The founder, owner, & operator of Bodacious, a BBQ pioneer and the original Mobberly pitmaster passed away September 20, 2018. At 78, Roland was still stopping in most days to check on the crew, give direction and eating barbecue.
While Roland isn't physically here anymore, he is living on in spirit as his crew has taken over his specialty techniques and his family continues operating the businesses. The barbecue pits still function to his specifications and the hum of the Mobberly cleaver echoes his direction. We believe he's watching over us!
