Smokin' Pete's BBQ Voted 7th Best in the West by Sunset Magazine

Great news! Sunset Magazine voted Smokin' Pete's BBQ in their top 10 Barbecue Joints in the West (June issue). We have the lucky #7 slot. Needless to say, we are very happy about the rating and article. We knew there would be something in Sunset, but didn't know what. The journalist, Sara Dickerman, who interviewed us a few months back, knows her 'cue, so it was great talking to a woman writer who knows her smoke.

Here is what Sunset had to say:

"7. Seattle ― Smokin’ Pete’s BBQ
Barbecue attitude might be brash, but the meat doesn’t have to be: The dry-rubbed, hickory- and cherry-smoked barbecue at Smokin’ Pete’s in Ballard is juicy with a subtle, almost haunting quality. Owners Eric and Julie Reinhardt are proud to share some of their wood-fired knowledge: In Julie’s book, She-Smoke (Seal Press; $17), coming out June 1, she encourages women to take up the BBQ tongs.
You gotta try The platters. You can’t err with the generous portions of 14-hour brisket or “singin’ man” pork spareribs ― dab the meat with a little of the tangy original sauce. "

  1. The book, the ranking, will the praise never end? I have travelled from Portland several times to eat at Smokin' Pete's and always left stuffed and happy!
