The BIG Announcement (and why we’re liquidating)

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

After a lot of thinking and planning, big changes are coming to Yoder’s Smoky Mountain Barbecue, our Meadow Creek dealership in Kalona, Iowa.

In short, this is what’s happening:

  1. 1. Yoder’s Smoky Mountain Barbecue is closing permanently. Yes, no kidding!
  2. 2. I, Lavern Gingerich, have secured a position with Meadow Creek as their online marketing agent.

You may be reading this because you have an interest in Meadow Creek’s smokers and grills.

If so, what this change means for you:

  1. 1. Once our dealership closes, you will need to find another dealer to work with (see Meadow Creek’s dealer locator here), but don’t worry. As Meadow Creek’s online brand ambassador, our job is to make sure you are taken care of.
  2. 2. We will be able to crank out more and better content around Meadow Creek equipment in 2017, which should be a lot of fun.

Why we’re doing it:

It can take a lot of time on the phone to sell high ticket items. Marlin (my brother who ran the dealership) was having a hard time closing enough sales to make it work, and he finally decided he’d rather find something else to do than overcome the challenges of growing a business.

Why this is better:

It makes a lot more sense for me to work directly for Meadow Creek, serving the entire network of dealers. The extensive work we have put into educating people about Meadow Creek should really be done at the corporate level. Second, by working with the manufacturer directly, we now have the resources we need to bring more awareness and education to the market than before.

We want to thank each of our customers who supported our dealership in the last ten years. It’s been a great journey and we sincerely appreciate your business.

We are still taking orders and servicing pending orders, and still have a nice selection of smaller units at our warehouse for local pickup at liquidation prices.

Click here for our inventory list with prices.

I look forward to working more closely with Melvin and Ivan, the owners of Meadow Creek Welding, keeping you in the loop with interesting articles and stories and the latest in product development.

I can’t tell you everything yet, but I can say this—it’s BIG!

Sizzling regards,

Lavern Gingerich

Meadow Creek Equipment Inventory Update

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015


Do you wish you could see a Meadow Creek in real life? Run your fingers over the smooth welds? Lift the lids made for muscles? Smell the steel and paint combination of a brand new rig? I’m excited to announce that we brought in another nice load of Meadow Creek inventory at our barbecue store in Kalona, Iowa. This is the place to shake hands with your dream smoker or grill! :)

Here is a list of what we have in inventory now. These are available for pickup today. Even if you don’t see exactly what you want in this list, it’s still an honorable experience to be in the company of so many Meadow Creek smokers, grills, and pig roasters.


Meadow Creek Trip 2014

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Meadow Creek Auction

Our annual trip to Meadow Creek has become a fun tradition for us. Melvin always schedules Dealer Day on a Thursday, the same week they host a KCBS judging class, a benefit auction, and Meadow Creek Open House. The judging class is Friday morning; in the afternoon, they always have a large benefit auction. The food stand is open all day where they sell barbecue lunches, Amish-made pies and ice cream, and other goodies as a fund-raiser for medical bills. Open House is always a big deal on Saturday, where Meadow Creek gives away thousands of barbecue meals.

The meat for the judging class, food stand, and open house is cooked on-site with Meadow Creek chicken cookers and pig roasters and a Southern Pride smoker.

Friday and Saturday they had some people demoing different smokers and grills, including Big Green Eggs and a Meadow Creek TS250 Smoker and a TS70P Smoker.

Yoder's Smoky Mountain Barbecue in Kalona, Iowa

I just want to let you know that Yoder’s Smoky Mountain Barbecue has moved! Marlin has moved our dealership from Tennessee to Kalona, IA. He’s about 7 miles out of Iowa City and surrounded by Des Moines, Davenport, and Cedar Rapids.

Marlin wants to beef up his Meadow Creek inventory and keep an even nicer selection in stock than we had in TN. If you’re thinking of swinging by, you might want to call or email before you drive a long distance since he’s still trying to get settled since the move.


Meadow Creek Cabinet Smoker Is Live

Monday, January 20th, 2014


I just want to let everyone know that Meadow Creek has just finished developing a brand new cabinet smoker.

As you probably know, box smokers are smashing contests right now. They are also popular with backyarders because they’re compact, easy to use, and efficient to run.

Combined with Meadow Creek’s 30+ year tradition of outstanding quality and service, this new box smoker is setting the woods on fire!

Melvin chose two of his friends to test this smoker last summer. The agreement was that they could use the smoker for free, if they bring it back at the end of the season and give their feedback before Meadow Creek launches it to the public.

One of these guys is a backyarder. At the end of the season, he said, “You can’t have this thing back. It works so well, I’m keeping it!” Melvin gave in and sold it to him.

Doesn’t that say a lot about Meadow Creek’s design process and their quality of work? The guy couldn’t help but fall in love with the smoker already at the testing stage.

I just talked with Melvin at Meadow Creek, and he told me they’ve already sold 25 of these smokers. He is surprised at how fast this thing is taking off. They even have three custom commercial trailers in design stage right now with these smokers on the drawing.

This smoker will appeal to backyarders, competitors, and even commercial chefs.

What did you think of the videos? Meadow Creek makes some amazing smokers, pig roasters, chicken cookers, and grills. All this equipment is made in the Amish Community of Lancaster County, PA. The talented craftsmen at Meadow Creek hand-make each unit. They seriously go the extra mile to make sure you’re smoked pink. What really puts the sauce on the brisket is all the revolutionary features and options that make barbecue fun and easy, and even a money-machine, if BBQ is your business.
Integrity: Meadow Creek cookers are made in a culture of Godly ethics—honesty, diligence, and fairness. Whether it’s a Shoo-fly pie or a barbecue smoker, you will be treated right.
Stainless Steel Grates: Every Meadow Creek barbecue cooker comes standard with non-rusting stainless steel grates. This eliminates the hassle of scrubbing rust and the danger of possible rust contamination on your meat.
