Last weekend I attended the Good Food festival in Mississauga. I got the chance to visit a friend of mine- Frank Caputo. He is owner and pitmaster of Hank Daddy’s BBQ. I finally got to see his operation his catering trailer and to try all of his BBQ.
It smelled great from the outside as we walked up. It smelled even better when he opened the doors to temp his chicken wings. They were enormous. HUGE massive meaty wings plus butts were cooking. Delicious aromas of BBQ wafted everywhere. Even though we had just finished an excellent brunch (fried chicken waffles, sausage gravy biscuits and more!) at the Stockyards I was already salivating.
Inside the show they were all ready to feed the public. Hank Daddy’s was serving up lots of their famous pulled pork parfaits!! A delicious BBQ meal in a cup. Chock full of pulled pork mashed potatoes and sauce! Thats a whole lot of happiness.
Everywhere we went in the show people were eating BBQ. They were making a whole lot of people happy with their excellent food.
We tried their brisket, pulled pork and all their sauces. Top notch quality and great BBQ flavor!! Loved the sauces and their meat. They are very diverse and cover all regions of tastes. Original BBQ, Carolina Mustard BBQ, Hickory BBQ, Vinegar BBQ and they also have their original rub as well. I am uber impressed by how well balanced they all are. I am really looking forward to playing with his rub on some upcoming projects. All their items are available online.
One of the fun things about Hank Daddy’d is that they also have a fire wing challenge
Inspired by Adam Richman of Man vs Food , Hank Daddy has developed his own FireWing Challenge using his own Original Barbecue Sauce and some of the hottest peppers on earth. cChallengers must finish 15 FireWings in 15 minutes or less. If FireWings are eaten in less than 15 minutes, they must wait out the full 15 minutes with nothing to drink or wipe. Additional rules apply, and challengers must sign a waiver.
Successful challengers win a lifetime of bragging rights, a t-shirt a Survivor Certificate and are pictured here, on our Wall of Fame.
We had a great time with Frank and his family and I completely understand why they are so popular wherever they go. Good Food Great people and excellent BBQ
