About the Music

About the Food

Skinny’s bbq was established by Chad Dunmeyer in September 2021. While they've only been in business a few short months, his food speaks volumes with his passion for cooking and making your taste buds water for more. While it’s always been a passion of his to create mouth watering food and watch people smile, he was not able to follow my passion until 2021. His goal is to create wonderful masterpieces that keep their customers happy, along with experimenting to always supply them with our newest creation.

Skinny’s bbq is set up to offer a concession trailer experience, full catering service for any event and a party picnic menu that is specialized for graduation parties, birthdays or a “just because” party.

Two mottos for his business are:

“Never trust a skinny cook” and “I’ve got nothing to hide, so I put my sauce on the side.”
