Smokin J's BBQ
St. Louis. Memphis. Spokane? When people think about America's barbecue capitals, Washington's second largest city probably doesn't come to mind, but maybe it should. At least, that's the feeling of the pitmaster behind Smokin J's BBQ. Since opening in 2015, this barbecue joint has been luring in Washingtonians with its take on classic smoked meats, including brisket, ribs, pork, and chicken. The smoking process only adds one layer of flavor, however. Smokin J's signature sauces do the rest. These house-made accompaniments run the gamut from spicy to sweet, with gourmet options like the blueberry-chipotle sauce striking a tasty a balance between both extremes. In addition to all this typical barbecue fare, the menu also boasts a couple surprises, including vegetarian lumpia tacos with Thai peanut sauce and smoked baked beans.
