About the Business!

Rodney's Smokemaster BBQ is all smoke, all love, and all about friends and family. We do this because we love it, we do it because we want you to love it, and we do it because it brings people together. Food is the only common global language we all speak. We know how important your event is for you, so we make sure we provide the delicious BBQ that your guests will talk about long after the event. Food is a memorable and valuable part of special events like a wedding.

I grew up in Texas and have been preparing meats on the pit and smoker for friends, family and others for many years. There is nothing we enjoy more than seeing the smiles on peoples' faces when serving people something we enjoy so much. Your joy is our joy. We do what we love. We hope you do as well.

At Rodney's Smokemaster BBQ, we love to meet people who want to share their love of food at events, private parties, and more. We help customers choose menus that match the attendees' preferences. Sometimes certain items are better suited for specific age groups. We have experience with these preferences and recommend menus that are pleasing to all guests, and we can provide kid-friendly options as well. We want to make this process as simple and satisfying as possible so the wedding planners can focus on other tasks.

What catering services do you offer?

We offer buffet drop-off and setup service, full-service serving, and plated service. BBQ offers a casual, delicious and fun menu, and most customers prefer buffet because it allows each guest to choose items they like.

What areas do you cater to?

We are based in the Midlands of South Carolina, and are able to service most of the state, including the Columbia, Rock Hill, Florence, Charleston, Charlotte, NC, and Athens, GA, areas.

What types of foods do you offer? What is your most popular dish?

Most of the items we offer are true BBQ, a mix of Carolina and Texas styles. We slow smoke our meats using oak and pecan wood. However, everything starts with the rubs! We have created our own custom line of Smokemaster BBQ rubs called Texas Brisket Rub, Southern Butt and Rib Rub, and Oh, So Sweet and Spicy Rub. Once we care for the meat, we slow smoke 15-18 hours for all orders.

We do not sauce our meat, preferring to let the meat speak for itself. We provide homemade sauces for guests to sauce as they please. Our pulled pork is just that, pulled and not shredded. This allows us to serve the get the beautiful bark flavors with the tender smoked meat.

Our basic meat menu includes pulled pork, brisket, St. Louis prime ribs, smoked chicken leg quarters, and bacon-wrapped smoked pork tenderloin. We offer a variety of made-to-order, scratch side items, including coleslaw, cowboy pinto beans (never from a can), potato salad, fresh green beans, 3-cheese macaroni and cheese, and jalapeno pimento cheese. We can work with customers to prepare special-order items if requested.

Our most popular dish is our smoked Texas brisket. Without a question, we have made our name on our brisket. However, all the items are equally tasty and enjoyable and allow us to work with any budget.

Can you show us some photos?

What is the first step to potentially work with you?

Working with us is simple, as we want to make this as easy as possible for the wedding party. You can email or call us, and we can suggest a menu to meet your needs.

What is my relationship to the featured wedding vendors? I am always transparent with my audience. These vendors were hand selected by me to feature in this post. They were each charged a small fee to cover my time in creating their feature as this provides a means for me to earn an income. I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only feature venues and vendors I truly think are great!
