Bret Tuck, executive chef and pitmaster of Edley’s Bar-B-Que East, will be at the East Nashville Farmers Market this week smoking and grilling locally-raised meats and veggies for our market guests to sample. Edley’s Bar-B-Que East is a top-level sponsor for the ENFM 2015 season, and we are thrilled to have Tuck’s extensive experience and the Edley’s mobile grilling machines show our shoppers how to smoke premium cuts of brisket, chops, shoulders, and more — all raised by our local farmers.
Located on East Nashville’s burgeoning Main Street, Edley’s Bar-B-Que East is where the locals go for saucy, down-home barbecue and Southern vegetable sides. As executive chef and partner of Edley’s East, Tuck believes in using the freshest, most quality meats and vegetables in his restaurants and at his events. And with over 10 years of event and competition experience, he knows just how to feed the large food-loving crowds at our farmers’ market. That’s why we are happy to have East Nashville’s favorite local BBQ joint, Edley’s Bar-B-Que East, as a top-level sponsor for our 2015 season.
In addition to the East Nashville Farmers Market, Edley’s East is involved in numerous other community events and charities across Nashville, such as the Martha O’Brian Foundation, East Nashville Little League, The Contributor, Tomato Art Fest, Musician’s Corner, and more. Tuck enjoys sponsoring interesting projects and events, like the ENFM, that support the community and also supplies an outlet for doing what he loves — cooking for and feeding large crowds.
“I like cooking in general, but cooking for large crowds within the community is special, because you feel involved and get to meet so many great people, ” he says. “The best way to meet people from anywhere in the world is to dine with them. So I think cooking in the community is a very special thing.”
Come see Tuck and his arsenal of mobile grilling machines this week at the East Nashville Farmers Market, and taste delicious farm fresh meats and veggies hot off the smoker and grill!
