Who we are:
Holy Smokes BBQ-The Grillin’ Shops is a multi-location BBQ specialty store dedicated to all things BBQ. We are a family-owned and operated business.
Mike, the primary owner, has been cooking/grilling food since he was a boy. His love for grilling began over a Weber kettle grill using charcoal briquets and lighter fluid. During his college years in New Orleans, Mike cooked at Monroe’s, a steakhouse concept similar to the Chart House. It was there that the love for grilling and cooking became a lifelong ambition, whether as an occupation or a hobby.
Mike likes to say, “I’ve been cooking over a fire for over 40 years, which is longer than many of my customers have even been alive, (lol)”. In 2016, Mike acquired The Grillin’ Shop in Centennial, CO. He spent the next 1 ½ years turning the store into one of Denver’s premier BBQ specialty shops. In December 2017, Mike acquired Holy Smokes Colorado in Castle Rock. And that is how we are now Holy Smokes BBQ-The Grillin’ Shops.
If you are like us,grilled food tastes better when cooked over a real wood fire. So, we specialize in the top wood pellet grills and the best hardwood kamado grill we know of, The Big Green Egg. Currently our pellet grill line-up includes Traeger (Platinum Dealer), Green Mountain, Blaz’n Grillworks, and Pitts & Spitts. We are constantly researching and investigating other grills, so we know a bunch about how our line-up compares to other models. As our stores mature and evolve, there certainly will be high quality models added to our line-up.
In addition, we strive to carry the best, most comprehensive group of products that will interest anyone who likes to grill, whether over a wood fire or not. We are especially proud of our sauce and rub selections. We use a three-pronged approach to bringing these products into our stores:
- Items that are rated highly by reputable sources. Typically, these
are nationally or regionally known, created by competition cooks, and/or
part of a region’s fabric (e.g., like a Carolina vinegar-based pulled
- Items that are made locally, Colorado-made
- Items that our customers request
We also carry many other food products, accessories, wood fuels, and unique products associated with outstanding grilled food. We want to help you “Be a Backyard Grillin’ Superstar”. So, surf around our website to see what we carry. No need to list it all here.
We service the grills we carry! We know how they work and what you need to fix them (either a part, a helping hand, or both).
