Description: B.T.'S Smokehouse is a dry-rubbed and slow-smoked barbecue restaurant located in the downtown section of Sturbridge, Massachusetts. Owner and Head Chef Brian Treitman is committed to delivering the very best barbecue to Massachusetts and beyond. Focusing on Southern-style cuisine, the menu offers natural grass-fed beef, chicken, pork, and other meats that have been dry rubbed and slow smoked for up to 24 hours with local apple and hickory woods. In addition to standard barbecue fare, the restaurant also offers more unusual entrees such as smoked salmon, chili made with brisket meat, and smoked turkey and chicken. We are also BYOB, so grab your favorite 6 pack on your way in. B.T.'S has won numerous awards since opening its doors, including the New England Regional Chili Cookoff and placing in the Top Ten Barbecue Restaurants in New England, and the Boston Globe named B.T.'S one of the "ten best places to bask in barbecue".

“Great find - brisket melts in your mouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

Sturbridge always seem lacking in good restaurants so we were quite excited to discover this place using my Tripadvisor mobile app on my phone. The brisket was the best I've ever had and the carrot slaw was also great. I used the house bbq sauce and loved it. My spouse had the spicy one despite being warned that it was extremely hot and regretted it.

Right off the highway in beautiful Sturbridge. The best brisket, wings and sides I have ever had. This coming from a BBQ lover who lives in Virginia and frequents many NC BBQ joints! You will love it!!

“BBQ meets a classically trained chef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2011

This is a small place, 3 tables and four stools that does a lot of take out. The food is some of the best bbq I've had any where in the US.

This is our favorite BBQ joint! I've tried (almost) everything on the menu and every single thing is absolutely delicious. They're BYOB now too! Bonus!
