We started as a competition BBQ team named Fat Angel BBQ in 2007, cooking at contests throughout the Northeast. After a very successful inaugural season, in which we won Rookie of the Year honors, we opened Local Smoke BBQ, our full-service catering company. Local Smoke BBQ quickly became one of New Jersey's most popular BBQ caterers and in 2011, opened its first two BBQ restaurants.
Our competition BBQ team has represented New Jersey at contests all over the country including Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Georgia, Nevada and in almost every state from Virginia to Vermont. We have collected over 100 awards including 4 New Jersey State Championship titles. Other highlights include 1st place in Ribs against 488 teams at the American Royal BBQ contest in Kansas City (which is also known as the World Series of BBQ) and 1st place in Brisket at the National BBQ Festival in Douglas, GA.
Our philosophy is simple. The mission of Local Smoke BBQ is to provide authentic, award winning, slow-smoked BBQ and incredible service in a fun and clean atmosphere with outstanding service. We are a customer first company and the same passion that goes intos winning BBQ competitions goes into winning over our customers. We invite you to visit and enjoy Local Smoke BBQ!
