B.T.’s Smokehouse is a roadside BBQ Joint in Sturbridge, MA, founded in 2007 and named the #1 BBQ joint in New England. We try to pay homage to the regional BBQ joints that scatter the southern states. Wherever you are from you have your favorite BBQ joint. In most places BBQ is at least as important as religion if not more so. BBQ is not just firing up the grill and slappin’ on a steak, it is a culture, a way of life. We are trying to bring that experience to you here in New England. We proudly serve fine quality natural meats that have been dry rubbed and slow smoked for up to 24 hours with local cherry and hickory woods. From our humble beginnings in our roadside trailer to our current restaurant spaces; our passion and love for food is something we hope you will feel and taste in every bite of our food. The smile on our customers faces and silent tables with the occasional moan and sounds of smacking lips, are the reasons why we do what we do. We have also recently opened B.T.’s Fried Chicken and BBQ in Worcester, MA, and a concession stand at Polar Park home to the WooSox, the AAA affiliate of the Red Sox.
“I try to cook my BBQ the way you think BBQ should taste. When you think about a pork rib, in your mind it is tender, succulent, ready to fall off the bone with a little smoke and glazed with a flavorful, spiced, sweet sauce. You want to lick your fingers – no need for a napkin. You want to dip the bone into the drippings that are left and then suck it dry.That’s the way I try to cook.”
