Oklahoma Joe’s is a family-owned and operated barbecue joint. Joe Davidson is the company’s Founder and CEO, and his wife Page is Vice President. Their son Ryker acts as the Catering Sales Manager, overseeing a team that can serve up to 10,000 guests, and Breckyn, their daughter, is the Marketing Director. But this isn’t where it began. Joe’s journey to becoming one of the greatest barbecue chefs of all time began over 25 years ago, when he saved up $2,000 and built 12 smokers that he took to the Oklahoma State Fair. After the smoke had cleared, he had sold all the smokers and had orders for 108 more. Thus Oklahoma Joe’s was born. Joe had a love for barbecue that led him to become a Master of Que and compete in national competitions. From his first entry in the T-Town BBQ Cook-off in Tulsa to winning the coveted Grand Champion Overall Title at the Jack Daniel’s World Championship, Joe and his friends have gone on to take over 300 titles. Joe and his wife Page opened the first restaurant in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1994. Today, there are three locations in the Tulsa area and one just outside of Washington, D.C.
