  • 5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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!!

  • 5 star review  Absolutely amazing bbqs and smokers. Built with ease of use at the forefront. Pat & Jim test everything themselves before sending out to ensure their units are running how they should be so as you can get the most economic and best cooking experience every time. They have been cooking on big smokers for years and it's through this experience, you can rest assured that your unit is perfect. Highly recommended

  • 5 star review  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
