Smoke Barrel started on a cabin patio in Summerland, British Columbia. With a craving for Smoked Ribs and a desire to build his own Smoker, Zac Hartley purchased one wine barrel from the Okanagan and converted it into a smoker. By cutting the top off for a lid, inserting a couple of cooking grates and bowl for charcoal the first one was born. After three years of use and countless pulled pork sandwiches, Zac’s wine barrel smoker quickly gained interest from friends and family. This made him realize he was not the only person looking for a smoker that would fit beautifully in any backyard.

Since the creation of that first Smoke Barrel, our mission has been to bring people together with great food and amazing products. Stunningly hand crafted in the shadow of the Rockies, each product has a unique color, texture, and story. With markings from the cooperage, the wine maker, and the craftsman, each barrel tells a different tale of flavor just waiting to be explored.
