No Gas, No Electric Smoker

Rub's Backcountry Smokehouse owner and barbecue pit master Jared Leonard helped develop and install a commercial BBQ smoker for old fashioned, energy-saving cooking.

Leonard uses a combination of hickory, cherrywood and oak logs to slow-smoke his ribs, pulled pork and briskets 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The restaurant currently smokes approximately 2,000 to 4,000 pounds of meat a week.
