The Smokey Carter is husband & wife team Howard & Samantha Carter.
They met back in 2005 when they both worked onboard cruise ships. Their travels around the ports of Central America, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, formed the inspiration behind the range of barbeque rubs and sauces that you see today.
Officially launched in 2013, after making a batch of BBQ sauce for family members the previous Christmas, proving to be an instant hit, The Smokey Carter was born.
Their love of international food, travel and sunshine, along with Howard’s passion for outdoor cooking, forms the very backbone of The Smokey Carter. These days the couple are based in sunny Cheshire, but they regularly take any opportunity to visit their favourite corners of the globe, in particular; Mexico, Portugal, Greece and Asia to source inspiration for future ideas.
All Smokey’s BBQ rubs & sauces are still handmade in small batches, ensuring the best quality every time.
BBQ rubs should be a staple in every kitchen, adding flavour to meals, quickly and easily. Not just for barbeque season, rubs can be used for indoor cooking too. Rubs are ideal for meals cooked in the slow cooker, air fryer, wok, pan fry or oven. Not just for meat & fish, rubs can be used to flavour veggies, curries, pasta, soup and rice dishes. The choice is yours.
