B&B Charcoal stands behind the fact that its customers are the most important component of the business. Not only are we a business, we are family and we love to hear from our customers their story and where they came from. Take a look at their stories!

Sweetwater Smokehouse, owned and operated by Carlos Leach, is a mobile food trailer specializing in smoked meats and homemade sides. Sweetwater Smokehouse is based out of Bogue Chitto, Mississippi in a small area known to locals as Sweetwater. The name for his food trailer and catering service came from the old Sweetwater Schoolhouse that burned down and Sweetwater hill, which he lives near.
Carlos was raised by his mother and grandmother in Central Mississippi. He gained his passion for cooking good food and serving others from his grandmother. She taught him how to cook and make an enjoyable meal. This love combined with a dream, and a very supportive wife Tammy, helped him transform his ideas into a growing business.

M. Clancy's

M. Clancy’s is a family owned and operated restaurant serving BBQ and pub fare. The owners, Matt and Liz Clancy, moved to the small town of Rosebud, Missouri in 2006. Originally serving pub food, the Clancy’s decided to rework their business in early 2019, transitioning from pub food to more BBQ items, while keeping some of the more popular pub fare.
With the help of B&B Charcoal products and some family recipes, such as Matt’s mom’s delicious potato salad or his dad’s Seasoned Smoked Wings, Matt and Liz created a menu full of options for each person that walks through their door. From burgers and chicken sandwiches, to mouth-watering Baby Back Ribs, Pulled Pork, USDA Prime Brisket and USDA Prime Ribeye Steaks, there is something for everyone at M. Clancy’s.
