Winthrop is a little off the beaten track and you would expect that a real good BBQ place couldn’t be supported by just locals. My wife grew up in this town and we were visiting family. She’s not a huge fan of BBQ and wanted...More

Great Place! The staff were super friendly. Absolutely loved the ribs. Mac and cheese, corn bread snd slaw were fantastic as were the sauces. Okay craft beer selection, but could certainly could be better. Jamming tunes! Will definitely return.

I decided to adopt a plant-based lifestyle this summer, yet the one thing that tempts me more than any other is the incredible smells emanating from the smokers at Blackstrap BBQ! Not only are their meats smoked to perfection, they have some of the best...More

Delicious introduction to our stay in the US. The dry rubbed ribs were particularly tasty, as was the rest of our meal too. Good selection of interesting beers. Delicious

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. BBQ had great flavor and French dip sandwich and Mac n. Cheese were excellent. Had a good time with the server whom had mixed up a tasty sangria for us to try!

Barbecue is a labor of love! The process of cooking is slow, often taking a whole day to cook certain proteins. Long cooking time is ideal for large cuts of meats and meats with a lot of connective tissue because it allows time for the tissues to break down, making it much more tender. Heat is low and indirect and uses smoldering logs of wood or charcoal to add a smoky flavor to the meat. The smoke is hot enough to smolder, but not hot enough to burn. At blackstrap bbq we use hard wood, which consists mostly of oak, but many types of wood can be used. Chef chris thompson, and partner kate economides, opened blackstrap bbq in october 2010. The two met while working together at the legendary east coast grill, in cambridge, ma and have since formed a partnership through their love for good, old-fashioned, all-american barbecue. Enjoy life + enjoy bbq!
