The Myron Mixon Smoker story

The winningest man in barbecue, Myron Mixon, learned his craft from his father, Jack Mixon, in Unadilla GA.

But Myron took the family passion to a level no one thought possible, becoming a four-time world barbecue champion and star of the TV series BBQ Pitmasters.

During his rise to BBQ fame, his goal was to design smokers that could be used by everyday enthusiasts as well as competitive chefs to produce world-class barbecue every single time.

His search led him to Seconn Fabrication, an internationally recognized, award-winning metal fabrication company whose founder and CEO, Rob Marelli, shared Myron’s passion for taking barbecue to its highest level.

The combination of a seasoned BBQ expert in partnership with a technologically advanced manufacturer has resulted in Myron Mixon Smokers – standard-setting products that are respected, admired, and unequaled in the field of top-notch BBQ.
