Ryan King: General Manager
A graduate of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2004, I completed my externship at Nemacolin woodlands resort and spa. I gained much experience in the culinary area by working at Aqueous, inside the new Hotel, Falling Rock. Within the next few years Worked in another Nemacolin restaurant, Lautrec. While at Lautrec I helped gain our 5 Diamonds from AAA and the next year while keeping our 5 Diamonds, we also gained 5 Stars from Forbes. After staying on at Nemacolin for 5 years I Moved to Crawford county. Upon moving to the Meadville area I became part of Montanas Rib and Chophouse from their opening in November of 2009. After almost 7 years and moving up from a cook to Kitchen Manager it was time to move on and find a new course. I had always wanted to learn BBQ but just hadn't got that far in my career yet. I had heard of Smoky Martin's and Ron Martin from a family member on my wife's side. Through Facebook, I reached out to Ron and a few days later we met, while the first Smoky Martin's was still under construction. After that it was a go, I would be coming aboard to help get this concept going. I have certainly been blessed meeting Ron, his family, and the rest of the people that call Smoky Martin's employer. The sky is the limit for us, I believe we all are excited for what the future will hold for us.
