By harmonising and combining spicy rubs, smoky hardwood flavours and sweet sauces Smoque BBQ is on to a winning game.

What to Order

The menu here isn’t extensive as the guys want to offer a few great dishes rather than lots of mediocre ones. That said you can choose between ribs, pulled pork, brisket, chicken and Texas sausage, all available as platters or thrown in a sandwich. Sides include classics like coleslaw, BBQ beans, mac and cheese and fries.
