The Best

BBQ on the Shore!

Richard "Ric" Brice began his affinity for cooking and BBQ at a young age, and like most accomplished chefs, did so through teaching themselves in the kitchen, tasting, tweaking, and trying again. 40 years later, that early interest has matured into some of the best BBQ beef, pork and chicken on the Eastern Shore.

About Us

Hot Off the Coals serves up all the traditional BBQ items, including "Slaughter House" Brisket, Pit Beef, ham and turkey, along with Pulled Pork, both Texas and Carolina style, plus ribs and chicken with all the fixins' to complete a great meal.

Using hand select Certified Angus Beef, Chicken and Pork, Hot Off The Coals offers an amazing variety of perfectly seasoned grilled and slow cooked sandwiches and platters.  In addition to great bar-b-que, Hot Off The Coals also offers salads, subs, and some of the best you've ever tasted sides - Ric's Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, Green Beans and more.

Hot Off The Coals is available on Rt. 50 between Preston and Denton Rd. Hot Off The Coals is great either to dine in, carry-out or even for your next event - yes, they cater too!

A strong supporter of the community that has helped Ric and his partner Sandra Jordan, Hot Off The Coals is a sponsor of the men's softball team, and long time supporter and vendor at First Night Talbot and the Waterfowl Festival in Easton Maryland.

When Ric and Sandra aren't at the Easton location or off-site catering, they also like to participate in competition cooking events or on a rare occasion, enjoy the company of their 4 grown children.
