Pilots, Airplanes, and

Special Thanks to the famous "Quiet Birdmen"....faithful customers
for some time. Last Saturday I personally served their event held at
Lago Vista's Bar-K Airport.
Rudy Mikeska's Bar-B-Q
Hosts the 22nd Annual Taylor International Barbecue Cookoff Judges
For 22 years we have hosted the Judges Luncheon for the Annual Barbecue
The Judges are treated to an All-You-Can-Eat Fried Catfish Buffet. Over
128 Judges attended the invitation only event.
The Meat Counter
The "Meat Counter".... Beef Brisket, Mikeska Brand Spicy Pork
Sausage, Smoked Ham, Bar-B-Q Chicken, Pork Ribs, and Lamb Ribs. This
is the typical meat selections our customers can choose from when going
through our cafeteria line.
The Cookoff Judges were impressed with our Roto-Flex Carousel Smokers
that can cook 70 Briskets every 6 hours.
They also enjoyed our Homemade Bread.... GOOD NEWS: My cousins Nick
& Gerry Mikeska have finally seen the light. The are starting to
bake "small quantities" of homemade bread at the Mikeska Bar-B-Q
location in El Campo Texas. Good Luck guys..... remember, you are
not real "bakers" until you can cook over 200 loaves every
