Uncorked with Honest Labor

Music by Honest Labor. The original members of the trio are skilled tradesmen – Friar, a stonemason; Sauder, a blacksmith; Weaver, an upholsterer – and the band takes its name from their day jobs as well as their “honest and straightforward” approach to music. The group has been performing together for more than ten years, adapting other musical styles to their acoustic blues method.

Food truck is Rocks Money Pit.

I spent hours and hours researching and practicing different combinations of injections, rubs, types of wood, smoker temps and sauce. Family and friends were my “guinea pigs” or as I called them taste testers. Good thing is they all survived. What all this lead to was perfecting the craft of BBQ, with the proper combination of injections, rubs, wood types, smoke and temps that compliment each other to create GREAT BBQ. All of this leads to the heart and soul of ROCKS MONEY PIT BBQ, our award winning championship BBQ
