Owego Hose Teams, Inc. is hosting their annual Fall Chicken Barbecue on Saturday, October 7, from 11:00 am till gone with pickup at Croton Hose Co. #3 Fire Station, 8 Talcott Street, on the Flats. Proceeds will benefit the Hose Team’s 1866 Amoskeag Steam Fire Engine Restoration and Steamer House project.

It has been a busy barbecue season for the Hose Team with multiple organizations benefitting from their culinary expertise. Rudin Family Farm & Doug Worthing benefits, Tioga County Historical Association and Museum, and most recently the Shady Strong ALS Awareness organization partnered with the Hose Team on chicken barbecues for the benefit of the community and its people.

“It is our pleasure and obligation as a civic minded organization to help,” said Hose Team Treasurer John Loftus. “These chicken barbecues are just another avenue for the Hose Team to provide assistance to those organizations and individuals who need a helping hand.”

The October barbecue will benefit the Hose Team’s steam fire engine restoration project. The menu includes “Cornell Chicken” halves, the Duke’s baked beans, salt potatoes, and Roma roll for $14. Take-out or drive-thru is available.

The Hose Team chicken barbeques typically sell out in an hour or two so preorder is strongly recommended. Preorder and pay online at the Hose Team website at under the “Events Tab,” via email at, or by calling 202-494-9108.

Chicken barbeques hosted by the Hose team are a family favorite in Owego. This central New York specialty was invented by Dr. Robert Baker, a Professor Emeritus of the Department of Animal Sciences at the New York State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University. The Hose Team sticks to the exact sauce receipt developed by Dr. Baker that is apple cider vinegar based.

Two Brother’s Pizza and Sub Shop Opens in Candor

Life-long friends from Candor’s ’84

Graduating Class, Terry Rose and Bartt Smith have teamed up to delve into creating a gathering place for young and old alike. A place where schoolmates, friends, and relatives can meet up, enjoy a slice of fresh prepared pizza or subs served on fresh in-house baked sub rolls, and experience a camaraderie that Rose and Smith have shared like brothers over the years.

During one of their conversations in 2021, both Rose and Smith realized they had a similar dream to give back to the community. “A lot of it truly has to do with the history of the town,” Smith said. “The things we’ve always loved, the special places there are and were, and what it was like growing up in Candor. And Terry’s passion for pizza! In truth, we want to be one of those places that become part of the community.”

Their love of food preparation, their social skills, and their passion to share their dream with others has culminated in their joint venture of the Two Brothers Pizza and Subs. Smith credits the help they’ve received in an effort to learn from others who have ‘been there’, including his cousin Matt, who owns Pour House Pub and Grill in Endicott, as well as Pete and Sherry Claire from Turkey Trot Acres, and Brewed Awakening. In additions, the “Two Brothers” appreciate the solid support they’ve received from other local people, businesses, and groups such as the Health Department, and the Village of Candor.

When asked what they envision the eatery to project, Rose commented, “My hope is people enjoy what we offer enough to make a connection with the community, provide a nice place for kids, families, and to be able to share our success by giving back to the community.”

And many in the community have been all but holding their breath waiting for opening day. Asked what has taken so long, their response was that the down-side of the site being a historic building (the old Candor Town Hall/ Candor Market), meant that there were unforeseen layers and changes required

to bring the building up to date, and up to code. The actual reconstruction of the interior layout to provide easy ordering, and a comfortable environment for their customers, took much deliberation and construction and time. And with any new food establishment, it required contacting multiple vendors.

“Most of our inventory will come from local suppliers with ties to local producers,” Rose stated. “Our goal is to keep things local as much as practically possible.”

“Our main attraction will be our wood-fired pizza oven that is directly behind the counter which will allow customers to watch the pizzas being created and tended to through the quick cooking process,” Smith said. “The majority of the remaining kitchen, including the double decker stone pizza oven, will be open - there will be no doors blocking the view of the kitchen, allowing interaction between the cooks and the customers.”

Daily specials are currently in the developmental stage. However, a wing night will be one of their highlights, as well as offering specialty pizzas on a weekly basis. The two concur that they will not be serving alcohol of any kind, and there will be no smoking allowed inside the building.

To start with, they plan to be open 11am to 8pm, Tuesday and Wednesday; and 11am to 9pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Parking and entrances to the establishment will be both in front of and behind the building. As for paying for your orders, the Two Brothers will have a POS card system that ties into their ordering system. There will be a customer-facing screen to review orders while they are placed. Once the establishment opens, food can be ordered and picked up at the counter, or phoned in for pick-up by calling 607-659-4455.

Rose and Smith are hoping to hold an Open House during the Fall Festival. To keep posted and find out what’s happening, visit their website at: https:// or visit their FB page: Two Brothers Pizza and Subs.
