The History of Messy Mike’s

Mike Massiglia, AKA MESSY MIKE, has been grilling his entire life. Early on he thought BBQ was Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, and Steak. Whoa, was he wrong!

Authentic BBQ requires smoking food low and slow; using only lump and hardwood. Thus, Mike ventured to find his first smoker, a massive Meadow Creek TS250 Trailer Smoker with a BBQ42 Rotisserie Grill. Armed with his awesome smoker, his wife Katie, and plenty of meat, Mike has served over 1000lbs of delicious barbecue in Derry NH and thousands of people in their first year.​
