Thanks to All! The 91st Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church Barbecue is in the books!

It was wonderful to be back in business after a three year layoff. It took a lot of hard work to knock all the rust and dust from everything, but it was done. We wish to thank the BBQ Committee for all their work preparing, planning, and implementing everything that needed to happen to make it so. Chairpersons Charles Kimrey and Bill Wood did an outstanding job orchestrating and organizing the preparation and the event itself. We also wish to thank the scores of volunteers who came out to offer time, muscle, and effort. Without their support, none of this could have happened. It was great to feel the Mallard Creek community come together, work together, laugh together, serve together, and simply be together. We are already looking forward to next year, the 92nd edition of the Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church Barbecue.

However, we at Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church were overwhelmed by the public response to our barbecue. After a long pause due to COVID, we are gratified that so many wanted to be a part of the restored event. But as with all restarts, we were not able to meet the demand that presented itself. We sold out our barbecue and Brunswick stew much faster than we anticipated. While it was wonderful that we had so many customers so early in the day, it did mean we had to close sooner than expected. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused but know we will be making changes as we look ahead to the 92nd Edition of the barbecue, looking for ways of increasing our production for all the hungry people. Maybe you would like to be part of the prep team next year! See you in 2023! In the meantime, if you really want to keep things going, join us for Sunday worship and fellowship at 10 am, in person or online!. It doesn’t have to be once a year! Thank you for your support and your patience.

WE’RE BACK!! The 91st Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church BBQ – Thursday October 27, 2022

The 91st Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church BBQ is on and WE’ER BACK!

The fourth Thursday of October holds a special place in the hearts of the members of the church and the community at large. This year’s BBQ will be a little different from any that we have seen before. Our delivery methods will DRIVE-THRU and WALK-UP CARRY OUT ONLY. There will be two walk-up carry out stations: The Walk-Up Carry Out at the left side of the Drive-Thru area and at the Sandwich Stand.

We are not able to offer dine-in seating this year.

Our menu is assuredly the same; Hickory Smoked Pork BBQ, our special Brunswick Stew and our own blend of Cole Slaw (vinegar based). Please check the MENU Page for current pricing where you can also download an order form to complete and bring to place your order quickly. We accept CASH and VISA/MC CREDIT CARD payment methods for your convenience. Sorry, NO DEBIT CARDS accepted.

Serving begins at 10:00 AM and we will continue until sold out.

Mallard Creek BBQ segment on PBS Channel 42 – Charlotte 2016


It is only August but you can be sure that members of the Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church BBQ committee are already getting ready for our 89th year on Thursday, October 25, 2018.

Previously, a segment aired on PBS Station 42 about the history of the annual barbeque and the many jobs and volunteers it takes to prepare and serve the amount of food that we do each year. A special THANK YOU to Jason Terzis of PBS for coming and spending time with us.

We look forward to seeing all you at the Community House on the fourth Thursday of October (10-25-18) to enjoy the barbeque, stew and fellowship this fall!

Working on the Serving Line

Some of the most venerable ladies in Mallard Creek history have worked on our serving line, creating delicious plates for folks who want to eat on the grounds and have fellowship with their food!  Esther Oehler, Jackie Oehler, Ethel Ranson, the list goes on.

While we do have some folks who migrate back to this line every year (including but not limited to Sharon Kimrey, Jackie Oehler if her health allows, Debbie Killian, Marlene Alexander Strong, Amber Kimrey, myself), we are always hoping to recruit other folks (men, you’re allowed to work alongside us if you like to chat!) to help serve and greet the guests.  Feel free to add a comment or send me an email if you’d like to volunteer on the serving line.  We love adding to our ranks (and we’re a very fun crew to work with).

See you on October 23th, 2014, 9a bright and early!
