A few tips...
- B.T.'s Smokehouse is BYOB, so feel free to bring along your favorite beer, wine or other spirited beverage to complement your BBQ feast. Forgot to pack a bottle or six-pack? Yankee Spirits, one of the largest liquor stores in New England, is practically next door at 376 Main Street in Sturbridge.
- From meats by the pound to side dishes to desserts, B.T.'s Smokehouse serves up all of its southern cuisine to-go, so you may want to bring along a cooler and share a treat with BBQ lovers back home (or at least save the leftovers if you were bold enough to tackle the three-meat platter).
- B.T.'s Smokehouse can cater your pig roast or barbecue in New England. Call 617-251-6398 for details.
