Our Passion Is Born

Every business has a beginning, and this is where we begin.   Our family is rooted in Southeast Missouri with relatives in every county.  Family gatherings always consisted of a meal to bring everyone together.  The passion was born to prepare the best and to share it.

Smokin Brothers started in the fall of 2005 at the Hermann, MO BBQ and Brats Festival.  Ryan and Craig formed the team of Smokin Brothers to compete in the KCBS contest not knowing what we were getting into. On Saturday morning we called Adam in for some help and luckily David showed up in the afternoon. We didn’t get a call but we were hooked just the same. Now several years and several contests later we’ve had a few calls and are taking our enjoyment of BBQ to a whole new level.

Let’s Get Down To Business

Our starting of Smokin Brothers, Inc. in 2008 was in response to all of the positive feedback and praises we have received from friends, family and fellow BBQers.  We started offering our Butt the Kitchen SinkTM rub because that is what we were using the most when we were cooking at our family BBQs and at competitions. Little did we know that we would get such an enthusiastic following and requests for additional products. Since then we have added our Plus the Kitchen SinkTM to satisfy those looking for a little kick and Smokin Brothers Original BBQ SauceTM  to complement the rubs.

Bring on the American Made Wood Pellet Grills

In 2011, Smokin Brothers expanded its product offerings to Smokin BrothersTM 100% Pure Unblended Natural Wood Pellets and American Made Smokin BrothersTM Pellet Grills. Smokin Brothers was looking for pellets that provided more smoke flavor and bettter consitency without any luck. So we decided to start our own line that would be pure wood with no blends. The pellets give you a distinct smoke flavor, but also allow you to blend the pellets if you want a more complex flavor profile.

Our family has been competing and cooking on wood pellet grills for several years but have always found issues with each grill we used. The family has come together and designed a line of grills that perform to all of our specifications, by holding a constant temp, have plenty of grill space and are built in America with quality and care in mind. We have been using these grills at our competitions and our family cookouts with great success.
