Here is our story...

Smokin' Tex BBQ got its start in 2012. Tex, being from the great state of Texas has always been a Bbq'er. When he decided to start doing competitions he received lots of  encouragement from family and friends especially his wife Chistine and step son Bryan Beatty.

In September of 2012, the team entered it's first competition in Mt Holly NJ where they scored 7th in Pork. That first call gave Tex the bug and he knew that's what he wanted to do!   Tex took the time to learn, taking classes and learning from his competitors. The team continued to improve  and grow each year from it's humble beginnings in 2012.

In 2013 Smokin Tex' added a trailer and a new larger Backwoods Smoker dubbed "The Big Green Machine!" 


In 2014 Tex upgraded to a new larger trailer and added new team member Dave Karch to the line up.   

2015 showed the to be the team's best finish yet at the Smokin Hot BBQ Championship in Atlantic City NJ.  This event is a qualifier for "The JacK!" a world championship.  Smokin' Tex finished 5th over all out of 46 teams with less the 10 points separating them from from 1st place and scored a 1st place in chicken. Near the end of the 2015 season Tex asked team member Joe Gogan to join the team full time.

Smokin' Tex continues to keep a Grand Championship in site and continues to "Put the south in your mouth!
