Great service and great food. I've been to 95% of the restaurants here, and this is my favourite for friendliness and service.

We had the BBQ Box. It contained brisket, pulled pork, ribs, coleslaw, beans and corn muffins. Everything was excellent and the lady waiting on us was so nice. If in the area will definitely return.

This was a very friendly and very delicious place to eat!! We enjoyed brisket that melted in your mouth and 'fall off the bone' delicious ribs!! True southern style, as the recipes are original from 4 time BBQ World Champion , Myron Mixon, from Georgia!

If you’re in Nelson or driving through Nelson and you’ve had enough of the vegetarian/hippy business, stop in at Smokewood BBQ and get your meat on. It’s probably one of the better BBQ joints I’ve been to. Low key, fast service, good pricing and the...More
