Outlaw BBQ Catering and Jeff's Classic BBQ were invited to be the only vendors for the Ramada Express Hotel Casino in Laughlin NV Nov 21 & 22. They were the host of the Big Ass Barbecue Event. This weekend was the Rodeo Ropers Finals with over 3,000 competitors and also a huge Gambling Tournament. The Ramada provided the Bluegrass bands that played all weekend and Outlaw cooked over 2,000lbs of Pork Butt, Beef Brisket and Chicken. The Ramada Express served the barbecue lunch on Friday and Saturday for the guests and public with beans, coleslaw, salads, cornbread and then the pulled pork, brisket and chicken.

· What makes someone want to learn to cook an entire hog? Ask Lee Fisher. For him, it was just the next step in a long history of cooking meat outdoors. Now he does it professionally, as the co-owner of Big Bear Lake’s newest barbecue joint, Outlaw BBQ & Catering. The California native started cooking in restaurants at age 16, preparing steak and lobster. He eventually left the restaurant business, opening up a gun store, but he got sucked into the competitive world of barbecue contests. At Lee’s’s first contest in California, his tri tip scored a 180 out of 180. “The lowest score I’ve gotten is a 179,” Lee says proudly. Right from the start contest spectators starting inquiring about catering, and the people won. Lee now spends his days at a industrial-size smoker, cooking tri tip and brisket, chicken, hot links and ribs. The secret of his success? “Our rub and my cooking,” Lee says. “It works.”
We just want to acknowledge some good deeds by our neighbors here in Big Bear, who have gone above and beyond, proving that we are living in the Great American City. Outlaw BBQ has been delivering pastries and coffee to the crews since Saturday.
