CulinArt Sales Director Wins Big in Texas BBQ Competition

POST, TEX.—Paul Rennie, director of business development for CulinArt Group, recently participated in the Lonestar Barbeque Society’s 5th Annual State Championship Barbeque Cook-off, along with several family members. The team was honored as Reserve Grand Champion for their performance, placing high in several categories.

Dubbed “Smokin’ in the Park,” the three-day event last August required Rennie’s team to set up smokers and equipment on a Friday, camp out under the stars, and take turns tending to their briskets and brines overnight. They also had to obtain pecan wood from a ranch near Lubbock and brisket from a butchery located at Texas Tech University.

Following a judges’ inspection of meats, the team (one of 100 from all over the United States) worked their secret rub recipe for ribs and chicken. When the smoke settled by Sunday, Team Rennie submitted 15 servings of chicken, ribs, brisket and beans to the judges’ panel. After placing 2nd in Brisket, 3rd in Chicken and 5th in Beans, it was receiving the honor of Reserve Grand Champion (second-highest point total overall) that made all the effort worth it.

“Not bad for a couple of guys from up North,” Rennie, based at CulinArt’s Malvern, Pa., office, commented. “We had a great time with family and met some very welcoming fellow competitors.”

“We’re already looking forward to next year,” he added.

Rennie’s business development territory includes the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

What our clients are saying

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”
