Our Journey, In the spring of 2008 and after a long day of work our stomachs longed for a nice pie delivered hot to our house. Unfortunately, given our geographical location outside of Kiel, our options were limited, none. We set out to fix this. Having driven past an old empty building almost daily, Jen thought it would be the perfect spot to open a small pizza place and offer delivery to the city of Kiel and outlying areas. By October 2008 our dream became a reality and Parker John’s Pizza was born. Named after our son, Parker John, we tailored the concept towards kids and offered pizza, wings and spaghetti in a family friendly atmosphere. Why BBQ and Pizza? Well it’s two of our favorite foods and since we already had the pizza down we saw no reason to take it away. Our smoker fired up on October 28, 2011 and worked tirelessly up until its passing on May 23, 2016. Our new smoker has now more than doubled in size, the menu has become a bit more diverse and our focus on preparing everything from scratch has never been stronger. Our goal is to continue the tradition of great slow smoked meats served up in a laid back atmosphere for years to come. And what about that pizza you may ask? Don’t worry, we still like to crack a beer at home after a long day of work and see that little car pull up with that hot pie we craved many years ago. As we begin to move outside of Kiel and add new locations we would like to thank you, our guests, for being a part of our success.
