Smoked Meat Is Serious Business For Rick Tramonto
This isn’t your neighbor’s oven-braised roast. Real pit-smoked meat is a different kind of beast.
With the right combination of meat, wood, rubs, temperature and time, Smokeheads’ Rick Tramonto crafts award-winning and mouth-watering grilled and pit-smoked meats.
Meats from only the most trusted farms, house-made, rich, bold sauces and the time Rick dedicates to marinating, grilling, and smoking make Smokeheads a must for even the most die-hard BBQ fans. From Kansas City to Texas to Memphis to the Carolinas – there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Tramonto’s Passion Formed By Flame
What started as a passion for open-fire cooking in the Midwestern woods grew into the first authentic pit-smoked dining in Chicago and the Midwest.
Our chef collaborated with the industry’s leading BBQ pitmasters to meld the science and art of smoke —and now you can enjoy it at home.
