Salt Lake City's Best BBQ

Barbecue aficionados may have their disagreements about sauces and rubs, but there's one thing on which they'll always agree: the best barbecue requires lots of savory-smelling smoke. With that in mind, here are some of Salt Lake's Best BBQ.

Sugarhouse Barbeque Company
Known around Salt Lake City as a barbecue joint that is more upscale than most - if you can call eating off of paper plates upscale. Locals come to SugarHouse, just minutes from downtown, to roll up their sleeves and enjoy the house-made-sauce covered Memphis-style ribs. They also serve marinated and smoked chicken, Caribbean jerk chicken, dry-rubbed baby back ribs, beef brisket, and jambalaya.

  • Joe Morleys Barbecue - August 2021, Now Closed - Sorry!
    Been around for almost 30 years. If you like BBQ, and you're in SLC, you might want to start your BBQ taste testing here! Go for the brisket, spare ribs and chicken and chopped beef sandwich is amazing. Definitely kid friendly. Live music on the weekends, sports on the flatscreen TVs.

  • Dickey's Barbecue Pit, Numerous Locations
    Another one that's not bad for a chain. Enjoyable BBQ, reasonable prices, try the 2 meat plate (pulled pork and briscuit) with 2 sides or a pulled pork sandwich with 2 sides.
    Pluses... Free Ice Cream afterwards and Kids Eat Free on Sundays. Very Family Friendly.
    Minuses... Service Is Slow! Everytime we have gone there service was slow. The staff is always nice, but, expect slow service, sorry.

  • Q4U Barbecue
    This is a little different, Tommy T. of Q4U, a friend of mine for 15 years purchased a food truck to continue to serve up some of Utah's best BBQ, smoked ribs, pulled pork and chicken. "T," as he's known, had to close down his west side restaurant after road construction killed his business. We missed his incredible BBQ for a full year. If you lived in Salt Lake prior to 2012, you know what I'm talking about. Unfortunatly with a food truck you don't have the extensive offerings of a main stay restaurant. With that in mind, the pulled pork and chicken sandwiches with original or spicy sauce are the mainstays. The truck is mobile, so you have to visit their website to see where it will be parked that day. On Fridays and Saturdays he also serve ribs straight from his smoker, which he pulls along with the truck.
