Fire it Up, Chattanooga! {Name That Smoker Contest}

Now that we’re officially a month in since the grand opening of Puckett’s Chattanooga, it’s time for one of our favorite traditions…….. the “Name That Smoker” contest!

As y’all know, we smoke our BBQ slow ‘n’ low over cherrywood, just like Andy’s done from the very beginning in Leiper’s Fork.

In an effort to honor our most faithful employees (haha), we have a long line of aptly-named smokers that are unique to each restaurant’s location, including Hog Father in Nashville, Jolene in Franklin, Cherry Underwood in Columbia, and Hoss & Lil Joe riding behind Ms. Trolley Parton for events.

The Hog Father in Nashville receiving some well-earned camera time from Travel Channel! He's a hard worker, smokin' all those meats.

Chattanooga’s smoker has been patiently waiting, but the time has come for the Scenic City to get fired up and leave THEIR mark on the first Puckett’s smoker to ever live outside of Middle Tennessee!

The challenge is on for all you Chattanoogans to come up with a fitting name for the piece of culinary wonder that brings y’all our world-famous ribs, brisket and pulled pork.   

As if putting  your mark on Puckett’s Chattanooga isn’t reason enough to put that thinking cap on, the first and second place winners will win some pretty great prizes too—First Place includes a $100 Puckett’s gift card, a one night stay at the Hilton Garden Inn from Vision Hospitality group, a certificate for a stay at the Chattanoogan Hotel and tickets to the Aquarium from the Chattanooga CVB. And Second Place is no loser: they’ll receive a $50 Puckett’s gift card and tickets to the Creative Discovery Museum from the River City Company!

To enter, you’ll be commenting on THIS Facebook or Instagram post with 1) your suggestion and 2) your email (so we can contact you when we announce the winner on October 31!). Let those creative juices flow, Chattanooga — can’t wait to see what you come up with!
