Meet the Maker: Smoking J’s Fiery Foods

Smoking J’s Fiery Foods is featured in the Blue Ridge Breakfast & Altamont gift boxes.

Inspired by a passion for gardening (one might say “fired up”), and committed to discovering the perfect culinary balance of flavor and heat, the folks at Smoking J’s set out to make a contribution to the region’s local food movement. And boy did they succeed. They created a diverse range of all-natural, handcrafted, preservative-free pepper products—hot sauces, bbq sauces, salsas, pepper purees, dry rubs, and fresh and whole dried peppers. Many of the fruits and vegetables that make up their products are grown on their family-owned ten-acre farm located in Western North Carolina’s beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain town of Candler, just a few short miles west of Asheville.

And since someone has to say it, we will, “They’re Smoking!”
