Crazy Carl’s BBQ ceasing counter sales today

Crazy Carl’s BBQ, which began operating out of Brandon 1st Stop last November, is ceasing its daily counter sales at the convenience store as of Friday.

Co-owners Carl Brakke and Jo Hausman have decided to focus more on catering and setting up at special events.

“It’s been wonderful because it grew so fast,” Hausman said.

The daily grind of the business, however, prompted the change.

Crazy Carl’s famed ribs and brisket will be available at special events, such as Friday’s Automania here in Brandon, where they will have two booths. Crazy Carl’s BBQ has also applied to be at the Sioux Empire Fair, and is scheduled to be at Lake Preston Days. Weddings and other catered events are also on the schedule.

Brandon 1st Stop owner Ann Evangelisto said Crazy Carl’s was a good addition to her convenience store.

“I believe we’re seeing new faces as there’s a lot of interest in Crazy Carl’s,” she said earlier.
