Originally hailing from Vermont, Tess Jutras moved to Boston to attend Boston University and graduated in 2019 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: The way that it brings people together! BBQ means something different to everyone and we all have our own special memories associated with it.

What she loves most about working for The Smoke Shop: I love our team. Every 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 home trying out a new recipe or scrolling through TikTok and Instagram, spending time outside, or spending time with my loved ones.

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