Barbeque is quintessentially American, and there is nobody that does it better than Top Flight BBQ. They are legendary caterers, but now they also have a big blue food truck to bring that movable feast all over the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and the Northern Shenandoah Valley of VA.
Their traditional southern barbeque is the product of considerable care and talent. A minimum of eight to twelve hours of “slow and low” preparation using hickory wood is the magic method behind Top Flight’s incredible dishes. They do not pre-sauce their meat either, instead using a savory dry rub to provide flavor and offering three signature sauces on the sides to allow their clients to find just the right flavor for their taste buds. Offering the sauces allows guests the ability to enjoy their individual favorite flavor by selecting from the choices of sweet/mild, spicy, and vinegar-based sauces that have been engineered in the Top Flight experimental kitchen.
In addition to signature pulled pork, the company offers baby back ribs, two kinds of chicken, and a variety of side dishes, including redskin potato salad, coleslaw, garden salads, and desserts. (Even their honey-sweetened cornbread has a following of its own.) Plated together, the offerings create a meal where each item compliments the flavor of the plate overall.
We are so honored that they offered to help our team reach our goal of raising $2,500 for the National Stroke Association. Check them out at topflightbbq.com or call 865-384-5949. More importantly, be sure to “like” them on Facebook to keep up with where their food truck will be serving up the “goods” next.
