Restaurant Story
Welcome to Big Al's BBQ! We are a family-run, independent restaurant offering the best quality smoked BBQ and homemade sides, in a fun, relaxed environment. We offer a great place to meet, eat and socialize for lunch or dinner, so please come on in, grab a booth or table, and enjoy yourselves!

In 2012 Big Al's was Hal n Al's Q & Catering. Al Laudencia and his Father in Law Hal Chase bought a smoker and started a dream of smoking meats and preparing the best catering experiences possible. After a few years, a few more smokers, and a food trailer, Hal and Al decided to part ways, causing the birth of Big Al's BBQ & Catering. 

Big Al Laudencia resides in Adel IA, with his wife Betsy and daughters, Taylor, Lily and Emma. Al has been in the restaurant industry for many years, and throughout this time he has lived in locations such as Kansas City and St. Louis MO, both contributed to his love of BBQ. Becuase of Al's amazing personality, cooking skills and business abilities, we introduce you to Big Al's BBQ & Catering. Our staff is hand picked and loved by each member of our family, we are strict about quality and ensure that your experience will be both mouth watering and to your fullest expectations.
