History of 2 B Smokiní
We had been thinking of starting some type of vending & catering business targeting BBQ since we have been on a BBQ competition team based out of Olathe, Kansas for the last seven years. Our team name is B & C Smokers. Barry & Barb for the (B) and Barb's sister Claudia & her husband Cortney for the (C) part of the team.
The team has had success in placing in the top ten at some events and a Reserve Grand Champion at a contest in Overland Park, Kansas and Grand Champion at another contest in Overland Park, Kansas.
With any sport, it takes a lot of time and funding to support a BBQ team. We are both certified BBQ judges as well.
We decided since we like to BBQ we wanted to expand into the actual selling of the product instead of preparing it and presenting it to the judges at a competition.
Instead of buying a turn key operation, we decided to buy a step van and build it to our specifications.
We have a backwoods smoker that is mounted permanent in a trailor which we will pull with our van to our vending sites.
We had tossed around several names for the business which we considered, but Barry's brother Benny & his daughter Morgan came up with the name 2 B Smokiní. The logo includes a branding iron since we have a cow/calf operation .
We will be targeting vending & caterings and we will still do some competition contests, but on a very small scale.
This is how 2 B Smokin' was formed.
