The husband and wife team of Phil and Johanna Hennenfent are honored to be the founders of Henn House BBQ! 

 

In 2012, Phil won a smoker through a radio contest. Although he had always loved to grill and bbq, smoking meats soon became one of his favorite hobbies and passions. After perfecting the art of his craft, Phil founded Henn House BBQ in the summer of 2014. A short 3 years later, he had left his full time job, and put his entire focus into being the best.

 

Phil’s personal life motto is, “Always chase your dreams!" Staying true to his vision, Phil, Johanna and the Henn House Team are now bringing you the BBQ and Catering experience you want for your special event.
