Few collaborations of business, brew and BBQ have run down a lineage path of father to son to family as this one. For Josh, Jeff and Lanni Edwards, though, that’s exactly where Smoke Brewing Company was born and bred. The family. Jeff and Josh Edwards have built homes together, they’ve barbecued together and, eventually, they brewed together. And that tradition has helped open the first-ever BBQ-Brew restaurant in Downtown Lee’s Summit.

Smoke Brewing Company fuses championship, competitive barbecue with fresh craft brew to deliver one of the most unique restaurant perspectives in Lee’s Summit. Smoke Brewing combines the passion of competition BBQ with new culinary concepts and craft brew to offer a menu, style and atmosphere unlike any other in Downtown Lee’s Summit. At Smoke Brewing Company, your family will feel just as home enjoying our menu as we are creating and serving it.


Lanni Edwards
General Manager

Lanni and Josh are no strangers to working side by side. They’ve been doing it for a decade at Legacy Custom Homes – a company owned by the family that showcases Lanni’s creative knack for decorating and designing.

When she’s not at Smoke she’s keeping up all the activities and sports of her three kiddos – Morgan, Avery and Alexandra.

Josh Edwards

Josh Edwards builds homes; barbecues meat; brews beers. The Lee’s Summit resident and native is the owner of Legacy Custom Homes, founder of the Building Smoke BBQ team and a 10-year home brew expert.

Josh’s concepts will include a dynamic and robust menu, craft brews from his arsenal of 60-plus recipes and a family-inclusive environment. Like his award-winning homes, Josh and Smoke will create brews that inspire, barbecue that is extraordinary and an atmosphere that is striking.

Jeff Edwards

“Papa Smoke” is the co-owner of Smoke Brewing Company, longtime builder and retired Marine who knows a whole lot about what it takes to construct a game-changing barbecue joint.

As a builder since 1971, Jeff has constructed from ceiling to floor and about anything carpenter-wise in between. He served in Vietnam as a decorated Marine, moved to Lee’s Summit and was active in the Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce.
