The barbecue-savvy proprietor of Holy Smoke BBQ populates restaurant and catering menus with meticulously prepared meats, which have garnered praise from the Columbus Dispatch. Hickory-flavored flames tango around dry-rubbed beef brisket, ribs, and chicken as meats crackle and pop like a phonograph stuffed with cereal before satiating stomachs alongside mouthwatering side dishes. For family feasting, relatives dig in to pork, chicken, ribs, or brisket embankments responsible for guarding savory sides, including creamy mac ‘n’ cheese, cave beans, and hand-cut chips, from signature sauces and excommunicated second uncles.

Holy Smoke Barbecue

According to a Columbus Alive article, Holy Smoke Barbecue owner Stan Riley is so dedicated to cooking his meats over freshly chopped wood that he has been known to haul tree trunks to the back of his restaurant and take an axe to them right there. He then puts the wood into his outside smokers. He told the magazine that the freshness of the wood was important because it determined the flavor of the smoked meats—the fresher the wood was, the more potent the flavor.

These flavorful meats include hand-carved brisket that has been in the smoker for more than 15 hours, St. Louis–style spare ribs, and smoked chicken. Signature sauces, such as spicy chipotle barbecue and sweet and smokey barbecue, finish them off. Customers can dine in a newly remodeled space complete with a full seating area and a bar.
