Holy Smokes began as a crazy idea from a few friends sitting around talking about their love of BBQ. We kept saying “What if we created our own BBQ event?” Ironically, our parish was also looking for new ideas for a school fundraiser. After a few fact finding meetings, a few research trips to local BBQ establishments and a few deep breaths, we began to plan our inaugural event. What happened next is the stuff of BBQ legend. We actually got our event sanctioned by the KCBS, had a bunch of great teams sign up and hosted thousands of people for one of the most amazing days of BBQ and fun we had ever experienced. We are ready to do it all over again in 2017. Only this time, it’s gonna’ be even bigger and better. We invite you to join us this year for what we hope will become the premiere BBQ event in Cincinnati.
