas, moved to the east coast for culinary school then found his way to Wisconsin and eventually Omaha, Nebraska. THEN he got into competitions. He's done over 130 competitions, had 85 top 10 finishes, 22 Grand Championships in 9 different states, 7 Reserve Grand Championships, 2016 KCBS National Grand Champion – Team of the Year, 2016 KCBS National Ribs Champion, 2017 American Royal Open World Champion, 2017 American Royal Open Brisket Champion, 2017 King of the Smoker Grand Champion, and 2017 King of the Smoker Brisket Champion(among other accolades).

His menu is creative and he considers it not just a Texas style BBQ joint. More of an American style spot because of everything he offers. Insane sandwiches(one with blueberry bread) and platters that can feed a small group up to a small army. Porky Butts BBQ is a laidback casual counter service bbq joint where they bring the food to you after you've ordered.

The have a full liquor license and are adding onto their already popular curbside/take-out. For delivery they just do Just UberEats.

They are located at: 15475 Ruggles St., Suite 105 Omaha, NE 68116
