The Candied Rib Company is so, so delicious. They do deliveries and are great about keeping the community feed during this pandemic. Lisa and Craig are such nice people and very welcoming. They give back to the community and stand behind their products. I am a big fan of their food. They are do catering and pay attention to dietary restrictions. I appreciate the care and love they put into their business. It shows in the quality of their food.

Absolutely Delicious !!!! 🥣🌮💯😋 Gen-You-Wine Texas Smoked Brisket Chili Tacos, Cowboy Pintos, and Mexican Rice, served with diced onion and shredded cheddar. This chili was made with five different chili's (no chili powder), no tomatoes, and no beans...it is truly original. By far one of my favorites now. Milo was even smelling it and giving me a look like " YOU BETTER SHARE THAT" ... LOL 😁😂 If you haven't tried Lisa & Craig's delicious cooking You NEED TO !!! They also do catering so you know when they set a plate in front of your guest they will be amazed. Thank you Always Lisa & Craig for feeding all us ladies locked up in our office. We Love what your doing.

I crazy love these guys. Used them twice for the company Christmas party and just had them deliver to my home during the Safer at Home period. I think their brisket is the tastiest meat ever and their side are phenomenal. Both the dry and candied ribs are excellent! Totally recommend them! #brisketlove

About Us

The husband and wife team behind 
The Candied Rib Company, Craig and Lisa Dudinetz, have delivered memorable experiences through the highest level of customer service for years. Craig was trained in the culinary arts locally at The Opryland Hotel Culinary Institute, and graduated in 1999. His passion has always been Barbecue. 

Craig had been working for years on a unique barbecue experience and came up with “The Candied Rib” which uses a proprietary process to coat baby back ribs with a hard candy shell. The combination of sweet and savory, added to the smoke and his homemade rubs, as well as the unexpected crunch is something totally unique!  

Lisa went to school in South Florida at Nova Southeastern University and earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 2002. She  has worked in the service and management fields of the food industry for almost 20 years, and has been the driving force behind the sales and marketing aspect of The Candied Rib Company. 

With the current business model, Craig cooks up daily lunch box specials and Lisa delivers them to businesses around Mount Juliet Monday through Friday 11-2 or until sold out. 

The goal was to get to know our community and let them taste our food before we committed to a location. We are in the process of finding a brick and mortar here in Mount Juliet. Stay tuned!
