Meet John- The Man Behind the Pit

Hey There!

First off- thank you so much for your interest in my catering company. I couldn’t be happier that you’re considering me to help your next gathering go off without a hitch!

I began my BBQ journey as a young boy watching my father, brother, uncles and more gather around the grill at any and every opportunity. The “Grill” became the place where stories were told and memories made. Magic happened at the Grill. I knew from a young age if you cooked great food, people would gather.

My first commercial BBQing occurred at Albertson’s grocery stores in the mid 1990’s. Every weekend I would sit out front of the store with a Santa Maria style grill selling Tri-tips, chicken and Ribs. It was a great way to start honing my craft!

My cousin, Billy Pereira, and I served Hamber-dogs at the Grand Opening of the Les Schwab tire centers while we worked at Ameripride Uniforms. We would serve up to 500 of our “Pereira Boy” creations at any given event.

The one common thread from these events and my childhood was that people loved to be around good food and fun loving people!

That is where JP*B*QUE™ was Born!! Serving Family and Friends with LOVE as the Main Ingredient!!

I would love for you and your family to experience the fun as well!
