In The Beginning
BBQ Masters was originally formed from a Scripter James 2:26, Which says faith without works is dead, with that understanding , the very first BBQ Masters to be was Born originally called "Out on Faith" Located in DeKalb county Georgia, Located on Wesley Chapel Road. It was at this location that the BBQ Business was tested; the owner Chef Eric quickly realized that it took more than Faith; faith merely being part of it, it required hard work, creative marketing, commitment, focus, and lots of catastrophes, in addition to a boat load of money to be chance.
The county decided to place a two mile median right in front of the restaurant, causing the restaurant to starve for customers, and eventually leading to its demise, just like that! $75,000 bucks gone and the company called out on Faith were out of business and Bankrupt.
Now out on faith for Real, Broke Busted & Disgusted.
The owner was now cooking BBQ on Street Corners Zigzagging across Atlanta just to stay above water, Perfecting his BBQ Recipes and stacking his cash, refusing to spend it on what others deem the necessities of life. Prideful, Hopeful or shameful, The Chef chose to sacrifice a few things, like not paying his Mortgage or his Georgia power bill, Stubborn & Determined believing that he could do more with his light bill money than Georgia power could, like buy more BBQ Meat to sale, he decided to save his BBQ earnings and slept in his home with no lights for 8 months.
Craving for another opportunity to cut lights on for his soon to be customers Chef Eric believing in himself, experience and his dream to be a successful restaurant owner. Suffering it to be so, he did save up the very minimum he deemed necessary to open up another restaurant.
That James 2:26 Came calling again, Out on Faith the, restaurant 2, the Chef gave a deposit for the location he thought would be successful in Stockbridge, Georgia, However after giving his deposit and jam-packed with excitement to get underway in his newest place, while watching the news that same evening he saw that that very building go up in flames, so did his anger and creative voice sounds coming out of his mouth. And it was not Hallelujah.
Losing faith and very disappointed, he decided to give up on his dream and open up a small computer repair shop, taking over the lease of a good friend, he began the building for a life that he cold shouldered. Miserable and tired he was called up again by that very familiar scripture James 2:26 before the construction was even complete, he found the strength to reposition himself from a Yolanda Adams song "I'm gonna be ready" and "I gotta Believe". So what was to be a computer repair store, essentially became a take-out BBQ restaurant, rebirthed and renamed BBQ Masters.
What a fitting name for a Master Chef, Gone BBQ!
Hungry scared and unsure of his future, he perfected his BBQ by cooking with passion, as if he was making love to every ingredient. With this attitude it yielded customers satisfaction and before the 1000th Brisket was cooked he found BBQ Masters moving to another location in Morrow.
