Episode 10 of Big Smo introduced us to the condiment of all condiments. Big Smo’s infamous Meat Mud! Work up your appetites before you read this post any further because I assure you, you will want a big, heaping helping once you hear about this sauce!
Just to recap Big Smo on A&E TV is a real life series following country rapper, Big Smo, as he takes his unique style of music to new heights with the support of lifelong friends, loyal fans, and his beloved family. It is a behind the scenes look at Country Rapper, King of Hick Hop Big Smo’s family, music, and rise to stardom. His music is Country fried rock rap otherwise know as HICK HOP. It’s a sub-genre of Country Music with a twist of southern rock and roll delivered in a rap form.
Big Smo has a few nick names, the King of Hick Hop, King of the Country, Boss of the Stix, Hick Ross, Big Boss, The Big Smocephus but call him what you want to call him, this is one of the first reality shows to come along in a long time where the star is authentic and I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone like Big Smo, who always tells it the way it is, especially through his music, and has a posse around him like manager Dan Nelson, singers Haden Carpenter and Alexander King as well as his beautiful other half Whitney, along with his Mama, children and kinfolk (the name he gives his fans).
Boss of the Sauce
In this episode, we learn that Big Smo has talent that far exceeds that of hick hop. Big Smo can also be referred to as Chef Smo-ardee, as he “makes sauce for southern people.” What’s in this sauce? Well, Smo passes on his recipe to his daughters, Ameria and Lanica, which originated with their “Great Grandpappy, Boots McGee.” Though we don’t get the actual ingredients or measurements in explanation form, we are reminded once again how incredible Smo’s relationship is with his daughters as we watch the three in the kitchen together. Oh, and we also have to pause the show so we can run to the kitchen for a snack!
During the episode, Smo is also given the opportunity to showcase his sauce at an event, so he does what any wise man would do. He calls on Haden and Alex (a/k/a “Dumb and Dumber”) to lend a hand in shopping and preparing his Meat Mud. Shopping with these two is no easy task, but the guys (with minor mathematical issues) complete the job and head to the kitchen. How did Smo’s sauce fare at the big event?

“You can tell when something’s real,” says the man known simply as Big Smo. “You can tell when it’s true. And I think what’s made us successful and gotten us this far is that we’re just real people, down-home country folk who really love to make music. People see that.”
Word of mouth, charged by the Internet, meant Smo could count his YouTube views in the millions before he talked to a record label. Low-budget videos showcasing his 32-acre farm, which has been passed down for generations, is his home base HQ. Homegrown in Tennessee, the self-proclaimed Boss of the Stix seamlessly weaves his work and play, his lifestyle and music on that farm, as compellingly as he weaves country, rock and hip-hop together.
His loyal fans – who he affectionately calls his Kinfoke – had better get ready to share Big Smo with an even larger audience.
The reason begins with the release of his major-label debut (June 3 on Warner Bros. records), titled Kuntry Livin’, a 13-song look inside the mind and music of one of the world’s true originals. Followed by a debut of an A&E original series centered on the country rapper, and it’s obvious this larger-than-life Tennessean has entered new territory – with every bit of the edge that brought him here.
