Bien Fuegos BBQ- Derek Pierson
I got to spend a lunch break with Derek Pierson, the Owner, and Local Pitmaster behind Bien Fuegos BBQ, an Orlando native bringing a Cuban twist to Texas-style BBQ right here in the city.
Derek and I spoke about his love for BBQ and why Texas BBQ. We spoke about how he started to do Pop-ups and find places to be able to sell. We spoke about learning the craft of BBQ and when he decided it was time to move from feeding just friends and family and feeding the masses.
We spoke about the difficulties of working full-time and also smoking meats and prepping for events. We spoke about the BBQ community and also the importance of not just having great food when you are a small popup business. Derek also speaks about having to get out of his comfort zone as well and having to wear multiple hats.
