Oprah Winfrey, Dolly Parton, Travis Tritt, Bono, the Boston Bruins, Vince Gill, Gene Simmons, and Amy Grant all share one thing in common; they’ve all ate at the legendary Jack’s Bar-B-Que in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s easy to see why, the make the most amazing, smoked hickory barbeque!
The magic all starts with the grill masters applying a special mix of spices, called a dry rub, to the meat, and then letting it slow roast for 18 hours at 250’. The result is authentic smoked barbeque meat, with a pink smoke ring around the edge. This is classic Tenessee barbeque at it’s best!
At Jack’s Bar-B-Que, they serve Pit to Plate, meaning the meat comes from the smoker to be slices and served right to the plate. It’s hand made every day. The selection is so vast it’s hard to choose – from Tennessee pork shoulder and Texas beef brisket, to St. Louis style ribs and smoked chicken. Pair it with the variety of six different finishing sauces for a taste sensation that will leave your hands sticky and your mouth watering for more.
Jack’s Bar-B-Que has been serving up smoked meats since 1976. Their neon sign has become a landmark in Nashville – being featured in movies, music videos and on souvenir items.
