The Miracle League athletes can bat from a tee and have a buddy to help round the bases if needed.  Everyone bats and everyone hits a home run!

  • "We have dealt with Clay at Southern Hearth and Patio for many years.  He and his staff have always been very helpful when we built our house for fireplaces, furniture, and our beloved Primo smoker.

  • "I have had multiple opportunities do business with Clay and Charlotte at Southern Hearth and Patio. Gas log purchase and installation were completed with ultimate professionalism. Service staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. My purchase of a pellet smoker is so much better than I thought it would be. Glad I listened to Clay as I have had many great meals. I also love the showroom as I am like a kid in a candy store. I can't imagine that anyone can do it better than Southern Hearth and Patio. I will no doubt be back again." - Randy B. Soddy Daisy, Tn.

Simply put, at Southern Hearth and Patio, they are "the best" at what they do." -Joel S. Chattanooga, Tn.

Each and every employee can be called experts in their field. As an added bonus most if not all products sold by Southern Hearth and Patio are MADE IN THE U.S.A. Can not go wrong buying any products from Clay and his family." - Lenny D. Chattanooga, Tn.
  • "In the search for a high quality BBQ grill, I ended up at SH&P. I appreciated getting greeted when I entered but given the space to look around and take it all in. The showroom is impressive! I don't mind paying premium money for premium products and after I received accurate information regarding the Fire Magic grill, my perspective switched from "premium" to value! Clay and his staff are great! Their product selection was a little to good because I left with a Yoder Smoker also. 6 weeks later I could not be more happy with my purchases. I did well on a grill before, but the Fire Magic takes it to another level. The smoker makes me look like I have years of experience, it performs flawlessly. I had one issue with my grill and Clay's service technician fixed it the next day and I live in Cleveland, TN. Under warranty of course. That type of service is nearly a thing in past except for SH&P!" - Warren D. Cleveland, Tn.
