Our story...

David Nava (Pit master, CEO & Co-Owner) and Mark Ravin (Co-Owner) competed years ago in their first Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) competition. It was pouring rain and they had a simple Webber Grille and lots of ambition.  

Determined to perfect his craft, Pit master Nava recruited his old college buddy from Babson to add an extra set of hands and his operational mindset for their next competition. 

  Jason Miller (COO & Co-Owner) prepared his Sailor Jerry chicken thighs that famously finished 3rd out of 40+ teams! BeanTown also won their first State Championship People Choice award for pulled pork at the same competition.  BeanTown Smokers was born.

Pit master Nava has indeed perfected his craft over the years.  BeanTown Smokers has successfully competed in KCBS and New England Barbecue Society (NEBS) competitions and served many satisfied customers at private events. The demand grew over the years.   

BeanTown Smokers LLC was founded in August of 2016.  

We became an LLC to expand the BeanTown Smokers experience.  eCommerce and BBQ are now being combined to bring you some of the best BBQ that you will ever experience.

 What started as a passion on a rainy weekend in Maine is now available to you without the fuss.

 Welcome to the New Generation of BBQ.  We know you will like it.

Thank you for your business,

David, Mark, Jason
