Meet "The Flag" aka Jerry. He has been
a huge help in transporting gear and
helping setup at contests for the past
2 years. He has been a close friend for
over 6 years and an all-around great
guy. Almost always wearing his
signature Stars & Stripes hat, he has
become a staple at our contests!!
Sabrina has been with the team from
the beginning. She has said from the
start that we had something to
really grow on. Here we are 2 years
later with a website, delicious sauce,
catering opportunities and nothing
but the world ahead of us! She is one
of the originals so when you meet
her, say thank you!
Hi, I’m Thunder aka Bubba! I’m the newest
member of the PITTY QUE family and the face
of the brand. My hobbies include playing with
my toy piggy, annoying my big brother Storm,
and playing tug with my daddy. I have a
smile like Elvis and the energy of the
energizer bunny. I keep going and

Fostered and adopted by Eric & Dana - 2015
Eric is the founder and head pit master at PITTY QUE.
Eric grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and has spent
most of his career in the technology field but he has
always loved to cook and even more to barbecue! Eric
and his father, Fred, started out doing competition
barbecue contests together a couple years ago. This
was started as a hobby but grew to so much more.  Eric’
s main objective at the competitions was to make sure
the sauce was the best. In trying many different recipes
he finally got the perfect combination! All of this
started as a way for a father and son to spend more
time together and it has become that and more.
Fred is Eric’s right hand man at PITTY QUE, they make
a great father-son team when it comes to smoking
and barbecuing. Fred was born in Germany and
moved a lot along the way but is currently residing in
bright sunny Florida. That sometimes makes it
difficult for Eric and Fred to visit but with PITTY QUE
the visits have become more frequent and more
memorable. Since the first competition that Fred and
Eric did together, everyone knew they would be a
success. One being that the food and sauce were
delicious and second the teamwork that both showed
to each other.  
What can we really say about Dana?
She has a contagious smile and her
attitude is one in a million. She has
been married to Eric for over 7 years
and pushes him every day to be the
best he can be. She is the Vice
President of PITTY QUE, always
promoting the team and making
friends at every turn. As you can see
in the picture, she never stops smiling!
Hi, I’m Storm! I’ve had many foster
brothers and sisters. Sometimes they
annoy me but mommy and daddy say I’m
a good boy because I play with them
anyways. I have allergies, so please don’t
think I’m weird if I rub my face on the
couch when you come over 

Adopted by Eric & Dana - 2009
Hi, I’m Billie Jean! I love to play with
my best friends Storm, Rayne, and
Thunder when I visit Auntie Dana and
Uncle Eric. My mommy rescued me and
gives me lots of love. Don’t leave your
socks laying around because I will
claim them for my own!

Adopted by Sabrina - 2015
Hi, my name is Rayne. I am my
Daddy's baby girl and a spoiled little
princess! I love to chase bunnies and
spend time outside. I have been a great
mommy to all the foster puppies we
have had but most of all I love to steal
my dad's pillow at night!

Adopted by Eric & Dana - 2010
Hi, my name is Munchie and I am the
southern bell of the group. I live in
Florida with my daddy and I love to
cuddle with him and give everyone
kisses. I also love to chase my tennis
balls but my biggest love is my rubber
toy heart ❤

Adopted by Fred - 2004
Hi, we are Boyd and Hermeez! Boyd
loves to play with tennis balls and
any stick he can find. Hermeez is a
little more laid back but he is the
guard of the house. Garbage day is
the best as he loves to chase the
garbage trucks along the fence line!

Eric P is our go to traveling assistant.
He knows good BBQ when he tastes it
and is spot on for feedback during our
competitions. The two Eric's make a
great team and they have always
finished in the top 5 when they are
together. They are in sync, calm, cool,
collected and unstoppable!
Cory could sell the shirt off his
back! He is amazing at our events
helping sell and promote our sauces
and rubs. His tactics are hysterical
and make you turn your head but
success follows! He brings
persistence and a never take no
attitude! To quote the man himself...
"What? You don't like BBQ? You
don't want to save the puppies?"
Hi there, I'm Maggie and I am just one
of the sweetest pups you will ever
meet. I love all kinds of food and most
of all I love going to the park with my
dad! I also enjoy playing every chance
I get and also protecting my house
from those stinky skunks!! LOL

Adopted by Eric P & Rene - 2015
Rene is a great set of hands for
helping the team and a big smile
for the customers! She helps Dana
with sauce sales at our special
events. She was also a huge help at
our People's Choice competitions
in 2017 by helping hand out the
samples and keeping Eric on the
smoker where he belongs!! LOL
Brian has been instrumental in
teaching BBQ wisdom from his
many years of competing. He has
assisted at competitions as well as
our largest catering event in 2017.
He is a great guy and we are
happy to have him be a part of our
team when called upon!
