This is a favorite place in Southington. By far our favorite meal is the 5 sides with a ton to choose from.

My husband had seen a recipe in the Hartford magazine for goat cheese stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon from Chris, owner of Smokin with Chris. He made it and it was delicious so he decided we should take a ride to the restaurant and compare Chris’ to his. As soon as you get out of your car, the delicious smell of barbecue hits you. Even if you aren’t hungry, the smell will make you hungry. We decided to eat outside and there was a cute area right off of the parking lot but when we approached it were instructed to walk around the building to the main entrance, then walking through the restaurant and server area down outside stairs into the picnic area that was right off of the parking lot. That was the only negative because I watched a lady who was having a little issue have to make the same trek

The staff could not be more friendly including Chris himself who took the time to discuss the shrimp dish with my husband. The biggest problem you will have here is trying to decide what to order. The servings are plentiful and come with delicious sides. I suggest, if you have never eaten there ordering different dishes and sides so you get to experience everything. We will definitely be returning again!

Always friendly always good, the pulled pork sandwich is the bomb! Never had a problem and even if there was a hiccup they always made good on it. Some unique craft cocktails and the bartender is always willing to try something new.

Went to hear Grayson Hugh and Polly Messier (go see them there or anywhere) at Smokin’ with Chris - the music was great and the food surprisingly good. The crab cake appetizer was perfect and the blackened steak perfectly cooked with plenty of flavor. Worth the visit with or without entertainment.

Owner takes great pride in providing BBQ prepared in traditional wood fired smokers. No computerized gas fired pellet smokers here. Always has great and creative specials. Been going here since he opened many years ago. It is the standard I use to judge all BBQ
