Family and friends come together whenever there is meat over a flame. Old arguments are forgotten and fractured relationships repaired. At Smoking Hot Confessions, we truly believe that BBQ has the power to heal the world.

SHC Founder Ben Arnot

Meet the


Founder of SHC, Ben has been a BBQ addict for as long he can remember. In fact, his first hospital visit was BBQ related at just 3 years old! 

Instead of scaring him off, Ben has dedicated himself to teaching and sharing BBQ with others through all means available to him, whether it be via podcast, website, demonstrations, social media or whatever other opportunities come his way. 


Originally from the US of A, Bree was the inspiration behind the formation of SHC as she missed the foods of her homeland. 

As the Artistic Director of SHC, Bree has an integral role to play. With a background in professional fundraising, it is her eye for detail and marketability that govern all design decisions made. Basically, if we look good, it’s because of Bree. 


A founding member of the SHC team, Nigel is Head of Logistics and Chief Dishwasher. In short, he’s the man with a van!

All jokes aside, Nigel is definitely one of the more creative members of the team. With a refined palette, his ideas on flavour profiles and presentation are always top notch. He’s always first to come up with a new perspective whenever the team hits a speedbump.

We'd love to hear from you!
