Smokin’ Jim’s Bar-B-Que

The Story: Smokin’ Jim is a super friendly, big bear of a man with a big grin and one seriously big BBQ, Bar-B-Que,  Barbecue, or however you want to spell it.  For example, Jim’s smoker, attached to the back of his cart, is the size of a mid-sized automobile. You just know an outfit like this honors the history and culture of the ‘Q.

Needless to say, Jim smokes everything himself including chicken, pulled pork, beef brisket, and pork ribs alongside a whole bunch of smoked sausages such as brats, hot links, smokies, and even hot dogs.

Jim is an equal opportunity smoker.
