About The Smoke Shop’s Pitmaster Dinner Series:

Every fall, The Smoke Shop hosts its popular Pitmaster Dinner Series where Andy invites his chef and barbecue friends (and some of the country’s best Chefs and Pitmasters) for a series of special barbecue inspired dinners. Each dinner features a different guest chef who designs the one-night only dinner menu to include appetizers and a 3-course family-style dinner. The 2019 series, in partnership with Maker’s Mark, will include dinners by Jamie Bissonnette, Leslie Scott and The BBQ Ninja, and Amy Mills and will feature a special Maker’s Mark cocktail. Past guest chefs have included Tuffy Stone, Chris Hart, Bill Gillespie, and Brian Treitman. Tickets to each dinner are limited and available on Eventbrite.
