Sponsor - 521 BBQ

Owner and Pit-master Mike Dial’s personal story is one that’s becoming common in the barbecue business.  Barbecue houses established during the depression or just after WWII were handed down through families.  Today, with the advent of national barbecue contests or the urging of friends and family, some amateur grill masters have converted their passion in to a business.

That is the case for Dial.  After retiring from the US Navy, he worked for a company that entertained during the Winston Cup Races.  Dial was in charge of the barbecue for these events.  "Folks started telling me how good my barbecue was and said I should start my own place,” Dial says.  So he did, partnering with brother Robert Dial and Mike Melton (no relation to the famous N.C. Melton barbecue family).  The rest is history!
