a man wearing a hat


 After years in the restaurant business working in the front and back of house, a dream turned into a reality as No Joke Smoke BBQ was born. A 28 day honeymoon road trip ignited fire to create New England style bbq. Lots of tests and  trials later Saweet Heat was created. The wheels began turning a while ago about turning the old Rudy's Country store in his hometown of Swansea into The Saucery. As the fearless leader, Ryan is always thinking about how to make NJS better, from recipe ideas to the extremely long hours out at the smoker during all kinds of weather. It is his determination that makes all the hard work worth it. 

Favorite NJS menu item- The Smokerise!! Named after a street in our hometown of Swansea 

Loves: The Yankees, Disney, Brisket and of course Shosh 

Dislikes: Cilantro... Don't even wave it over the food... Keep it away lol
