Bill W Sr. & Don Holt started Bar-B-Que Traveler
in 1982. They started with one cooker (they named Big Bertha).
3 years later they addded a second machine "Lil-LuLu"
and second truck to handle the increase in business.
business continued to grow throughout the years to the point
that Bill Sr. retired from his regular job at Uniroyal and
began spending all his time with Bar-B-Que Traveler. After
that the business grew to the point that Bill purchased a
5 acre farm in LaCarne, Ohio & built the building that
we are in now. Bill Jr. & his family worked many hours
especially during the summer months with Bar-B-Que Traveler.
In 1993 Bonnie Bolyard came aboard. In 2001 Duepree "Super Dueper" and LuAnne Pitts (daughter of Bill Sr.) moved to Ohio to work in the family business. Before the move they and their three children had been spending their vacations here helping out with busy BBQ weekends and enjoying alot of what this beautiful area has to offer.
machines & equipment were purchased through the years.
We now have 6 stainless steel moble cookers and various trucks
& vans to handle the more than 80,000 people we served
of our machines have names — Big Bertha, "Lil"
