Caldwell County BBQ to Celebrate First Anniversary August 17th with Live Entertainment, Complimentary Soft Drinks, and Prize Raffle

GILBERT, Ariz., Aug. 14, 2019 - Caldwell County BBQ will celebrate its one-year anniversary on Saturday, August 17 with a celebration that includes a live DJ, free soft drinks, and a raffle for more than $2,000 in gifts and prizes. The community is invited to join the festivities from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Father and son co-owners Clay and Spencer Caldwell opened the 18324 E. Nunneley Road restaurant in Gilbert when Clay came out of retirement after an inspiring trip to some of Central Texas's fabled barbecue establishments. No stranger to the pitmaster world, Clay had run Waldo's BBQ in Mesa for 20 years.

A meal at the legendary Frankin Barbecue in Austin motivated Clay to return to Mesa and establish Caldwell County BBQ modeled on Franklin's celebrated approach to succulent brisket and other culinary classics like pulled pork, ribs, sausage and turkey.

A portion of the anniversary event's proceeds will go to the #Scottsquad GoFundMe account to help cover medical expenses for Mesa 10-year-old Scott McKenzie who suffered serious burns to more than 50 percent of his body during a welding accident in July.

Caldwell County BBQ welcomes the community to join the anniversary celebration, experience great Texas-style barbecue close to home. Each attendee will receive a complimentary raffle ticket at the door.

About Caldwell County BBQ:
Caldwell County BBQ became a vision after Mesa residents Clay and Susan Caldwell visited Central Texas in 2014, where they visited some of the Lone Star State's most famous barbecue restaurants. Clay and Susan partnered with their son Spencer, owner of Gentry Real Estate Group, and Spencer's wife Alisa to locate a property for the restaurant.

The foursome purchased a residential farmhouse in a rural section of Gilbert which was then gutted and renovated the property, transforming it into a charming farmhouse-style establishment with a large dining room and outdoor picnic tables for a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere. Caldwell County Barbecue opened in August 2018 to rave reviews and has been named by Three Best Rated® one of the three best ranked barbecue restaurants in Gilbert.
