Started as the Barbecue Ministry in 2004, 4 Rivers Smokehouse is dedicated to offering patrons the best barbecue in Florida while also giving back to the community. Owner John Rivers has turned his passion for Texas BBQ into a way to make life better for those in the local community. Originally, Rivers sold barbeque in order to help a local family in Florida that was down on their luck. Eventually, people became so interested in the barbecue that Rivers finally decided to open the first 4 Rivers Smokehouse in 2009. Now, 4 Rivers Smokehouse has numerous locations across Florida and a location in Georgia and is looking to continue expanding.
