Why do you do what you do?
“I do what I do because I love what I do. Everything from the creative process, to the ability to learn about and connect with other cultures through food and laughter as a common bond.”

Born and raised in Haverhill Massachusetts, Chef Hobbsie (aka: Adrien Hobbs) is an official Bar-B-Que artist. As young child watching his mom his first understanding of cooking starting out as a necessity. Soon his curiosity kicked in and he started to play a bit more in the kitchen. Gradually this goofing around expanded his basic knowledge from what might thought of as flat flavors to creatively unlocking flavors that surprised all of those he served. His next step was off to culinary school to sharpen his skills. Now, life is all about the flavors of food.

2014 was the year. It was the year that friends and family insisted, that enough is enough. his signature dishes were top shelf and so Hobbsies BBQ was born. Thank you - For Adrien Hobbs friends and family are where it’s at; “Regardless of what it is, where I am, or what I’m doing, it always comes back to family.”

His Signature dishes are anything grilled or smoked - as these methods and practices, as primitive as they may seem, can create such a particular uniqueness when orchestrated in perfect harmony. (grill design, seasonings applied, wood chips added, cooking time, temp control, and list goes on!)
