A little more about Tati… 

Favorite thing about BBQ: What BBQ represents: family, community, slow cooking, joy, and hospitality.

Favorite thing about working for the Smoke Shop: Being a part of such a great, quickly developing, and diverse company. I also love working at our off-site catered and special events.

Where we can find you on a day off: As a big foodie, I’m always trying to visit new restaurants and try new cuisines. I also like to spend time outdoors and love biking, winter sports, and spending time with friends.
