The husband and wife team of Phil and Johanna Hennenfent are proud to be the founders of Henn House Barbeque!
In 2012 Phil won a smoker through a radio contest. Although he had always loved grilling and bbq, smoking soon became one of his favorite hobbies and passions! In the summer of 2014, Phil had perfected the art of meat smoking. By 2017 he had left his full time job, and founded Henn House Barbeque.
Phil’s personal life motto is “Always chase your dreams”. Smoking meat was a dream he didn’t even know he had, but now, bringing you the best barbeque and catered food is his passion!
