Award Winning the Shed to Open in Mobile, Alabama
The Shed BBQ has signed contracts to open a location in Mobile, Alabama. The Shed serves award winning barbecue,and they have a truly Southern atmosphere with their quirky shed restaurant.
The exact location in Mobile, for now, is top secret. Ms. Orrison gave a hint to the new location, "It will be somewhere near the University of South Alabama."
Pit Master Brad Orrison perfected the technique for cooking The Shed BBQ's tender, juicy, sweet tasting barbecue. Orrison spent years of trial and error to find the right combination of time, wood, and choice cuts of meat. He has trained a few new pit masters to cook the meat just right so the taste can be recreated in their new location.
The Shed is known for delicious award winning barbecue, but it is also known for the shed itself. Ms. Orrison promises that every new Shed will be different from the original in Ocean Springs. Each new Shed will have its own distinct look and atmosphere. However, they hope to keep the uniquely Southern feature and tradition of a building that is a hodgepodge of materials, rickety, and almost dilapidated as a great place to eat and hang out. Mobilians that can recall such great places, especially before Hurricanes Fredrick and Ivan, will love The Shed BBQ.
Another Southern tradition is the sweet taste of the barbecued meat. Pecan logs, limbs and old eaten out tree trunks are piled up behind the building in Ocean Springs. The Pit Master arrives in the pre-dawn hours to stoke the smokers with wood, to ensure the cooking temperature and time for the meat is constant and to The Shed's standards.
Guy Fieri visited The Shed BBQ in Ocean Springs during his tour of the Food Network's 2020 show DinersDives and Drive-Ins. Fieri raved about the barbecue and classified The Shed as "junkadelic." The Shed BBQ fits the title of junkadelic and it is a recycler's dream.
From the parking area, the building looks more like the potting shed of a flower nursery than a restaurant. Corrugated tin, used, broken, warped and cracked lumber, drift wood, and other items that drifted up are nailed and wedged together to form the shed. The main door looks like an old gate with a bent tree limb as the handle.
The front entrance and seating area is cooled by fans with water misters mounted on the face of the fan to blow a refreshing mist into the air. About 20 yards from the entrance is the outdoor stage used for live entertainment, and during the day it entertains youngsters that climb up there and pretend to be a star. The stage matches the building, drift wood beams, old used windows, and a well used golf cart sits atop the side storage area of the stage.
Your order is taken at the window, where they ask for your name. Sweet tea and sodas are self serve, and all you can drink. Choose from a great selection of ice cold beers or stronger libations, and the bartender will hand it to you. The servers shout out your name in search of your table. You can sit inside or outside, at a picnic table, an old school desk, or the bar.
