My must-have ingredient would probably be the local beef from Maui Cattle Co. We use Maui Cattle Co. for our burgers, brisket, sliders and beef stew. It’s a locally grass fed beef and it’s leaner than grain fed and has a little more earthy taste. We have a new menu launching in about two weeks. Some of the highlights will include my favorite, the Black Rock Lager braised brisket. The Pineapple Tofu Curry will be another new item on our menu, created by Sous Chef James Furnish. This is a great dish because it’s vegetarian but you can add chicken or shrimp to it.



Sanitation is critical. Make sure to change your sanitizer bucket water every four hours and use clean towels every time you change the water.
