tupelo Introduces Wild Ember BBQ Pop-Up Restaurant

The latest venture from the renowned Chef Matt Harris, Wild Ember BBQ combines the chef’s fine-dining background with the deep flavors of his Southern roots for a unique pop-up style dining experience. The upscale smokehouse concept begins offering curbside and catering services at The Snow Park Residences at The St. Regis Deer Valley today, September 15.

“We’re excited to offer a fun, convenient pop-up restaurant to the Park City dining community with Wild Ember BBQ,” said Wild Ember BBQ Partner Maggie Alvarez. “The unique concept gives guests flexible options for everything from individual meals, a family picnic, to a large catered event, and we look forward to showcasing our original takes on traditional barbecue as well as signature smokehouse dishes for every palate.”

Designed to fuel a handful of friends or feed a large crowd, the Wild Ember BBQ menu highlights the seasonality of local agriculture while providing thoughtful vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Southern classics with surprising nuances abound with starters and sides like deviled eggs, jalapeño cornbread fritters, collard greens and passion fruit baked beans. Locally sourced meats, such as pulled Berkshire pork, smoked chicken, smoked elk sausage, Berkshire pork ribs and beef tri-tip are available by the portion, thoughtfully paired with housemade signature sauces like Cherry Ancho or Whiskey Peach. Sweet treats include decadent triple chocolate brownies, Rice Krispie cookies and Wasatch Creamery ice cream.

Curbside and catering services are available Wednesday – Saturday, 4 – 8 p.m. at the pop up location at The Snow Park Residences at The St. Regis Deer Valley beginning Wednesday, September 15 Although there is no dining room or seating available at this time, there are future plans for a brick-and-mortar location.
