Gordon Biffle Jr. doesn’t go to work anymore! He’s just doing what he loves to do. If that sounds like a contradiction, meet the King of Barbecue. Gordon is known for “Big Daddy’s” Award-Winning Barbecue!” Gordon and his wife Darquia own this popular brand with two locations, one in Gary and one in Hammond. Gordon started barbecuing at a Gary flea market where he became a local celebrity. Today, his fans include none other than Steve Harvey. In fact, Gordon had been nominated 7 times for Steve’s awards. He’s won twice, once in 2010 and again in 2013. After Gordon had done some catering for Steve at NBC studios, the iconic TV host said, “I’ve got to meet this guy.” In fact, Gordon and Quia were en route to a vacation in Vegas when she got the call. His manager said, “Steve wants Gordon on the show tomorrow!” So they flew back and Gordon was on Steve’s show. Gordon’s humanity is also part of his secret sauce. Gordon donated food for Steve’s mentoring program involving 300 mothers and their sons. He loves it when kids hug him at supermarkets. And he encourages people to dream big and work hard. His big heart is matched by a determination to exceed his customer’s expectations! “I stay awake nights thinking of ways to make my barbecue better,” Gordon said.
