Montana Master Grillers

Chef Sheldon Mason

Mason Barbecue

Great Falls, MT

One of the highlights of Paws Up’s 2018 BBQ-U was when Chef Sheldon Mason and his buddy Chef Evan LeRoy rolled out Mason’s innovative, trailered double-pit smoker, affectionately known as “The Twins.” So we’re thrilled Mason is returning to The Resort to fire it up again. An Alabama native, Mason honed his craft cooking traditional Texas-style BBQ, learning from experts like LeRoy in Austin. After logging nearly 20 years maintaining missiles at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mason is now also a pit master at his own Mason Barbecue. He and his portable BBQ are likely to pop up at major grilling events around the region. When he’s not defending our country, he’s protecting the reputation of Montana as a growing BBQ center, designing and building his one-of-a-kind offset smokers.
