Our second son Bobby was born on May 2nd, 2018. Eleven days later he was admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore Maryland where we spent the next three months and ten days, minus a few days here and there where he was healthy enough to come home. Our Bobby passed away late in the evening on August 23rd, 2018 at 3 months and 21 days old, losing his battle with cancer. 4% of the Federal Cancer Research Budget is put towards pediatric cancer research as of 2018. Children, our future, are being diagnosed, entering outdated treatment plans, and are passing away every single day from this most horrible of things. At Bobby O's, in our son's honor, we aim to do everything we can to help in the endless fight against pediatric cancer by donating 20% of net proceeds to the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center's Division of Pediatric Oncology.
About the Owner: Colin's love for cooking with fire came around twelve years ago. He purchased his first smoker to go along with his grill in 2014 and has been at it ever since. Co-owner of SillsnSope's BBQ, he and his partner Eric cooked for several events ranging from small office lunches for ten people, to a wedding of 125 people over the past two and a half years. On an annual basis they partake in Taste of Blakefield, an event hosting several local establishments with over 1000 guests in attendance. "Barbecue connects us to our past, to a time without gas, anti-griddles, flash fryers and the like. Wood, fire, smoke. It's that simple." - Colin Soper
