MY BUZZ

We have recently relocated to bigger premises, so we can grow our business and prepare for the busy holiday season ahead. We are positive that the year ahead is going to be a great one and look forward taking our business to the next level. It's great to be part of the #SBS winner's family and the buzz around it is very exciting.

MY BIO

The Smokey Carter is a small Artisan food producer based in Manchester in the North West. "We started making chilli jam and sauces to give as small gifts for Christmas. After increasing demand for more, The Smokey Carter was born and we began selling on ebay and at local artisan markets. Since 2014 we have developed and produced 12 different sauces and 12 different spice rubs for BBQ, stir frys and roasting etc. They have all been inspired by our travels around the world". "2015 was a great year for us, it saw us rebrand our labelling and win a number of awards including a Great Taste Gold Star! We were also invited to become a partner with www.notonthehighstreet.com which has allowed us to spread our products throughout the UK and also provide our customers with a gift range. 2015 awards included; Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce (Gold Star winner Great Taste Awards), Spiced Pineapple & Nigella Seed Chutney (Bronze Medal - Chutney Awards 2015), Carolina BBQ Sauce (Winner National Chilli Awards) and our Pitmaster BBQ Spice Rub - (Winner National Chilli Awards). 2016 awards include; Chipotle & Bourbon BBQ Sauce (Gold Star winner Great Taste Awards), Smokey Chipotle BBQ Rub (Gold Star winner Great Taste Awards), Chipotle Chilli Jam (Winner National Chilli Awards). During 2016 we were commissioned by one of the biggest banks in America to produce a custom made BBQ Sauce for one of their corporate events. A number of new stockists have been added to our portfolio and we have also made our products available in Sweden thanks to our new Swedish distributor". We’re hoping that 2017 is going to be just as fruitful, and are looking forward to the year ahead.
