Woodpile BBQ Shack partners Scott Moloney and Zac Idzikowski are bringing on Steve "Bubba" Coddington as pitmaster and general manager. Coddington was previously pitmaster at Lockharts BBQ in Royal Oak and was voted 2013 BBQ Person of the Year by Grilling with Rich.
Moloney, who's also the founder of the rapidly expanding (Seriously, does this guy ever sleep?) Treat Dreams empire, tells Eater that Woodpile is now "targeting an August opening but will begin catering immediately." Moloney adds that the ice cream and barbecue stand is currently awaiting final site approval, which is expected to come through June 23. After that, the partners will begin focusing on build-out.
