I'm the hard one to please in our group. In this case, everything I read in the reviews was spot on. The best fries I've had in years. The best BarBQ I've ever had, keeping in mind I'm not from the south. I had the beef brisket sandwich. If I ever get back this way I'll try the smoked turkey.... More

This was the best, the very best, bbq I have ever had in MA. The smokiness of the meat (I had a brisket sandwich) was absolutely delicious. We got ours to go, but here was no way I was going to be able to eat the massive sandwich while driving. The sauces are very good. Watch out for the "Meat... More

Although every item on the menu is above excellent, once you taste their beef brisket you will never enjoy brisket anywhere else on the planet again! Always busy, for good reason, the food is worth the wait. They have an online app that allows you to order ahead so your order is ready when you arrive which saves the wait... More

Absolutely amazing BBQ joint. Great ribs and brisket to die for. Do yourself a favor and order a meal with a pint of meat and some sides and eat leftovers for days. Best BBQ you'll find anywhere in Mass

Arrived about 7:15pm on a Saturday night, no line no wait, but as we sat and ate, the line was steady. Ordered 2 double meat platters - pulled pork, St. Louis ribs and brisket... More

This is by far the best BBQ you can get anywhere in New England! There brisket is pack full of flavor and juicy! I would love to see what they could do with a NY style pastrami sandwich! The one downfall that I continue to notice is the beans... they really need to get a better side of beans they... More

We showed up a little before noon (opens at noon) on a Sunday and the place was already packed. I had brisket with beans and mac. The brisket was phenomenal, right up there with Bear's and Hoodoo Brown's in Connecticut. I will be definitely be back to try some of the other meats.

Most AMAZING BBQ that you can get in the area! We went to Treehouse Brewery and afterwards we came here for dinner. This was absolutely delicious and 10% off if you check in on yelp! I had the pulled pork which was delicious with mac and cheese. My boyfriend had the brisket which was amazing and had a very nice... 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".
