New BBQ restaurant has 'local first' mentality

PEORIA HEIGHTS, Ill. - The new Slow Hand Craft BBQ restaurant calls itself a "fast casual" place with a made to order meal. 

From smoked brisket to macaroni and cheese, they have all the fixings for a comfort food restaurant. The restaurant recently opened its doors to the public Aug. 15.

"We try to run out of food every day," owner Ryan Smith said. "Everything is smoked every day, and we make a certain amount. And whenever we run out, we run out."

And the restaurant has a "local first" mentality, opting to buy their ingredients from places right here in Central Illinois.

Slow Hand Craft BBQ is located 4450 N Prospect Road in Peoria Heights.
