Smoked Chicken Sandwich
Chicken Little, this is not. Bring along your big-boy pants to handle this pile of bird. Tender and juicy chicken piled on a bun and topped with our tangy White BBQ sauce. This sandwich is what chickens dream about being when they grow up.
Sometimes you’re in the mood for something a little different. Or you’re dating a true West Coast girl who lives on nuts and berries. We’ve got you covered, buddy. While you order the Pig Platter, she’ll think you’re sensitive for taking her to a place where she can order something vegetarian. This sandwich is loaded with roasted zucchini, peppers, mushrooms & tomato. A tasty little number, sans the meat.
Beef Brisket Sandwich
No one makes a brisket like Smokin’ George. This tender cut of beef packs so much flavour, it’s possible your heart may skip a beat and you’ll question your one true love. Many a man has fallen head over heels for our “Bessy”. She’s a saucy one.
Pulled Pork Sandwich
Baby… this is what you’ll come back for time and time again. Our little piggy is smoked for almost a whole day, then smothered in our homemade barbecue sauce. Served on a tasty bun with a little blast of coleslaw. Start carrying a hanky around with you, because your mouth will water for days, thinking about this beast of a sandwich.
Smoked Sausage in a Bun
True BBQ fans know there is more flavour, ounce for ounce in a good old fashioned, smoked sausage. Slow roasted in our wood smoker, you’ll be bellying up to the counter to order one more for the road. Our sausage is made with an exclusive recipe developed with the Bavarian Sausage House in Parksville. Just try asking them for our secret. They’re on strict orders...

BBQ with a Twist
Pulled Pork Soft Tacos
Two Soft Tacos stuffed with tender, smoky Pulled Pork, splashed with Chipotle BBQ Sauce and topped with fresh Smoked Corn Salsa.
Smokin’ Loaded Baked Potato
Baked Potatoes. The healthy option to fries. Until you cover it with a mound of pulled pork or smoked beef brisket, a heap of cheddar and roasted onions. Order this crowd pleaser along with your sandwich or make it a stand-alone meal. You’ll be able to gauge by how much your mouth is watering.
Pulled Pork Poutine
This plate is inspired by our bon ami, Jean-Luc. His dying wish was for us to add a touch of Francophone to the menu. Sadly, his life ended after eating our pulled pork poutine – fries topped with our delicious pulled pork, cheese curds, and homemade gravy. His heart just couldn’t take it. At least he went with a smile on his face. We will require a doctor’s note with a clean bill of health before you can order this.
Have some rabbit food.
Everybody needs a little rabbit food. We don’t want to be the reason your doctor tells you to eat less red meat. So put some green on your plate with our artisan gourmet greens tossed in Smokin’ George’s Secret House Dressing. Salad doesn’t have to be a punishment. Try it Mikey! You’ll like it!
Greens topped with Pulled Pork
Nothing beats a nice bowl of healthy salad, topped with our mouthwatering pulled pork... except for maybe a beautiful woman, covered in doughnuts. If you’re watching your carbs, lose the bun and go with the salad. That smoky BBQ flavour combined with Smokin’ George’s secret, homemade dressing will change the way you feel about lettuce.
Greens topped with Beef Brisket
Salad. Killer dressing. Topped with smoky, saucy beef. If you ever land in prison, you’ll want this as your last meal.
Greens topped with BBQ Chicken
Look at you still looking through the salad part of the menu. Nice work! You on a date or something? Doctor tell you to watch your cholesterol? Well impress your honey and your doc and shoot for a chicken salad. It’s about the heart-healthiest thing you’ll find here.
Because sometimes one just isn't enough..........

Smokin' George and The Team whip up a new Soup every day. You never know what they will come up with but they always start with house made beef or chicken stock (there's nary a powdered soup base or OXO cube in the house) and add lots of fresh veggies. This is real soup my friends, heartwarming and soul nourishing, like the kind your grandma makes from scratch. Comes with a slice of our famous fresh baked cornbread - what could be better.
