Tech Guru Turns Pit Master

The BBQ Collective @ The Hop
The BBQ Collective at The Hop, Sheffield
A match made in heaven, The BBQ Collective’s residency at The Hop, Sheffield opened to the public on Friday 14 August 2015.

The unique partnership combines The Hop’s great beers and live music, which it has made its name for, with an unrivalled flavour of American BBQ, creating a truly unforgettable experience.

The BBQ Collective, an American chef-led BBQ concept, is the result of a life-long passion for all things smoked from Executive Chef and co-founder, Jeffrey Wright. Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Jeffrey’s love for American BBQ began at age just 14, when he started developing his culinary skills working in the kitchens of his hometown. Many years and a successful career in banking technology later, Jeffrey took the step to swap the financial markets for the BBQ pit, teaming up with his wife Mathurot to bring his dream to fruition.
