BBQ and grilling has always been a part of our lives. We would often host our friends to a back yard BBQ, Georgia-style. After years of experimenting we thought we knew about good BBQ.
"BBQ Pitmasters" aired for the first time in the fall of 2009, and immediately we knew we had found a sport made just for us. We thought that if these old, out-of-shape country boys could do it, so could we. So we found the first BBQ competition we could and entered. It happened to be in our hometown of Dublin, GA (you can see pictures of this event in the photos section). After all of this, we had to come up with a name, so we posted on Facebook, asking what name would be good for us. Our friend Taylor Barlow from Augusta said, "Since you guys met at and go to church, why not Holy Smokes?" Holy Smokes it was.
At our first event in Dublin, we ended up with a 10th place call in pork loin. Little did we know what that one call would start. Through our adventures, we have met some wonderful people! The kind of people that would give the shirt off of their back for their fellow man. We have been blessed to have some of these people mentor us and help us to become who we are today. We can only hope to be the blessing to others that they have been to us and help lead the next generation of BBQ cooks.

BEST BBQ EVERRRR! it's not everyday you get to eat delicious bbq that has won a bunch of awards. so why would you go anywhere else?! -Erica D
Great little BBQ stand - off the beaten path but easy to get to! Good menu variety too - your standard sandwich/plate/dinner combos with pork, chicken, or ribs... or you can try a quesadilla? I tried the BBQ tacos and was not disappointed! Also, as we were passing through on our way home from the beach we were looking for a place we could take our dog. They have picnic tables set out under a canopy so it was really nice to be able to let him out and stretch for a bit. The lady working in the truck was so sweet about him being there too. I love finding places where our buddy is welcome to sit with us. Only thing to note is that there doesn't appear to be any sort of washroom available (but you could pop into the gas station across the street probably if you needed to). All in all a great spot! -Katrina M
Holy smokes is right! After seeing this place on the news voted #1 bbq in Ga. We had to try it and it truly is the best barbecue we've ever had. -Laurie K
Stopped for lunch. First time eating here. They threw in a Brunswick stew and a rib with the BBQ sandwich that I ordered. All that with a bottle drink for $4.59! Crazy good food! Rib was for first timers. I'll be back! -Steve O
