Whiskey Six BBQ on Hunt for Executive Chef

The GOODS from Whiskey Six BBQ

Vancouver, BC | Four years after establishing a new category, branded “West Coast BBQ”, traditional barbecue without compromise, with equal emphasis on the source and flavour of ingredients, Whiskey Six BBQ is thriving. At its core, the menu is built on organic, sustainable, ethical, and locally sourced elements. Starting as a caterer and now two years into his East Van location, owner Marc Wicks – at the helm of the smokers since day one – is ready to hand over the reins.

The Executive Chef will balance a humming catering kitchen and a restaurant with a variable tide. The successful candidate will have equal parts kitchen intelligence and team management skills, plus ambition and excitement. BBQ and smoking experience is not required but it is an asset. On the job training in the art of West Coast BBQ is includedy. As Chef, you will lead the back of house and manage costs.
