HGTV’s Ben Napier spent Thursday, January 12 hard at work Scotsman General Store & Woodshop, the haberdashery and lumber shop he owns and runs with his wife and “Hometown” co-host Erin Napier. Having left the store later than expected, Ben was pleased to see Team JD Q BBQ – who were selling their food on the Scotsman Company lawn this weekend – also still hard at work.
“I left the lumber shop late this evening and saw #TeamJDQ still cooking on the lawn,” Ben wrote on his Instagram story about a video of Team JD Q grilling a large steak: “This is the best steak I’ve had in a long time. They do dinner on Thursday and Friday nights!! On the lawn at [Scotsman General Store].”

A poster shared with the Scotsman Company Instagram story promoted the event which took place on Friday evening January 13th and which was also attended by Team JD BBQ Papa Dough’s Pizzaa food truck serving wood-fired pizza.
The Napiers wrote about Papa Dough’s in her blog and called it “by far the most inventive and delicious pizza you’ll try in Laurel.” The Napiers mention that all the dough is made by hand, they do gluten-free pizza, and they have some really interesting toppings, including pickles.
