Nick Hancock of OK Charley's Craft Barbecue

OK Charley’s Craft Barbecue Launches at Haddonfield Farmers Market

Nick Hancock, 33, of Sicklerville, has been honing his skills in barbecue for the past eight years. His passion was ignited during childhood. He has fond memories of his father preparing delectable pulled pork and briskets in the Washington Township home he grew up in.

As an adult, he dedicated himself to studying barbecue, learning everything about it. He even embarked on pilgrimages to renowned barbecue establishments nationwide, immersing himself in their flavorful offerings and eagerly absorbing wisdom from esteemed pitmasters.

In 2023, Nick felt it was time to bring his Texas-style craft barbecue to the public. He started OK Charley’s with a vision to feed mouthwatering wood-fired barbecue, scratch sides, and house-made pickled goods to anybody who wants it.

A pop-up at the Haddonfield Farmers Market through Fall is the proving ground, where Nick will offer platters of wood-fired meats with sides and sandwiches. A la carte items are available as well. See the menu below.

Nick, who still works a full-time job, is just happy to be able to cook for people and introduce them to his delicious barbecue. Who knows what the future holds, but for now, check out OK Charley’s at the Haddonfield Farmers Market from 8:30-1:30 or until sell-out, and let us know what you think!

P.S. The inspiration behind OK Charley’s name is his beloved Siberian Husky, Charley. How cute!
