"A PASSION FOR BARBECUE"

I have always been passionate about what I do. Blocking shots on the basketball court was only part of what made the game great. It was the feeling that I was doing what I was meant to do that fueled the fire back then and it's what fuels the fire today. Today I can't jump quite as high as I did back then, but back then I couldn't barbecue as well as I can today... it's a great trade off, huh?

ELMORE SMITH'S BBQ was founded as a way for me to share the sauces that made my friends across the country go "WOW". I've done a lot of barbecuing since I retired from the NBA. The company I founded was founded on principles, passions and love of crafting great sauces. It does not bend to shareholders (Elmore Smith's BBQ is privately owned) or the whims of a national marketing team. It responds to you, the consumer. Our mission is to make the best, we can leave the mass produced sauces to the other guys.

About Elmore Smith and his Gourmet BBQ Sauce LLC Company I played professional basketball in the NBA from 1971-1982. I retired in 1982 due to a sports injury. I played Center my entire career which was fortunate enough to include great teams such as the Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers and the Buffalo Braves, who are now the L.A.
