Ribbon cutting Bub's BBQ

Downtown Rensselaer got a new eatery this week, Bub's BBQ. This morning the Chamber of Commerce had the traditional ribbon cutting.
 Bub's features slow-cooked barbeque. The meat for one day is put into the smoker or cooker the evening before. Today this has caused a problem because last night the cooker malfunctioned, so with no barbeque available today, the store will be closed.

The sandwiches on the menu (two sandwiches served with one side) cost $6.00 or $8.00. The dinners, served with bread or cornbread, pickles, and two sides, cost from $8.00 to $16.00. The combo plates range from $14 to $22.
 The decor is a bit different from when it was the Doghouse. Note the lights--they were made from buckets bought at Tractor Supply.
Bub's BBQ has had large crowds this week. It is too bad that there will be disappointed people today who were eager to enjoy some slow-cooked barbeque.

Bub's BBQ started in DeMotte. The Rensselaer location is much bigger than the Demotte location, which I think only does carry-out. The Facebook page is here and its web page is here.
