Inspired by some of the best restaurants and pitmasters in the United States, Southside Smokers use time-honoured techniques and traditional cooking methods to produce world-class, award-winning barbecue from their trailer-mounted Ole Hickory smoker.

Owners, Matt and Margaret Vitale formed Southside Smokers to compete in US-style barbecue competitions and have cooked with and learned from the best pitmasters around. Working with pitmaster Jan Wristen, Southside Smokers are now serving up wood-smoked barbecue favourites.
