Bear Creek Smokehouse is a Texas tradition made up of 5 generations

Five generations of family pride & quality!

In 1943 Hick & Nellie Shoults started raising turkey’s to make ends meat, now over 75 years, and five-generations later Bear Creek Smokehouse is a nationally recognized company with award-winning, delicious, premium smoked meats.

Over the years, Bear Creek Smokehouse grew from just turkeys, into a variety of meats including pork, poultry and beef. You can read more about the Shoults family and the history of Bear Creek Smokehouse here.

To celebrate their 75th year, and also to accommodate their growing customers, in 2018 the Shoults family opened a brand-new general store that also serves as an event center. Using salvaged material from a warehouse built in the late 1800’s, the Shoults family and crew managed to bring the material back to life throughout the interior of the store, creating a one of a kind, authentic atmosphere.

Now guests can walk around, shop their meats, along with a variety of other merchandise including soup mixes, breads, homemade fudge, t-shirts & apparel, and other knick-knacks. To view their products click here.

They also have a cookbook called Bear Bottom Bliss filled with family recipes and stories. You can check out a few of their cooking demonstrations here.

Bear Creek also wants to host your next event. With a 100-foot front porch overlooking the beautiful area known as “Bear Bottom” this new facility is the perfect place for corporate events and holiday parties. They also have a private meeting room for rent.

Bear Creek Smokehouse is located at 10857 State Highway 154 in Marshall.

  • Monday – Friday: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
