I am Ernie Mellor, Owner and Pitmaster of HOG WILD & A Moveable Feast Catering Co. I was a member at GPC from 1963 until 2011. My father was the minister there, my mother, Lalla Mellor, is still a member as are my sister Lalla and her husband John Colmer. I am a member at Woodland Presbyterian now but have deep roots in and love for your congregation.
During the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn the hospitality business has been hurt tremendously. Our industry includes hotels, attractions, and restaurants/caterers. As the economy slowly opens back up, we are still alive. The catering business is open for any size party that you may like to entertain, but the reality is most folks are not having these events right now.
My company has had to adapt our business model to the times in order to survive. We are offering great food items delivered to your door Tuesdays thru Saturday. If you place your order on any given day before 2pm, we will deliver the next day between 3-5pm. Or you can order today and schedule delivery a few days out. The food items are geared towards 4 servings of each. The food comes to you cold and most items are vacuum sealed or in deli containers. We follow all Shelby County Health Department safety protocols and deliver the food with gloves on and wearing a mask.
Some of the more popular items are our Smoked Turkey Breast, Smoked Chicken Salad, Pulled Pork, Baby Back Ribs, Sliced Brisket, Chipotle Pimento Cheese, and many more proteins, side dishes, and condiments.
We also offer ‘themed kits’ as specials. The Father’s Day Kit has 4-1# bone-in, locally farm-raised, pork chops, side dishes, dessert, and a great chef’s apron. In this particular kit, the pork chops are raw and come with our professional grilling instructions.
