“Best BBQ in BC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Smokewood is the best BBQ joint in BC. They stick to a simple menu and everyone wins. Their food is delicious and quick! Whenever I want a satisfying meal in seconds, I go to Smokewood.

“Finally found a real good and nourishing meal in Nelson.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

After 15 years of traveling to and through Nelson, BC, Canada we finally found a restaurant that served excellent meals. I had the Smokewood Puled Pork, Beef Ribs, with red and white beans and two corn muffins. The Beef Ribs were tender and the some of the meat fell off the bones it was so properly prepared. The serving of Pulled Pork was more than generous. Beans were tasty and satisfying. The Corn Muffins were smooth and a different kind of Corn Muffin that we are used to. . . much smoother almost like cake. The owners of the business were very friendly and helpful. Six Stars!

“Smokin Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

We were looking for a place to eat in town and after a bit of searching ( they just moved) we found it. We both had the Smokewood BBQ box dinner. This was a lot of food, ribs, pulled pork and brisket as well as 2 sides. These were more of the dry rub variety which let's the rub and smoke do its thing with out the messy fingers. Meat was amazingly tender and just fell off the bone while being very moist. There is awesome BBQ sauce on the tables as well as a locally made hot sauce that was killer. There are tables inside but it is almost like a take out place which we saw customer after customer doing just that, though we chose to sit at a table and eat there. Not matter what you chose you get your meal in a take out container so if you can't eat all the goodness then close the lid and go! We will definitely be back on our next trip.

“Sooo Good!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

My husband and I each had the box dinner. It was great! We each got 2 massive beef ribs, a large helping if melt in your mouth brisket, succulent pulled pork, with a side of delicious cold slaw and chilli. Plus 2 of the cuties corn cup cakes. All for $14 and change. Next time we will share one order as that was a mountain if food. The service was great! We will be back.

“New Owners, New Location same great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Great place to pick up dinner after work when tired and not sure what to eat. Takeout service is very fast.

Only suggestion I have for them is family meals ie meals for 2, 3 or 4 people. The food is very easy to share.
