For Cam Dyment, barbequing as a hobby turned into a passion when he discovered the Traeger smoker. He followed his passion in opening TheSmoke Restaurant at 498 First Street, Collingwood, in December of 2012. Now he has expanded by adding a second location in Vaughan Ontario, which opened up on August 8, 2016.
His pallet is very creative by combing unconventional items into umami sensations that take your taste-buds on a wonderful journey. Through YouTube he is known as The Georgian Chef and has created 35 videos on how to smoke and barbeque meats and fish of different kinds. Through experimentation with specialty brines, rubs and seasonings, and unique barbeque sauces, Cam brings the barbeque experience to a whole new level. The menu is endless and inventive at the same time. Nowhere does one find smoked pork, beef, chicken, turkey, bacon, and fish so well presented in unique ways.
