Social Smokers

The Social Smokers BBQ Team was started in 2009. Originally the team might have had about 25 guys that socially came to the BBQ. We send out an email to all of our friends and whomever replied came out to the comps. Some of the larger BBQs we would get a great turn out but the smaller ones would be a lot less guys.

Eventually after the first couple of seasons the team settled on about 9 core guys.  As the years progressed so did the teams cooking. We have won close to 80 total awards for the BBQ we have cooked, many of them top 5 in meat and overall finishes.

The Social Smokers have come a long way since day one but are still looking to achieve more.  As a group of friends even more importantly, than the competition, we hope we have created a bond and team that we can enjoy for the rest of our lives.

Crane Brewing Company

An American brewery inspired equally by both the bold craft beers of home and the rustic ales of Europe. We hope to fulfill the desire of our local metro for these exotic beers, and we hope beer lovers from near and far join us in Raytown, MO for a taste sometime. We strive to build on this grand tradition that never stays the same for too long.

Crane Brewing will be conducting beer pairings with the BBQ provided by Burnt Finger and Social Smokers.


Seasons 52 will provide a sample of delicious flavors of their signature dessert cups for attendees.
