Where did it all begin?

It all started with a trip to Austin, Texas, in 2012. A few days of the meat sweats and they were hooked. Two best friends, Sean and Duka, equipped with vast hospitality experience, embarked on a gastronomic adventure. The aim of the visit to the US was to eat at The Salt Lick Restaurant, and they did. Days of meat heaven obsession were spent poking and prodding the guys at Salt Lick to share in there BBQ wisdom! They learned that doing one thing, and being the best at that, is the key to success. Inspired and driven by their learning, the beginning stages of the Smoke BBQ storey took shape during that trip. Ten years on, now a Sheffield institution, is thriving and delivering exceptional BBQ and amazing service.

In 2013, Smoke BBQ opened its doors in Sheffield, Sean's home city and Duka's adopted home. Their passion and commitment to the project delivered what's become a landmark in the city's restaurant community. Sheffield’s known for its independent, owner operators; and Smoke BBQ is proud to be amongst some of those great establishments. Smoke's relaxed atmosphere truly reflects a genuine American BBQ joint....we just added a touch of Northern culture.
