About Green Smoke Trading Company

Tony and Laura of Green Smoke Trading - shirts for grillers, smokers and outdoor cooks
Welcome to Green Smoke Trading Company, a t-shirt apparel company devoted to our friends who share a love for all things grilled, smoked and cooked in the great outdoors. Whether you prefer barbecued ribs or pulled pork, stainless grills or green smokers, Green Smoke Trading Company's soft cotton tees will do the talking for you with an old school look and hot off the grill designs.

The company was  launched in 2016 by husband and wife team Tony and Laura as a place where grillers, smokers, outdoor cookers, egg heads - and those who love them - could come together and share the common language of good food and good times. Avid BBQ fans, they love to try new barbecue restaurants when they travel and even served BBQ at the rehearsal dinner. Tony and Laura live just south of Atlanta, Georgia with their grill, Egg, two sons, a dog and a cat.



Tony has been a longtime griller, but became an Egghead a few years ago with the purchase of his first Big Green Egg. Since then, he has had a lot of Egg successes (with just a few misses), built his own outdoor grill and Egg table, and organized a neighborhood barbecue cook-off, now in its fourth year with 20+ teams.

When Tony is not grilling or smoking, he works in healthcare IT. He develops much of the content for Green Smoke Trading Company's website, manages the inventory and collaborates with Laura on shirt design. Tony enjoys shooting sporting clays, playing golf, watching his boys play ball, and buying gifts for his wife.  

Since Tony found a new love in his Big Green Egg, the grill has become more of Laura's domain. Living in the South, most weekday meals at home are cooked on the grill. She also enjoys sampling Tony's Egg creations, remained somewhat patient during the two month outdoor table build and helps Tony with his neighborhood competitions...where she took home a 2nd place ribbon in barbecued ribs (just don't ask her for the recipe).

Laura works in healthcare marketing and fundraising and draws on her graphic and web design background to create Green Smoke Trading Company's shirts and website. She enjoys reading, watching her boys play ball, sampling Tony's creations from the Egg, and admiring the gifts he buys her.
