BACKYARD SMOKERSYear Started: 2015
MATT KERN EMILY HERBETTE ADAM MILLER RYAN HAYSTINGS Our story started back in October of 2014, that is where Mark and I had met. There I was just starting out in a new job. My co-worker Mark from Arkansas comes into my office with a plate of ribs and says do you like BBQ? I said well of course I do.....he looked at me funny seeing how I was from the northeast. Some time had past maybe a month or so and I said to myself well time to repay the favor. So I brought my version of BBQ in and said Mark would you like to try some ribs? He looked at me kind of funny seeing how I was guy from the northeast. Well needless to say it was all over from there. We continued to play the game of ok I need to one up the guy. After a while we decided we should just work together, and from that Backyard Smokers was born.
