Man in Market - BBQ Ribs in Lutz, Florida
 
Whaley's Barbeque has its roots in a traditional outdoor produce market begun four generations ago in 1926. Located in South Tampa and known as Whaley's Market, the business quicky flourished and became a favorite gathering spot for the locals, offering fresh produce, gourmet cheeses, fresh seafood, and the highest quality meats. As a hobby, Todd Whaley began smoking meat and cooking barbecue for his family's popular market. He started with pulled pork sandwiches and expanded to ribs, half chickens, brisket and smoked salmon. In 2009, Todd decided to take his show on the road - literally - and got into the food truck business.
Eventually, Todd opened his own BBQ stand on US 41 in Lutz, where his business is now a local favorite! Today, we have 3 mobile BBQ stands that stay put and 2 trailers for handling off-site catering. What makes Whaley's Barbeque so delicious is the fantastic combination of quality meats, oak wood smoke, dry rub, and the special sauce lovingly created by Todd's mom! We go through some 60 gallons of sauce every week and we sell it in 16-ounce bottles at any of our locations. You can even bring back your empty bottles to the stand for refills and save some money.
Of course, we can't forget about the final element that goes into savory barbeque - time. If you're in a hurry, cooking barbecue is not for you. At Whaley's Barbeque we slow cook the pork and brisket all night long and the rest is cooked in the daylight hours so they're done by noon. So stop by or give Todd a call at 813-373-1682! We know we'll quickly become one of your favorites!
