Holy Smokes BBQ


Holy Smokes BBQ - Pulled From the Pit

About Us
Holy Smokes is a family owned and operated business and a long-time dream of two brothers; Troy and Kyle Hogue. They grew up in Raleigh and attended Wake Christian Academy. Their vision is one of hospitality and serving customers the kind of down-home bar-b-que, they first had as children; pig pickins in the backyard with deck and lawn chairs full of friends and family enjoying good food and lots of laughter.

Kyle Hogue is a graduate of Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee with a BS Degree in Business Administration . Troy's has a Culinary Of Arts Degree and a BS Degree in Food Service Management from Johnson Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina.

Get ready for bar-b-que with a new attitude. Chef Troy along with his brother Kyle take great pleasure in providing expertly smoked meats for the folks of Raleigh, North Carolina. Troy has had years of experience as a “pit man” at Rudy’s Barbecue in San Antonio, Texas, where he became an expert in smoking beef brisket, pork barbecue, pork and beef ribs, chicken, sausage, and smoked turkey to perfection. The secret is in Troy’s own Holy Smokes Rubs and bar-b-cue sauces. Kyle's years of experience in food service, and his management expertise have helped to make Holy Smokes Bar-B-Que one of Raleigh's best Restaurants.
