Hot Butts BBQ Chef Chris Harkleroad

My love of cooking started as a child. As a young child i cooked my with my grandmothers who were both great country cooks.
I grew up with influences from German, Latin, and country cooking. One grandmother lived in Florida and although was raised country she was exposed to Cuban and Puerto Rican styles.
The other was a master of slow cooked hearty food and Baked goods.
My father was also an inspiration showing me that it was ok to be a tough guy and a great cook. And never tried to stop me from my passion. He also taught me the love of grilled and smoked meats.
My wife Stephanie also has helped me to see my dreams of bringing my style of food and has always stood by me.
As for me I have spent my life learning to combine Sweet, Salty, Savory, Spicy, And Smokey into the best BBQ. I hope you agree.

Do you want to be a vendor at the Grand Central Market
during the St. Pete Pride Festival?
As you may know, St. Pete Pride had concern about filling up the 3 extra blocks that they are occupying for the Sunday June 25th Festival and they asked us if we would like to have our Grand Central Market as part of the festivities. Last year, more than 40,000 people attended the festival—and it keeps growing each year! The market will be on the street itself (Central Avenue – closed to traffic) and will include arts, crafts, vintage, upcycle and cool “homemade” items. There will be no large corporations in our section – our Market is local and we like to keep it that way.
Vendor Fees are $100 for arts, crafts, vintage, etc. and $150 for Food Vendors.
We are beginning to fill up the allotted spaces so please register today! Register at
