The Gateway Drum Smoker Story
Gateway Drum Smokers
FAST. AFFORDABLE. FLAVORFUL.
Two things that seem to be issues for any bbq enthusiast wanting to compete is overnight pit-tending, and the cost of expensive/heavy pits that may need towing etc. Gateway Drum Smokers solves these problems! Created in 2012 in Washington, Missouri, Gateway Drum Smokers hit the KCBS barbecue trail with a few teams competing such as Shake 'n Bake BBQ and B&B BBQ. As these two teams gained wins, the popularity of Gateway Drum Smokers began to spread like wildfire especially after claiming 1st Place Ribs at the 2012 American Royal!
As popularity grows, so does the infamous INSANE CAN POSSE! The Posse was created to unite all those sharing a love for Gateway Drum Smokers! Made up of elite BBQ teams such as Gettin' Basted, Gilly's BBQ, Iowa Smokey D's, Shake 'n Bake BBQ, and many, many more; there is now hundreds of teams and individuals making up the Insane Can Posse and if you haven't seen the famous ICP shirts at a competition, you are sure to soon!
