Gateway Drum Smokers was created in 2012 by husband and wife team, Terri and Tim Scheer to manufacture a unique line of drum smokers. The Scheers have a competition BBQ team called Shake ‘n Bake that began winning awards with the Gateway design. Soon other teams adopted Gateways and enjoyed similar success. Many Gateway Teams have now banded together to form a club called The Insane Can Posse.
Gateway offers 30 and 50 gallon drum smokers and some accessories. They are known for hot and fast cooking and colorful, attractive enamel paint finishes.
