Description: We are a neighborhood-oriented, made from scratch, casual restaurant. The feel is young, hip transcending the perception of BBQ restaurants past. Serving a variety of draft and bottled microbrews representing local breweries and popular brews from great BBQ regions (Texas, the Carolinas, Memphis/Arkansas and Kansas City) we feature an approachable wine list and a full line of spirits. The menu is driven by the chefs and their Southern roots, the Great American BBQ traditions as well as seasonal and regional products.

“Great local restaurant”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

So, let me just start by saying that the service is often lacking. The food, however makes up for it. I often feel like I am inconveniencing the servers, but the kitchen makes up for it. Try the shrimp and black bean queso.

“eclectic bbq”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

What an intersting selection on the menu. Something for the whole family. A little on the pricey side but so nice that there is something for everyone. I had the crab cakes. Very delicious.

“Best Food In the Valley!”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

We are locals and have enjoyed Jamie's BBQ since the first night the restaurant opened. From the BBQ to Salads, to the Mac & Cheese, Smoke is easily the best meal you will find in the valley. Service is great and the food is consistently wonderful. We had Smoke Cater our rehearsal dinner in September and we still have relatives threatening to come back just for more BBQ! Don't forget to ask for extra Cheesy Grits. If you're staying in Aspen it is worth the short drive to visit Smoke Modern BBQ, make sure to ask for a bottle of Smoke XXX sauce to go! Enjoy!

“Busy, fun locals place”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

We had onion rings which were very tasty.I had a chicken salad and my companion had ribs and brisket. She really enjoyed her meal and they did let her substitute. The beer selection was good. We were there on a snowy night and stood at the bar while waiting for our table. There is a fun, loud,slightly smoky atmosphere with televisions playing sports with the sound off.
I would go there again. We did in fact drive from Snowmass in the storm but it was warm and friendly when we arrived so it was worth it. Good meal for the price but not low calorie.
