Get Your Barbecue Fix at Steamboat Smokehouse

The hickory smoked meats are the signature dish at this location, and you will walk to your table with the crunch of peanut shells under your feet. Choose from brisket, pork, ribs, chicken, turkey, and a range of wild tame options, or select seafood for something different.
Steamboat Springs has other barbecue joints, but the Smokehouse uses the old-fashioned method of slowly cooking the meat over genuine hardwoods without electric or gas heat. The seasoning of the meat comes directly from the smoke and is enhanced by the restaurant’s signature dry rubs.
