Smoko at the Pet Food Factory is a 2011 album by the Australian punk band Frenzal Rhomb. It was recorded in Colorado, USA, with Bill Stevenson as producer and was released in Australia on Shock Records on August 19, and in the USA on Fat Wreck Chords on October 11.

The album's name is a double reference: in Australia, a smoko is a popular term for a short, informal cigarette break and Bill Stevenson's Blasting Room studio where the album was recorded is located next to a pet food processing factory (the smell of which permeates the surrounding area, making the band members' smoke breaks particularly hard to enjoy as vegans).
