Mesquite Smoked Beef Ribs


Mercenary BBQ

The roots of Mercenary BBQ can be traced back to 2010 when Brent Joseph received a smoker as a birthday gift from his wife Hannah. A 14 plus year veteran of the restaurant industry, Brent enjoyed all things meat, especially smoked meat, but was hesitant to pick up another hobby. Well, that didn’t last long.


Once Brent got his smoker fired up, he began reading everything he could find about how to use his smoker inventively, creatively, and effectively. Brent has a magic touch when it comes to making delicious proteins, and this new hobby quickly evolved into a passion. After a while it he couldn’t even post about what he was making on social media without friends or family calling or even “just stopping by to see when the ribs were ready.” After a few years of perfecting his own signature rubs and lots of sampling, people started asking him to cook for their events. Weddings, birthday parties, baby showers, holidays, and family events were all treated to Brent’s custom craft BBQ skills. In 2018, he decided to make it official and Mercenary BBQ was born. We specialize catering. If your company is bored with the same old meals delivered to your office or business, give us a call at 317-500-4321 and let us deliver something smoked to order.
