BBQ Restaurant Slated For Fairfield


Shigs In Pit Barbecue will open in about three or four weeks at 2008 Fairfield Ave.

No, that is not a typo. It’s a play on words, if you get the drift.

If the name sounds familiar, it’s the same name as a competitive barbecue team from Fort Wayne.

The guys who own Mad Anthony Brewing Co. — Todd Grantham, Jeff Neels and Blaine Stuckey — are opening the new place, which will sell traditional barbecue meats and homemade sides. Shigs in Pit will have counter service and dine-in seating for 50 people as well as carry-out and catering.

The competitive barbecue team consisted of Grantham, Neels and Stefan Kelley. They competed in the 21st annual Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue in 2008 and 2009 in Lynchburg, Tenn. They finished 15th in 2008 and 43rd in 2009.

I’ll put more information in a forthcoming column when the eatery has a firm opening date.
