Originally hailing from rural Vermont, Tess Jutras moved to Boston to attend Boston University and recently graduated with a Communications degree, landing her first post-grad role here at The Smoke Shop BBQ. Her past experience includes internships at Image Unlimited Communications, All Heart PR, and more, most recently managing social media at Roxy’s Grilled Cheese before joining our team full-time.


As our Marketing and Special Events Coordinator, she handles all of our marketing efforts including managing our social media accounts, deploying our regular newsletter, and working closely with our management team, catering team, and Andy on charity events and special events like our BBQ and whiskey classes.


A little more about Tess:


Favorite thing about BBQ:Definitely the way that it brings people together. Plus each person you talk to holds a different opinion about what makes the best BBQ.


What she loves most about working for The Smoke Shop:Aside from the food, (the BBQ Bowl with Pulled Chicken is my go-to) my favorite thing is that each day is different and at the end of the day, we’re all a big family here.


Where you can find her on a day off:You can usually find me at the gym, cooking or eating out, or pet-sitting!


Favorite thing to cook:Literally any recipe from Bon Appetit – I have yet to try one that I haven’t loved.
