BG’s was started by Basil Garrison, owner in 2016 in the kitchen of his home.  His wife, Sheree and head cook Meria have been helping him along the way.  We have cooked for the Kentucky Headhunters 2 years in a row, served fishermen from all over the country who come to east TN. for fishing tournaments, catered weddings from the Smokey Mountains to Chattanooga, all with great success.  So… it was time for a bigger kitchen.

BG’s has built a true Tennessee log cabin with a patio and a 900 sq. ft. kitchen on Hwy. 30 between Decatur and Dayton!  This is the beginning of BG’s Smokehouse and there will be a lot of good food coming out of this little log cabin.  Basil and his “All-star Girls” (Meria and Sheree) take pride in using locally grown produce, and locally raised beef and pork whenever possible.  We make all our own rubs, bar-b-que sauce, and side dishes from scratch. We have been catering events in this area for 4 years, many different menus, many smiling faces and happy bellies every time. 

This is a small family run business with a desire to meet and/or exceed your expectations.  The more notice you can provide us, the more options we will have to make your next event a memorable one.  We plan to occasionally offer “to go meals through social media for pick up on your way home and even lunch specials on some days, (Winter-time home-made soups anyone?)  Please like us on facebook or follow us on twitter.

We are extremely excited to give back to our community and look forward to many great years of service.

Sincerely,

Basil Garrison & the All-Stars
