At the heart of every Van Smokey product is smoke and the unmistakable flavor it adds. At Van Smokey headquarters we are constantly exploring new ways to use smoke in our products. From our Bloody Hot Bloody Mary mix using smoked tomatoes and peppers to our Mellow Go Maniac, smoked lemon syrup you can taste the time and effort put into all our products. Kicking everything up a tick or two and always keeping things interesting, we constantly look to bring you new creations to keep up the smokey conversation.Visit us
During crabbing season as a kid, Jeff (future Van Smokey himself) and his dad would wake up crazy early, go down to the water and start dropping cages in to try and catch dinner. Jeff's dad, smart man that he was, knew that if he didn't keep his kid well-fed, he would have a hangry little monster on his hands. Allowed to choose one snack, Jeff went with jerky every time—and has ever since. Years later, when Jeff's dad was diagnosed with cancer, Jeff moved back to Delaware to help him out. There, Jeff built a smokehouse for them to make their own jerky to enjoy together, just like in the old crabbing days. But before they were able to fire up the smokehouse for the first time, his dad passed. Jeff moved to the Catskills and built a smokehouse in his backyard. He started Van Smokey as a way to connect with his dad and with the community he now calls home.
