About Sea & Smoke

Discover The Flavor Of New England-Style Barbecue

We offer rustic, New England elegance, combined with delicious, high quality, and thoughtfully prepared food.


Sea & Smoke is Rhode Island’s premier wood fired catering company. We utilize age-old cooking techniques of slow smoking, grilling, and searing over open fires. Our on-site service offers a show in itself – with open fire cooking over our Santa Maria grill, and a large, offset-style wood smoker. 

At Sea & Smoke we create New England-Style Barbecue. This translates to fresh clams, mussels, crabs, and lobsters cooked over coals; smoked North Atlantic Salmon, Pt. Judith Tuna, and Block Island Swordfish; fresh, seasonal veggies from local farms. We source only high quality Duroc or Berkshire Pork, and Black Angus or Hereford Beef. 

With Sea & Smoke, Chef James has brought together his years of technical experience, his passion for smoked foods, and his love of New England cuisine. His thoughtfully prepared dishes highlight the flavors of the season, with local ingredients, and the age-old method of wood fire cooking. James brings his standards of excellence and attention to detail to each and every event, no matter how big or small.
