Who is Smokey?

The Smokey Carter was created by husband and wife team, Howard and Samantha Carter. Now based in sunny, Manchester, England. We are proud to be an award-winning artisan food producer of BBQ spice rubs, BBQ sauces, hot sauces, chilli jams and chutneys.

Where did the idea come from?

We just love sunshine and spice, and we really do enjoy a good old barbecue. Smokey’s range is inspired by our travels around the globe. Back in the day, we both worked on board cruise ships, in fact that is how we first met. Now we are back in the real world and playing ‘adult,’ we still love to get away somewhere hot and sunny whenever we can.

And the best thing about a sunny climate? The amazing food of course. Our sole aim with Smokey is to bring those international influences from places such as the USA, Mexico, Caribbean, Portugal and Greece to your table at home.

What we would do with the funding, if successful?

We are asking for £4,500, and would be very grateful to have your support, your pledges would go towards the following:

·         The development and production of two new sauces, (which will form part of the rewards)                 £1,500

·         Trade shows, including promotional material & equipment. £2,000

·         Marketing and advertising budget to raise brand awareness £500

·         New design development of labelling and graphics £500


We have some fabulous rewards lined up for you if you choose to back our campaign. These include 3 of our sauces, one being our Great Taste award winning Chipotle & Bourbon BBQ sauce, and our 2 brand new sauces, which will go into production once we are funded. We’re also offering exclusive merchandise not currently available.

All reward packages include free delivery to a UK address.


I don’t eat meat, is Smokey suitable for vegetarians?

Yes, all our products available in the rewards are suitable for vegetarians. Our sauces and rubs work just as well with; baked aubergine, omelette, frittata, strata, falafel, roasted potatoes, stuffed peppers, courgette fritters & grilled haloumi. Make your own mixed bean chilli, or add to soups, curries, cous cous, rice, stir-fries & pasta dishes.

Where will the money go if you pass your funding target?

If we are lucky enough to have our project over-funded, we would like to increase our marketing spend to help bring Smokey to the masses.

What can I do with my sauces & rubs?

Head to our website for some great recipes, including pulled pork and spicy lamb balls. Why not follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more foodie inspiration and ideas?

There really are no rules, and no right and wrong way to use them, in fact we like to hear your ideas, why not take a picture and tag us on social media.
