Smoke & Sow is one of Yukon's best restaurants, and we've climbed a hill or two to get where we are. We've got the goods, and we want to share them with you! You can find us on the streets of Whitehorse this summer, as well as at various events around the Yukon.

This adventure comes from a love for delicious food. It started right here in Whitehorse, where our founder and chef, Ray Magnuson, was born and raised. Ray developed a love for culinary arts at a young age, and his passion eventually led him and his future wife, Dayna, to Calgary to continue their education.

Ray obtained his Red Seal and worked with several renowned chefs at a handful of fine eateries in Calgary, while always maintaining his obsession for simple, home-style barbeque. He and Dayna were married in 2013 and eventually found themselves back home in Whitehorse with dreams of opening a restaurant.

After a lot of hard work, the dream became a reality! 2020 is year three for Smoke & Sow, and we're back in Rotary Park to bring you the pulled pork and brisket you craved all winter. We've added chef Steve to our squad this year, and we've got some darn cool news upcoming about our space in Porter Creek. For now, you can find Ray, Steve, Dayna, and the whole gang at Rotary Park in downtown Whitehorse all summer, slingin' mouth-watering authentic southern barbeque to the people of this fine city.
