RUBICON BBQ was founded on the irrevocable commitment to helping its customers master the journey of smoking meats to the point of no return. This journey is fueled by a burning passion for barbecue, although that may take different pathways, all pathways lead to the same destination, barbecue excellence!


Our chefs are professionals and accommodate your culinary visions and expectations for your next large scale event. We work with residential, corporate and brewing company partners to design menus and accompaniments that cater to their brand, themes and location. We have high expectations for our employees and are committed to going the extra mile for our clients and their customers to make your Rubicon BBQ journey more relaxing.


Our journey began in 2001 when our co-founder began traveling to the nation’s top barbecue destinations across the country. His research lead to adaptations of each region’s traditional styles and techniques. The result is an All-Star approach to RUBICON BBQ’s line of products, including its rubs, sauces, smoked meats and sausages. Please contact us today to fulfill your custom order of any combination of our culinary products.


Are you looking to channel your inner pit master running a smoker designed and built in Georgia, smoke and roast your own 150 lb hog, or are you a professional chef who’d like to offer smoked meats on a special menu? We deliver our smokers to you and supply enough wood for up to 16 hours of cooking. Our rental services include an hour long tutorial of how to maximize our pit’s performance in all types of weather as well as a review of your planned recipes, cooking times, and techniques. Please contact us to reserve one of our smokers.
