Josh And Mike At The Hinie Wagon.

Hinie's BBQ - And Hinie Wagon

They are open from 5 am to 10 pm Monday thru Saturday, and 6 am to 10 pm on  Sundays

From the family-run Top Gun Arms company comes Hinie's BBQ Restaurant and the Hinie Wagon food truck. The restaurant will be the premier place to eat for anyone visiting the Amish. At the time of writing, they are in construction and should open in August 2022. They have brick oven pizza, steaks, BBQ, ribs, chicken, seafood, and everything else a good restaurant would have. The most incredible atmosphere in the open expanse is the way you can watch each phase of the cooking process from your table. The food is prepared and cooked right in front of you. There may be a day you see the casing of the sausages, trimming the brisket, tipping the ribs, and padding the dough while you watch from your table. This makes for a very transparent way of educating visitors about their food!

Hinie's BBQ - Coming Summer of 2022

At the time of writing. Hinie's BBQ restaurant is under construction. The team at the Amish of Ethridge has met with the Weigel family to see their plans and layout inside the building. Hinie's BBQ will become an extraordinary place for our visitors! To say it is only another BBQ restaurant would be an error. The design is a hybrid of many successful places and will serve some of the best foods. We believe we are seeing the very heart of Tripp Weigel and his family in this store. He was on a tractor fixing a section of land that would be an outdoor patio exiting a bar section of his invention. All the floorplan layout options take attendees through a visual storyline of the BBQ wonderland from selection to completion. Even the party catering side will go through the visual assembly line to storage to serve the parties at Venue North.

The Story of Hinie's BBQ 

Above this sentence is the sign that illustrates the beginning of telling others about the BBQ cooked by Tripp Weigel's dad, who was known to show his "hinie." He was said always to have a smoker running, so his house smelled like meat cooking on a grill. Legend has it that he would leave the doors open, and smoke would roll through the house. This would be the house Tripp would be used to, and that one day, Mr. Hinie would make his own BBQ sauce called the "Hinie Liquor," which would one day be a family secret.

Hinie's BBQ is about family

When Tripp Weigel was old enough to work the grill, his dad Hinie told him the secret family recipe for his Hinie Liquors sauce. Tripp has taken this recipe and put it on his BBQ. His first pit smokers were small, but he soon got larger smokers and started entering BBQ competitions. He loved serving the people more than judges, so he had his own designed smoker welded so that he could cater events and special days for people. Then tragedy struck as lightning hit their home, causing it to burn down. They decided to live in a section of their home that was not attached to the main home, take their money, and build the ultimate cooking machine on wheels. They call this truck and kitchen the "Hinie Wagon" that can cook for large groups and carries its own wood.

The Hinie Wagon

The Hinie Wagon is an absolute beast of a 47-foot riding kitchen pulled by a custom Peterbilt semi-truck. You can serve groups of several hundred daily on the Hinie Wagon. A crew of helpers on board cut meats, load fryers, take orders, and put the foods in containers. You can smell the actual wood cookers before you even see the wagon! The setup includes tables as a seating area. At the events where they set up, you can order quesadillas, ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, brisket, various BBQ grilled cheese (kids love these), pulled BBQ, or chopped brisket on freshly made in-house nachos. You must get their house-baked beans in the Hinie's sauce of your choice.   

The Weigel family has more stores and places you may want to see. Top Gun Arms is their indoor range, and She Bangzz is their store devoted to ladies who get into shooting sports. Their Hinie's BBQ restaurant has several rooms for conventions or special parties called Venue North. The main room is 6,500 square feet of space, perfect for groups of up to 275 people. The smaller room is 2,100 square feet, which is great for groups of up to 80 people. Plus, the team at Hinie's caters to the event with a good selection of menu items to choose from.
