ABOUT RE-UP BBQ

The Re-Up BBQ was born from the City of Vancouver’s inaugural and controversial food cart lottery. The newly minted business partners were entirely unaware that they were about to start their own company and were blithely following their dreams in other careers.

After a series of lucky breaks and 29 sleepless nights, the Re-Up BBQ – Vancouver’s first Southern BBQ food cart – opened to the public. It wasn’t much to look at, but the city quickly latched on to the aromas of the slowly smoked pulled pork and homemade sauces bellowing from the cart.

By the summer of 2011, the Re-Up BBQ expanded its menu and its locations. Pulled Pork, BBQ Beef Brisket and Black Bean and Corn Chili are all on the menu between their two cart locations in Downtown Vancouver.

Re-Up specializes in authentic Southern BBQ — meaning the meat is smoked slowly at a low temperature, not grilled, to infuse flavour and create the most tender of meals.

The locally raised meats are smoked all day over pecan wood at Re-Up’s kitchen. The pork is shredded by hand before heading out to the carts and into a sandwich. All sauces, condiments and drinks are made from scratch, and that’s the way it’s going to stay. The crew at the Re-Up BBQ keeps the menu simple and focuses 100% on the flavour of the sandwiches.

A lesser known fact: the Re-Up kitchen team brines and smokes their own line of bacon including such illustrious ingredients as Makers Mark Bourbon, Central City’s Red Racer IPA and Ancho Chili powder. Both this bacon and seasonal, freshly brined turkeys are available through their website.
