About Us

Smoking Hot Dad is a group dedicated to family, friends, fun, food, and of course, fermentation – the 5f’s! We are all about building up and recognizing dads and the role they have as providers and partners in growing healthy, happy families in the modern world. It helps if we can enjoy cooking and brewing technology as old as history itself, too.

The “Smoking Hot Dads” and SmokingHotDad.com were founded in 2018 over beers and full bellies as a celebration of community and food, and a passion for outdoor cooking.
