Smoke on Wheels Competition BBQ Andy Groneman has been part of the Competition BBQ world for 20 years. A second generation pitmaster, Andy started his BBQ journey with the HoDeDo’s BBQ team, to spend time with his dad, George; backing his Uncle, Tom Groneman and Bob Eickhoff in the pits.  Since then Smoke on Wheels has earned hundreds of BBQ awards and entered into the BBQ Products arena with Smoke on Wheels BBQ Marinade, and Smoke on Wheels Pork injection and marinade.


Smoke on Wheels is a family BBQ team.

We love to cook and travel; making friends all over the country along the way.

We have met some of our best friends in the world through this crazy thing called competition BBQ.


Occasionally we get to invite some of those friends along with us, which makes it even more fun!

We’d love for you to read through the pages, check out the pictures and enjoy the journey with us.  From Lake Placid to Palm Springs, it’s quite a ride;  and we never know what to expect along the way.

In addition to the posts and pictures of our competition exploits, we also teach BBQ Classes (BBQ-101 page) and have a couple of our competition proven products available for you to try!




Andy has been involved in competitive BBQ for over 15 years. He has wins under his belt for competitions in grilling, smoking, and other outdoor cooking .
