Chris Hadley – Southern Smoke Catering

Hey folks!  My name is Chris Hadley and I’m passionate about great BBQ.  That’s the reason I took my hobby of barbecuing from the backyard to sharing it with those that live smoked meats and sides as much as I do.


I started four years ago learning from others about the perfect art of making great que and I also became a certified BBQ judge at the same time through the Kansas City Barbecue Society.  I’ve gone around the country and have tasted some BBQ that is awesome and some that isn’t.  While judging BBQ I’ve learned what people like and so I took it to the next level last year and competed in a KCBS event.  Our team did pretty good but competing was still not really sharing my passion for others, so I started Southern Smoke BBQ Catering in 2017.


Check out our menu and let us cater your next event.  I promise you or your guests won’t be disappointed!  As I like to say “Let Southern Smoke put some South in your mouth!”

Thanks for checking us out!
