Barbecue Pros and Influencers
love their Meadow Creek equipment
Outdoor cooking pros know what it is to have the success of an event hang on the quality of your food. For pro level cooking, you need equipment that can handle anything you throw at it and produce top-tier output, for minimal input, every time. Maybe that's why Meadow Creek's handmade barbecue equipment shows up over and over in professional foodservice and even on TV.
Gator, cook on Yellowstone TV show
Millions of fans fell in love with Gator through his classic scenes on the hit TV show, Yellowstone. Fewer know that Gabriel "Gator" Guilbeau is a real chef who has become a legend serving film crews and talent on sets across the country. Working under demanding time constraints and often harsh outdoor conditions, Gator relies on his Meadow Creek cooker to keep everyone fueled, no matter how remote the location.
Sanders Family Super Bowl Commercial
Meadow Creek made it to the Super Bowl in 2023 when family members of college football head coach and TV star Deion Sanders faced off in a contest of strength for Oikos Yogurt's Super Bowl commercial. At 00.16 Shilo Sanders improbably drags a Meadow Creek smoker into the scene, belching smoke and fully loaded with firewood. While we recommend a truck with a ball hitch for towing your trailer-mounted Meadow Creek cookers, we do approve the choice of Meadow Creek to ensure any family reunion involves huge amounts of unforgettable food.
Tikkun BBQ was born in 2020 when Eli Goldman began lowering barbecue to customers from his balcony in Astoria, NY and donating the proceeds. Tikkun quickly became an accidental sensation with locals and media hungry for positive stories in the heart of the pandemic. Meadow Creek equipment helps power Tikkun BBQ's regular pop-up barbecue events that have raised tens of thousands of dollars for causes they hope will improve their neighborhood and the world.
2fifty Texas BBQ
In a classic American success story, Salvadorans Debby Portillo and Fernando Gonzalez moved to Maryland and opened a hit barbecue restaurant serving Hill-Country-style brisket, smack in the middle of the pandemic. Meadow Creek was there from the start, supplying the custom smoker trailer that launched 2fifty Texas BBQ into a DC-area food sensation.
When Dubai-based gourmet deli 1762 expanded into the food truck concept with 1762 Smoked, they chose Meadow Creek cookers to deliver the smoky barbecue flavor required to produce their menu's vast range of ethnic flavors.
