It started with us following through with a dream of living at the beach and our friend, Josh suggesting we try making salt. As a former educator, I thought this sounded like such a fun experiment. Plus, we are huge salt fans, often bringing it home from our travels and creatively using it in our cooking. We trekked to the beach with buckets and experimented with different methods of salt-making. First boiling, then baking and next, a combination of the two. Finally, solar evaporation. Solar evaporation takes the longest amount of time, but also creates flakey yet crunchy salt, while using no energy. Turns out, the fast moving clean waters of Wrightsville Beach create an amazingly delicious salt with perfect texture! It is this sharing process that we enjoy the most…. talking with customers, chefs and stores while gaining inspiration, feedback on flavors, scents, new products and packaging. The growth and backbone of this company comes from these connections.

29 Warren Street

Founded in 2010, Southern Smoke BBQ of NC formally began when Matthew began smoking pork (and practically anything else he could get his hands on) the old-fashioned way, slow and low over oak wood. He then began experimenting with sauces and created Sweet Grace, named after their daughter, and Two Brothers, named after their sons. Of course, both sauces had to pass numerous taste tests by family and close friends long before they made it to your table…nothing but perfection for the customers, of course!
Friends and family have enjoyed the BBQ and sauces so much, that they are now available to the public! The catering headquarters and restaurant opened in downtown Garland, NC on Warren St. in April 2014. Restaurant hours are Thursdays and Fridays only, with doors opening at 11:30 AM sharp. Pre-orders on ribs are recommended (with at least 24 hours’ notice). Fans of their sauces can visit various retail locations listed on this site and they are also available in the restaurant, along with other Southern Smoke BBQ of NC merchandise.
