  • Smokin Soul has to be one of the finest BBQ companies in Ireland. Smoking food is a passion for Pat and Jim. I highly recommend one of their courses where the lads share their passion and teach their students food preparation, smoking techniques and fire management. You will learn how to serve BBQ fit for the Gods after a weekend. Wishing you guys well and I hope to see you's on the road again soon.

  • The best bbq’s around. I bought the barrel, double barrel and Santa Maria over last several years and all of them are excellent machines that can be used from anyone’s backyard to fully commercial operation. I am really impressed with the knowledge of Pat and Jim in all aspect of bbq from fabricating to cooking and their coaching as after sales service. I attended the smokin soul course and this is a must for anyone who is serious about their bbq as the amount of information given in one weekend equals years of trial and errors and enhances the whole cooking experience. In one word legends!

  • Absolutely class course Pat and Jim are two men on a quest for BBQ skill, perfection and knowledge. Their passion and love of BBQ in all forms is evident from the moment you talk to them. I did their BBQ weekender course and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The lads cover everything from food quality and ingredients, BBQ construction and heat management BBQ cook times, methods and techniques allowing you learn the skills required to be your own pit master. I would highly recommend for BBQ enthusiasts

  • What can you say about Smokin Soul other than if your looking for world class quality built and designed Smokers or BBQ's built here in Ireland look no further than these guys. I have one of their BBQ Smokers and honestly the quality of the bark and moisture you get on your cook is a testament to the years of knowledge that Pat and Jim have using big smokers and that all goes into the design of all products they have. Which makes them really easy to use whether your only beginning or have years of experience smoking and bbqing. And they are always there to help you if you have any questions. Highly recommended

  • The Smokin Soul guys are the best in the business. The lads are a wealth of knowledge for all things BBQ/Smoking and anyone, whether looking to get started or even experienced grillers would benefit and enjoy their Weekend courses. I also purchased one of their handmade BBQ Smokers and of all my BBQs is my fav to cook on and consistently delivers the best results. I'm always firing over questions to Pat and Jim, who are always on hand to give advice and happy to share their knowledge. Couldn't recommend enough.

  • I have been fortunate enough to have attended one of the Smokin' Soul Bbq courses after I met Pat and Jim at The Big Grill festival. The knowledge imparted by the lads through multiple fire based techniques in the most relaxed and fun atmosphere spurred on my passion for Bbq. I am now the proud owner of the Everything model Bbq. It is a joy to cook with. Temperature control and heat retention are easily achieved and the versatility of the Bbq is unreal. I am still marvelling at the workmanship and finish on this build. To end, once you know these guys you are among their Bbq family and Pat and Jim are there to answer any queries regarding Bbq food, techniques and builds.

  • I was interested in getting a Santa Maria style grill to add to my BBQ collection and contacted Pat at Smokin Soul and he he helped advise me and design a grill for me, keeping me constantly updated with the design and manufacture process. When he delivered the grill I was blown away with the finished product, the quality of materials used and the overall finish. The grill has been used many many times and remains one of my favorite grills to use and looks as good now as it did when delivered. If you are thinking of investing in any type of new BBQ/grill contact the lads Pat & Jim in Smokin Soul and you wont be regret it!!
