The meats at Redsmoke Barbeque are first dry rubbed in our unique spice blends and slow smoked for many hours in Hickory and Applewoods.

Hot & spicy boldness, habanero and jalapeño pepper accents
Roasted Poblano
Fire roasted poblano peppers with a hint of heat. Blends deliciously with our Memphis Mudd or Michigan Cherry Molasses
