SmokeyDs BBQDarren Warth Our business continues to grow and as I’ve told you before, it’s all based on word-of-mouth and our participation in the contests.

In an average week, we will use 2,500 lbs. of Boston butts (pork shoulder) for our barbecue pulled pork sandwich offerings.

We go through 1,200 racks of St. Louis style ribs very week (we don’t buy baby back ribs – they’re too expensive and there isn’t enough meat on the bones). Although our pork comes from different sources, we’ve learned where we can get consistent quality.

I’ve been asked why is barbecue is spelled so many ways and I don’t why. That’s why our restaurant is simply Smokey D’s BBQ!
