Greetings! My name is Jennifer Falck and I am formally submitting my bio for consideration as a Board Member for the MN BBQ Society. Please enjoy learning a little bit about me and how I would make a great board member for your wonderful organization.
My husband, Matt Falck and I founded Lucky Brisket BBQ in 2012, after becoming big fans of the show “BBQ Pitmasters”. We dreamed of how much fun it would be to compete in contests, and hopefully do well enough to win. Our first official competition was in Owatonna at Smokin’ in Steele. We were next to Moe Cason, which was pretty awesome. At our first MN BBQ Society contest, we placed 9th in Pork. We were hooked instantly. From there on, we have placed in numerous other contests, and have had a blast while doing it. Since Matt got the bug to make BBQ his career, he has started his own food truck in May, that travels all around the St. Paul area, numerous brew pubs and festivals in Minnesota. While he is doing that, I am his go to person for Social Media, and scheduling events for Lucky Brisket to work. This year has been a trip and it’s awesome that this small dream of ours has been a success. We have gained a following, and people who think that grilling is BBQ, are surprised to taste what real BBQ tastes like. We have had many compliments on our style of BBQ, even from people in Texas (who are reluctant to try northern BBQ).
For my full time career, I am an Interior Designer/Remodeling Designer for a Design/Build Firm based in the Twin Cities. I design spaces for my clients, schedule and organize projects, and see them through to completion.
While being in charge of Lucky Brisket’s social media and scheduling, I have brought our small business from nothing to being quite busy. We are scheduling events already into next year! What I would bring to the Board would be my organizational skills. I am a master at scheduling, multi-tasking, and I’ve been known to be “scrappy”. I love meeting new people, being a positive person, and getting my love of BBQ out to everyone I meet. I am friendly, and people that I compete with I consider my friends.
I’ve grew up in Wisconsin, and have been married for over 20 years. Matt and I have a 17 year old son named Daunte, who you will see at numerous competitions. Because Lucky Brisket has been so busy, I have formed a team with another competitors wife, Tracey Heymer, and we have formed the team “Better Half BBQ”. You will see our debut at “Fire On Ice BBQ”, this coming March.
Thank you so much for your consideration. I hope that I have earned your vote.
