Our beginning



Mikey Kay is our head pitmaster and co-owner of Fire & Smoke BBQ Company. His background story is nothing but unique. Mikey is a family man, one who has been drawn to an open flame since his young teenage years. After graduation high school, Mikey had explored many professions including photography and cosmetology… he even toured with music bands! Yet nothing had fully satisfied him. Mikey continued to yearn for a true passion. And that, my friends, is when grilling really started to happen. Mikey had met and married his loving wife, Amanda, and together they started a BBQ podcast. He put together a website, started inviting guests to talk barbecue on a podcast, and later hired on friends to write blogs. Man Meat BBQ eventually began to grow into a social media brand and podcast known to many people all around the world. Throughout the years of Man Meat BBQ, Mikey has heard from many that he needs to share his incredible food with others. After some heavy thought and slight convincing from his wife (ok, not really though), that is when the Fire & Smoke BBQ Co. dream started coming to life.


Amanda Kay is also a co-owner, and Boss Lady, of Fire & Smoke BBQ Company.  She has been in the restaurant industry for over 10 years and has a passion for feeding people delicious food and creating an exceptional experience.  After being introduced to quality BBQ from Mikey, her goal is to learn all aspects of traditional BBQ and be able to show her creative side by reinventing a more modern approach. When Amanda is not busy keeping Mikey in line, she is being a full time mom to their wonderful daughter, Ember.





Fire & Smoke BBQ Company’s Catering Services provides authentic barbecue, specializing in serving meats and sides that have been cooked low and slow to give it a unique taste.

Our recipes and techniques are based on authenticity, however our pitmasters use unique flavors for our one-of-a-kind, exotic meats. So allow your taste buds to rejoice as flavors burst in your mouth with every bite of our food.
