The Ultimate Smoker & Grill

We are proud to be the marketing company for The Ultimate Smoker & Grill, on tour now with the History Channel on the Cross Country Cookout Tour. Trace Arnold and his team are crossing all over America, find the Ultimate American Tailgaters. Serving up fun and their signature sausages, barbecue and sides, Trace is known as “the Rib Whisperer” and we are here to tell you, it is true. The BBQ is delicious and the History Channel events have really been a great experience.

Product Launches & Event Advertising

When it comes to brand awareness, nothing beats The Ultimate Smoker & Grill. When we took on this client, we knew Trace had a big personality AND a big rig to go with it. We began with a website build that needed to reflect the character of the rig and owner, but also allowing the site to capture their customer experiences and successes. We also developed an online SEO campaign, social media blitz and YouTub channel to help show America this very unique brand.
