Mason-Dixon is a barbecue supply store. It sells and rents commercial BBQ equipment for church gatherings, large groups, charity events and fundraisers.  It also rents out portable LP fryers and sink units. The business carries the Big Green Egg line of home cookers and smokers.

It also has a myriad of BBQ accessories and carries sauces and spices used by competitive teams on the KCBS barbecue circuit. The company is also a distributor for Royal Oak hardwood charcoal briquettes and lump charcoal.

Future plans include offering opportunities for people to enroll in a BBQ boot camp to learn more about the art of barbecue cooking through using various sauces and spices and their equipment.
