SmokeOut BBQ is a BBQ restaurant and catering company located in Pickerington, Ohio. In April 2018, Derek left his full-time job in the automotive tire industry and decided to pursue his passion of smoked food. He purchased an existing food trailer business and from there the only way to go was up. In the spring of 2022, we will be opening our first brick-and-mortar location at 1850 Winderly Lane in Pickerington, right at State Route 256/I-70. 


We pride ourselves on being a small business and offering the utmost service and quality food to our customers. Everything we make, including our rubs and BBQ sauces, is personally smoked and prepared by Derek daily.


For our catering services, we would love to talk to you about your special event and how best we can serve you and your guests! Check out our Catering section for our current menu and our Reviews section to read what previous customers have said about us. Upon our restaurant opening in the Spring of 2022, our catering service will continue, so book now to reserve your date!
