Yesterday I had the opportunity to invade Cheff JJs downtown location to work with his team to develop a bacon and make plans for the first, of hopefully several, Old Major & Cheff JJs dinners. Cheff JJs is a really cool event-based restaurant with locations in Broad Ripple and Downtown Indianapolis. They do all sorts of themed dinners, beer dinners, wine dinners, cooking classes, team building, training and more. What’s uber unique about them is that they do all of their cooking on the big green egg. I you haven’t checked out the Big Green Egg, you should put a little google on it and check it out. It’s a Kamado-style grill that is hyper efficient and capable of getting to extremely hot temperatures.
The Old Major themed dinner at Cheff JJs will be announced very soon but I think the date will be 4/20/2017 at the downtown location. I’m excited to taste some OM products with the team @ Cheff JJs so we can spark some ideas and excitement for the menu. Expect to see a collaboration Bacon coming soon from Old Major and Cheff JJs. We are utilizing the Old Major recipe and process but instead of barrel smoking in our portable pit smoker, we are going to be smoking the bacon on 20 Big Green Eggs! #Collaborbacon will be available at the Dinner, OldMajorMarket.com and the Farmer’s markets while supplies last. I can’t wait to do more collaborations! Stay tuned for another update!
