Our Story

Mike MillsLike many other Canadians, we love southern barbecue. (It is our favorite fare when we travel through the states.) Even with its incredible popularity we had trouble finding quality authentic smoked BBQ locally. So when we decided to revamp Shakers, we knew that a true southern smokehouse menu was something that our friends, family and guests would truly appreciate. We asked ourselves what it would take to not only offer great BBQ but to be the best smoked BBQ in Canada… So we set out on a journey to the heart of BBQ country to perfect this culinary style. We sought out the most decorated pit master in the world: “Mike Mills”. (Mike is the owner 17th Street BBQ and 4 other BBQ restaurants throughout the US including: Tennessee, Illinois, New York, and Nevada.) His BBQ team has competed and won awards in over 60 of the largest BBQ competitions worldwide. They are the only team that has ever received perfect scores at “Memphis in May”, (…the world’s largest BBQ competition) and they did it twice... We took our staff and spent a number of intensive weeks, sun up to sun down, developing our skills, working in 17th Street kitchens, and learning the secrets to perfectly smoked BBQ (….Including developing our own unique recipes for rubs and sauces). We then invested in the right tools, purchasing the world’s best commercial smoker, hand built by “Ole Hickory Pits”. Our smoker is state-of-the-art, able to perfectly smoke over 100 full racks of ribs in a single run! As Mike and the 17th Street team taught us, we smoke only the highest quality meats using mostly fruit woods at very low temperatures for several unhurried savory hours. “Low and Slow”, as they say, is the mark of perfection when it comes to mouthwatering, fall off the bone, delicious, smoked meat. As you can tell we are very proud of our commitment to offering the best BBQ menu in Canada and hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy making it for you
