Midway UMC is renowned for its Chicken BBQ sale, held annually. For two days, drive anywhere nearby and you’ll smell the church before you see it. We like to think of it as God’s way of advertising for us.
In the weeks leading up to the sale, you’ll see buttons on the right side of this page where you can make either a business order for Friday morning (we’ll deliver as many delicious plates as you like to your employees, at the time you need them delivered), or individual orders for pickup Saturday morning. Plates must be ordered in advance; the deadline for business orders and individual orders is the Sunday before the sale. If the order buttons are not visible on this page, the order deadline has passed and you may try to purchase plates by walk-up on Saturday morning. We’ll make a few extra for walkups, but when they’re gone, they’re gone til the next sale!
Each plate consists of half of a BBQ chicken – each weighing 18 to 22 oz. – which is smoked all night long in our BBQ pit and then hand-dipped in the special recipe BBQ sauce. Our famed baked beans are also made on-site, with ground chuck, onions, bell peppers and other secret ingredients! Add slaw and a slice of Texas toast, and you have heaven on a plate…and a tremendous value for just $8.00!
And while you’re here picking up your reserved plates, take some time to choose delectable desserts from our bake sale. You’ll find some legendary recipe creations…just like mama made.
