About Us

St. Louis Smoked Turkeys began in the great city of St Louis. With 30 years of smoking experience, Phil Kraus began testing hundreds of cooking techniques to provide his very large family with the best Thanksgiving turkey possible. 

After perfecting his recipe and creating the best smoked turkey he had personally ever tasted, he began sharing his food with family and friends, creating a buzz around the incomparable taste.


When people he didn’t know began requesting turkeys for holidays and special occasions, he saw the potential for St Louis Smoked Turkeys, now Phil continues to impress and smokes hundreds of turkeys a year for his very loyal customers.
