Southern Indiana Eats N Treats Feature - December 2017 / January 2018: Carr's BBQ & Market
Carr’s BBQ & Market started with the Carr family serving barbeque in a parking lot on Saturdays and in April of 2014, they began serving barbeque 1-2 days a week. In February 2015, they purchased a food trailer which evolved into their catering truck. Two years later, they opened their storefront in Floyds Knobs.
Current owner, Adam Carr, who began helping his father when he was 13 years old, is a big advocate of supporting local. All of the meat served in their store is local Indiana brands including Miller poultry and Fischer’s meats, which are two of the most popular. Adam is not just the owner of Carr’s BBQ but also the current president of the Floyd County 4-H. He is a huge supporter of Indiana Grown, which is Indiana’s agricultural initiative that supports products that are grown locally and produced by Hoosiers – similar to Kentucky’s initiative Kentucky Proud.
Along with local meats in Carr’s BBQ & Market, you will find local honey and popcorn as well. They sell Heritage Honey which is from Greenville, Indiana and Hoosier Popcorn goods which are produced in downtown Indianapolis.
“I try and get my meats as local as I can get them,” Carr said. The meats that they sell contain no hormones or antibiotics. You know exactly what you’re getting out of the meat you order at Carr’s.
Carr’s father still has a hand in the business, even filling in when needed. Each week, he makes their sauce and dry rub from scratch. All of the sides offered are also homemade! Nothing is shipped from far away or produced in a major grocery store.
Carr’s BBQ smokes a variety of meats including turkey, ham, chicken and even salmon. Carr has noticed an increasing interest in their smoked salmon. “The salmon is a huge seller. Not just around Lint, but all year,” Carr said.
Carr’s BBQ offers catering for weddings, corporate events and other special occasions. They offer steak, chicken, hamburgers, pork chops and more. Don’t worry about having food warmers, they offer onsite grilling so you know the food will be cooked fresh! Originally the catering truck was intended to be a food truck, but with a high demand for caterers in the Southern Indiana area, Carr’s BBQ’s truck found another purpose and has proven to be very successful!
