Matchsticks BBQ Co. In The Media
We are very thankful for these features! If you would like to feature Matchsticks BBQ Co. please feel free to get in touch!
The recipe for great barbecue is part art, part science and part sleep deprivation. Five nights a week, Matt Sileno wakes up every hour to check on his smoker over a 14-hour cooking period, making sure the temperature stays constant and precise to produce a clear smoke for flavoring. “Otherwise, you can get a chemical taste on the meat,” Matt says. “I’m a big stickler about it. I baby my smoker. A lot of people think you can just light up some wood, throw the meat on and let it ride, but barbecue is a really hard craft. No cook is the same. It takes a lot of steps, time and patience.”
When Matt and Nicole Sileno got married at the Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg in March 2017, they had their big day catered by an award-winning food truck named Cured.
Their friends and family enjoyed beet salad, macaroni and cheese, pork belly and a short-rib dish with a view of rolling countryside.
The couple stayed in touch with the caterers, even as they began making plans to open their own food truck in Williamsburg. When Cured owners Jeremy Thrasher and Tarek Kipry announced they were taking jobs as restaurant chefs in Washington, the Silenos reached out and made them an offer.
Virginia BBQ Trail
Husband and wife team Matt and Nicole Sileno were on their honeymoon in Bora Bora last April when they took a hard look at the quality of their lives.
They quickly realized they were not chasing their dreams and decided it was time for big changes. They had been visiting Williamsburg for the past five years for Nicole’s birthday to enjoy a meal at their favorite restaurant, the Fat Canary and fell in love with everything about the area. To them it was a no-brainer they wanted to live near Williamsburg instead of Northern Virginia, so they worked with Wendy and Matthew Gonzalez of the Wendy Walker Realty team and made their new home in Toano.
We'd love to hear from you! Let us know if you have any catering, menu, or location questions.
