Honey Bear's Bar-B-Q

Childhood friends and business partners Mark Smith and Gary Clark grew up together in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but brought their beautiful barbecue skills to lucky Arizonans. A catering business that started with a van and portable barbecue pit has blossomed over the last quarter-century into a local tradition, at least among people who can't get enough really great barbecue. During that time, the guys have perfected not only their sauce, but the sides, besides. Well known for their secret Tennessee barbecue flavors, Honey Bear's is a local institution.
