Minnesota State Mankato Alumnus to Offer On-Campus BBQ Demo and Maverick Meal Deal


Alumnus, former MSU wrestler, and barbecue competitor Pat Nelson, owner of Big Boned BBQ, will return to campus on Thursday, August 4, as part of the Student Activities Summer Program Series.  Nelson will provide a barbecue demonstration, beginning at 11:30 a.m. on the MSU Mall, located near the outdoor fountain on the north end of the Centennial Student Union.  Small samples of his award-winning meats will be available.

New this year, a Maverick Meal Deal will be offered.  For $6, attendees will be able to enjoy either a pulled pork sandwich or a brisket sandwich, a side of coleslaw, and a side of cornbread.  Only cash payments will be accepted, and they may be paid at the event.  Advance orders are requested and may be placed by emailing or calling 507-389-6076 by Tuesday, August 2.  Departments or offices wishing to place multiple orders are encouraged to send one group order.  Orders should include the quantity of each (brisket or pulled pork) desired, a name, and a contact phone number and e-mail address.  A limited number of meals, in addition to the advance orders placed, may be made available.

 Nelson and his Big Boned BBQ team will be competing in Mankato’s annual Ribfest, taking place at Riverfront Park August 4-7.

Please email, or call 507-389-6076 with questions regarding this event.
