Nestled in the beautiful East Texas Piney Woods, you will find Bear Creek Smokehouse tucked away along scenic State Highway 154. Our smokehouse story began in 1943, as the dream of our founders- Hick and Nellie Shoults. The Shoults couple began raising and smoking turkeys on the family farm to provide a means of income. Four generations and 80 years later, the little smokehouse has grown from its humble start and so has it’s reputation, becoming a familiar name on dinner tables across the country. A family tradition of hard work and a love of delicious foods are the two primary ingredients in our recipe for success at Bear Creek. The Shoults’ have dedicated their lives to the motto of ‘Food, Family and Faith’. The family business continues to pour their core values into every day’s work that in return leaves our customers with unique customer service and top of the line smoked meats.
