Bobby Wease was in the sand and gravel business for 30 years. But today, he and his wife, Shirley, are known for pulled pork, barbecued ribs and smoked chicken.
The Weases operate Plan B BBQ of Montross, along with their daughter, Christine Hamilton, and thanks to their hard work, Plan B’s business is smoking.
“We serve all of everyone’s favorites,” said Wease. “Pulled pork, ribs, smoked chicken, Italian sausage, fried fish and hot dogs.” Chili and crab cakes are also frequently available.
Wease, who moved to Westmoreland County from Maryland 12 years ago, began operating Plan B as a part-time business several years ago from a location on Kings Highway he shared with a real estate firm.
This year, the family moved the barbecue business several blocks west, to 16829 Kings Highway, and began cooking, grilling and smoking their delicious specialties full time.
“Business has been very good,” said Wease. “We have been blessed.”
The Weases purchased a “kitchen on wheels” in Tampa, FL, that has two grills, a smoker, stove, oven, microwave and steam tables. “We do a lot of catering,” said Wease.
Plan B does catering work at Stratford Hall and has catered events for as many as 600 people. They were one of the most popular vendors at Stratford Hall’s recent wine and oyster festival.
During the winter, Plan B is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The phone number is (804) 456-7906.
