Wow! The aroma, the flavor and the taste! Had ribs and brisket. Yum, Yum!! Normally I'm not a "brisket guy" but a local friend suggested getting it. The juiciest and most flavorful brisket I've had. Enjoy!

Driving by on route 20 during the summer, you might have the windows down to enjoy the fresh, warm air. Then all of a sudden, it hits you... The smell of salt sweet BBQ smoking right outside BT Smokehouse restaurant, and your mouth can't help but start to water. The BBQ is very good with a daily offerings of specialty... More

This is some of the best BBQ I have had in the area! Between three of us, we got four mini sandwiches, buffalo chicken wings, one order of fries, and one order of sticky rib tips. All together, the price came to around $34! We thought it was a great value, and we had plenty of leftovers. It can get... More

Bought the pulled pork and it was A1 as always! Can't explain enough how welcoming it is being there. Never feel rushed and I've never disliked anything I've ordered there.

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

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".
