We had heard about B.T's. Smokehouse and decided to try it for ourselves on our way back to Western Mass from Rhode Island. Thank goodness for mapquest, because we drove right by the restaurant. B.T.'s was extremely busy. The employee that took my order was extremely helpful (As there was a lot to choose from) We tried the pork spare... More

Good vibe. Live music. Free pickled veggies. Absolutely amazing. Tried the beef brisket, spare ribs, BBQ beans, cornbread. So good. Someone tried the smoked turkey wrap. Good reviews. :-)

I have been to authentic southern smoke house restaurants in Louisiana, Texas, North and South Carolina as well as a couple of places in California. One thing I noticed is that they all have their little twist they call authentic. I don't know what the best method of smokehouse cooking would be. But, I'm pretty sure the result would be... More

The food was edible but nothing great, however the atmosphere is fun and bustling. Service is excellent with menu items clearly defined when you ask. I am realizing that smokey fatty meat just isn't my thing....but it attracts lots of fine people...I especially enjoy watching all the beer bellied Harley Davidson type guys that gravitate to this place. Parking is... More

Enjoyed lunch with two others at BT's Smokehouse - Two meat platter of Ribs and Brisket was outstanding, ribs were perfectly smoked and the rub was excellent. They offer a choice of bbq sauces. The brisket portion was large and very flavorful. The cucumber salad side was superb as well as the hand cut fries. Brisket sandwich was very generous.... More

I had the pulled pork sandwich and took it to go. I chose the 1/2 lb. sandwich, and it was very good and you got a lot to eat with just the sandwich. The sweet sauce was my favorite. I would have given it 5 stars, but my sandwich had a few hard/burnt ends in the pulled pork, that I... More

I went to BTs with two friends based on the good reviews here. I should have paid attention to the bad reviews because they're a more accurate reflection of what to expect. This place is awful. My awful rating is based on: long lines, a chaotic atmosphere, limited service, crummy seating, sticky tables, loudness, crowdedness, and bad food. My ribs... More

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".
