Our Beginnings

4 Rivers Smokehouse began with the launch of the “Barbecue Ministry” in 2004, when John hosted a cookout fundraiser to support a local family whose young daughter was battling cancer. This one event resulted in a passion for supporting local schools, churches, and charitable organizations, and a few years later, smoking thousands of pounds of meat out of a garage just wouldn’t cut it anymore.

After trials, tribulations, and a whole lot of burnt ends, we finally flipped that “Hot Brisket Now” sign on in October of 2009. Within the first hour, a line had formed out the door and then around the corner. Read More

Awards and Recognition

Rivers’ concept immediately attracted local and national recognition, with two invitations to cook at the prestigious James Beard House in NYC, four consecutive invitations to present at the 2011 – 2014 Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival, and appearances on NBC and FOX morning shows. He’s also been celebrated by USA Today, Paula Deen Magazine, FOOD Magazine, Cooking Light, Food & Wine, Cigar Aficionado, Restaurant Business, and, and named a finalist for the 2013 Florida Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. In 2014, John Rivers published The Southern Cowboy Cookbook, a kitchen masterpiece that’s destined to become a classic. 4 Rivers was named Best BBQ in the Southeast by Southern Living Magazine in 2021 and one of the Best BBQ brands in the US in 2023 by Eat This, Not That.
