Barbecue is very popular at DoMundo’s, a churrascaria restaurant on the campus of this 33,000-student university. Executive Chef Eric Cartright says many of the recipes, including these, have been developed by Chef Jeremy Elmore, and DoMundo’s Original Recipe BBQ Sauce is now bottled and sold for retail by Dining Services. One application of the pulled pork recipe, Cartright says, is a pizza, using the sauce as the base and the pork as the meat component, along with red onion and mozzarella, provolone and pepper jack cheeses.

Ohio University Director of Culinary Services Rich Neumann was on Wednesday evening awarded NACUFS’ 49th annual Theodore W. Minah Distinguished Service Award, the association’s highest honor.

Neumann’s foodservice career began as an undergraduate at University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. After his first day as a student cook, he says, his production manager wanted to fire him because he was striving for perfection, not—as she put it—“now and fast.” But he kept with it, eventually moving up to student manager. “If I had quit, I would not be here today,” he says.
