What makes our restaurant different is the amount, consideration, and attention to each part of what goes into a great smoked meat or recipe. We pride ourselves on using only fresh, local ingredients and the finest brisket, pork, ribs, and chicken available. Everything is made from scratch including the buns, rubs, pickles, sausage, and sauces. Each sauce is created to represent a region from the South: Memphis Style, Mustard Sauce from South Carolina, Dip from North Carolina, Alabama White Sauce, or our very own hot sauce.
