Our Smitty's Smoke Patrol team has competed in over 100 KCBS sanctioned competitions in 6 different states...winning over 100 awards in the process.   We were proud to have represented our state of California in 2 different World Championships over the years.

We would like to thank our great sponsors,  who we have learned to depend on their great products in all our competition efforts. Eggs by the Bay™, the Bay Area's Headquarters for the Big Green Egg is our major sponsor, the STOKER from Rock's Barbque allows us the sharpest of temperature control.  We also have always depended the great BBQ products from Santa Clara Valley smoking woods, Dizzy Pig dry rubs as well as Butcher BBQ.

We began competing against the top BBQ Teams in California with our Big Green Eggs in 2006.  Since our opening of our Eggs by the Bay™ BBQ business in the SF Bay Area in 2007, we have kept up with the competition aspect by traveling and competing in 10-15 KCBS sanctioned contest a year. 

We enjoy the fine art of authentic Barbeque while promoting the Big Green Egg, as we believe it is one of the best Smokers you can buy for the backyard.  Eggs by the Bay™ is the leading Big Green Egg dealership in the Country and now our two ventures work hand in hand. 

Our staff here at Eggs by the Bay™ helps promote BBQ by sponsoring several statewide BBQ events ranging from Eggfests, Cooking Classes, Backyard BBQ Contest, to KCBS Championship BBQ Competitions.
