Mike Brinkman - Owner


Mike Brinkman attained  the name  "Uncle Pookie" from one of his grand nephews, Roland, at a family party.  When it came time to name his new BBQ team, “Uncle Pookie” came to mind quickly.  With so many family and children around, he knew the team name had to be family friendly. That’s how the name "Uncle Pookie & the Riblets" got it's start


Where It All Started

Uncle Pookie BBQ began from love of cooking for people, and SHARING...  Sharing good food, and now sharing tips, tricks and techniques we have learned and are still learning.  We want to help others the same way others have helped us!
