Redefining the art of smoking, one meat at a time.

Prime Barbecue brings together the best of all great BBQ techniques to create something uniquely its own.

The process begins with the best meats, seasoned with perfect spice blends and then smoked with 100% hardwood for many, many hours until the perfect harmony of smoke, flavor and tenderness emerges. Our food is steeped in tradition, but given new life. No matter what you grew up with good barbecue speaks for itself.

What style of barbecue do we serve? Our own.

Our approach is simple: source the best quality ingredients, keep it simple and cook it the right way. We cook our barbecue with plenty of wood and time, adding just the right amount of salt and spice to let that lovely marriage of passion and process evolve into something transcendent.
