MADISON – Anyone craving authentic smoked meats only needs to look for the shiny, red trailer in downtown Madison. Biffle’s Slow Smoked Barbeque and Catering is open for lunch and dinner.

Owner Ruby Biffle and husband Curtis have stationed their eatery on the Zero Sullivan Arts property at 4135 Sullivan Street (west of Main Street at the railroad). “I’d say we operate as a quasi-food truck, because we don’t go from location to location daily,” Ruby said.

Their concession trailer has a fully equipped kitchen and enclosed smoker for cooking meats. “Weather is not a factor,” Biffle said.

Both retired, Ruby and Curtis were looking “for something to do that we both love and wouldn’t have to do every day,” she said. “My first job in Huntsville was a waitress at Shoney’s. My husband has always loved cooking and has catered events before.”

One client shipped Curtis’ ribs to the state of Washington for a family reunion. When Curtis was teaching, he always barbequed for the school at year’s end.

Biffle’s specializes in slow-smoked brisket, ribs, pulled pork and chicken, with plans to add wings and fish. Side dishes and desserts vary daily with choices like green beans, baked beans, cole slaw, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, fruit pizza, red velvet cheesecake brownies and fudge pecan brownies.

“Our barbeque is special because we don’t parboil our meats and use our own sauce,” Ruby said. “Our customers like it because it is tender and delicious.”

Brisket has been most popular with customers. Recently, they sold out of brisket within an hour after opening.

Both from Greene County, Ruby hails from Eutaw and Curtis from Boligee. After Curtis’ service with the U.S. Navy, they returned here for him to finish his degree at Alabama A&M University.

The Biffles cater for birthdays, family reunions, graduations or any celebration.

Biffle’s is open Tuesday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 256-701-0782 or 256-701-7834, email to bifflesslowsmokedbbq@gmail.com or visit Facebook/Biffle’s Slow Smoked Barbeque.
