About Jeff

Chief BBQ Officer, aka “The Smoker Guy”

After spending almost three decades in the corporate world, holding a variety of senior leadership roles and traveling extensively throughout the country, Jeff has turned his attention to being a devoted father to his two daughters. He founded and created Smokin’ Deal BBQ in 2013, and his extreme passion as a barbeque enthusiast and aficionado really shines. Jeff started smoking meats in the early 90’s and since that time, he’s never looked back! He continues his pursuit of excellence by offering up BBQ consulting & expertise for new and seasoned cooks alike.

He’s a certified Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) judge and has competed in dozens of local, National, International and World Championship BBQ competitions as a Pitmaster. Most recently, he cooked with the Boars Night Out team at Memphis in May (aka The Superbowl of BBQ), and they placed 2nd in the World in the Whole Hog Category. In addition, he was a co-pitmaster with nutthin’ BUTT pork at The American Royal (aka The World Series of BBQ). The team placed 10th in Chicken and tied for 16th in ribs, from a field of over 400 US and 10 International entries!

When you want to talk about cooking and smokers, Jeff’s other moniker, “The Smoker Guy” takes on a whole new dimension.
