Docs Smokehouse in Edwardsville Wins National Acclaim

Docs Smokehouse in Edwardsville Wins National Acclaim

Metro East BBQ Joint Makes “Best of the Best” List

Edwardsville, IL/April 26, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – There is no doubt that some of the very best barbecue in the country can be found in St. Louis.  Several of our local smokehouses have won national acclaim.  And now, a metro east favorite, Doc’s Smokehouse at 1017 Century Drive in Edwardsville has been named to the “Best of the Best Barbecue Restaurants in America!” list by the National Barbecue News.  The widely read monthly magazine is dedicated to the sport and business of barbecue.

Doc’s Smokehouse is the first barbecue restaurant in the entire St. Louis metro area to be named to NBBQN’s annual “Best of the Best Barbecue Restaurants in America” guide, which is released each April.  To be eligible for the honor, a restaurant’s barbecue must be taste-tested, without notice or announcement, by an affiliate of the National Barbecue News.

Doc Richardson has been smoking meat forty years, including 10 years of competition on the pro circuit.  He and wife Susan spent two years developing and perfecting their special blend of rubs and sauces.  Over the years, Doc and Susan have won more than 200 barbecue awards, including a third place finish at the American Royal, the largest barbecue competition in the world.  They began catering in 2010 and opened their restaurant, Doc’s Smokehouse & Catering, in February 2014.  It has quickly become Edwardsville’s favorite barbecue joint.

Doc’s offers basic, solid barbecue with no pretension—slow-smoked meats and well-prepared sides, scratch-made with fresh ingredients.  Besides their award-winning St. Louis Spare Ribs, customers rave about their pulled pork, brisket, smoked chicken, turkey, and burnt ends.  The smoked chicken nachos are a favorite among customers, as are the mac ‘n’ cheese, corn casserole, baked beans, and sweet potato fries.  Dessert options change regularly, but they include an assortment of award-winning pies.

Doc’s Smokehouse & Catering is open Tuesday – Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday – Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  They also offer catering for all occasions.

THE GOBBLE STOP SMOKEHOUSE

THE GOBBLE STOP SMOKEHOUSE

St. Louis’ Smoked Poultry Expert Is Four – The Gobble Stop Smokehouse

CREVE COEUR, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) The Gobble Stop Smokehouse – In the Midwest, it’s not too hard to find good pulled pork or barbecued beef, but have you ever had smoked turkey ribs or fried corn?  Then you’ve probably never eaten at Gobble STOP Smokehouse, 1227 Castillon Arcade Plaza (Fee Fee Road and Olive Blvd.) in Creve Coeur.

This family-owned and operated smokehouse is all about smoked, barbecued poultry.  You won’t find pork or beef or fish on the menu, and you won’t miss them.  You will find smoked barbecued turkey and chicken paired with both traditional and innovative comfort foods.  Instead of short ribs or spareribs, they’re smoking turkey ribs.  Or try the smoked turkey tips and award-winning chicken wings.  Whether it’s a chicken Philly sandwich or classic smoked turkey drumstick, everything is seasoned with their signature rubs and spice blends.

Pair up the smoked poultry of your choice with traditional sides like baked beans, cole slaw or corn on the cob.  Or dip into their selection of their unique offerings like sweet potato fries, fried corn, fried green beans or collard greens.  They do sandwiches, salads and fresh cookies too.  Ever had a banana white chocolate chip walnut cookie fresh from the oven?

DeMarco Howard knew he needed to do something new after being laid off.  So, he went to culinary school at St. Louis Community College at Forest Park.  Then with the help of his brother DeMones and other family members, he opened Gobble STOP Smokehouse in 2012.  That sense of family and community flavors everything they do.

So what better way to celebrate the restaurant’s four-year anniversary than as part of the 4th annual “Brew in the Lou” festival at Francis Park?  The October 15th fundraiser (1-5 p.m.) benefits the Lutheran Elementary School Association of St. Louis.  And it’ll be a great opportunity to gobble up samples from “the Lou’s” smoked poultry experts.
