Hey Ya'll my name is Jason Geane owner & chef of SSBBQ.
Smoking Soul BBQ was hatched over a decade ago after a couple of years learning the way of the smoke. Here in the Northeast we have fairly average BBQ, slathered with sauce, and all tasting about the same.
I was just sick of that…
I have been cooking at my Grandma’s knee since I was a boy. About 13 years ago I got very interested in BBQ and bought my first smoker. I played around for a couple of years and got the hang of it. People started to ask me to bring this or that to parties. This went on for a few more years and before you know it I was catering small parties.
I wanted something different in my BBQ so I worked the next years on creating my own methods, rubs, sauces, wood mix, and standard recipes. I call it Latin Caribbean Soul food. These are most of the heavy influences in cooking in my life rolled into one concept centered on a classic slow and low BBQ approach.
Late 2015 Smoking Soul BBQ was formed and clients loved my approach to BBQ. I do not get into the argument are you KC, Carolina, Texas, Memphis, blah blah blah… What I am is great food prepared from my soul to your table. I do not care about trophies and 10 burly guys judging my smoke rings. You will not see me in competitions. My client’s smiles and referrals are what matter to me.
I am passionate about what I do, the quality & service I give my clients, and making you satisfied.
Let me bring our soul to your table and make your party a success!!!
