In the area on business travel and was looking for a local lunch stop. BT's Smokehouse came up on trip advisor as a good place to stop. Be careful on trying to find it and be ready to turn as soon as you see it. Place order at the counter and review the above head menu thoroughly before you order.... More

Very good brisket. The sides I tasted were baked beans (made with black beans), potato salad, collard greens and dirty rice. All were very good.

My food was cold and I had to send it back. When I went up to the counter, the girl completely ignored me. Finally I had to ask for take out boxes. I'm from the south where we know how to do BBQ. This place clearly does not.

If you like BBQ and are in New England, this is a must. Plenty of Gluten Free choices (all the meats). The beef short ribs are amazing. Plug it into your GPS and break up your ride to wherever with a bite to eat here-or stretch your legs and bring a treat to where you are going. They will thank... More

Everyone raved about the place. I thought it was okay. Food was served quickly. I got the brisket... very greasy and too fatty... the sides were up and down; corn bread and dirty rice were very good. Potato salad and black bean not so good! Overall my wife and tossed out more than we ate. Live and learn!

Brisket Reuben. Cheesy Balls of Love. Sticky Rib Tips ... these are just a few of our favorite things at BT's! The food is consistently fabulous, portions are huge, and while the line is usually long the food is well worth the wait. We visit several times per year and always leave with a happy meat glow :] BT's ROCKS!

Brian was especially accommodating when we we overwhelmed with... More

Best barbecue in the area. Get there when they open on weekends if you don't want a long wait and find a place to sit. Always fresh and tasty. Nothing fancy as everything is served on paper but generous portions.

Thank Arthur Z

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".
