If you don't smell the smoker as you approach Parton’s Smokin’ Butz BBQ, the staff hasn't done its job. The smoker sits in the front of the dining space, its aromas wafting out into the parking lot, beckoning diners to come taste its wares. The eatery's family feast stuffs up to six diners with a sampler of the smoker's delectables, such as smoked pork, a whole smoked chicken, and a full slab of ribs, rubbed with a secret blend of spices. In true Southern fashion, the sauce remains on the table so customers can douse their food to their own taste or paint an image of ribs on their cheeks. Everything is prepared fresh in-house, from the meats to the sides, which include corn muffins, slaw, and baked beans.
