WIAW: Bears Smokehouse BBQ

3 Jun

Hi guys! I’m sorry about the long break between posts but as usual, life is crazy busy and I’m just going to promise to post when I can and when I have the time. I had been looking back at previous posts and could not believe that I hadn’t devoted an entire post to one of my very favorite local restaurants. I know that I have mentioned them before but today’s post is going to be all about Bear’s Smokehouse BBQ. Now leading up to my first time trying Bear’s, I was honestly never a big fan of barbecue, mainly because of its heaviness and I never found a BBQ sauce that I truly loved. Fast forward to about a year ago when we first discovered Bears and it was game over. I found a BBQ place that I adore and I am excited to tell you about my most recent visit.

We went this past Friday evening for dinner with our friends Cheyne and Miko for Miko’s birthday dinner. They have recently become obsessed with the place and this was her obvious pick for her birthday dinner. We were greeted with the delicious aromas of smoked meat and lucky for us, the line was not long at all! Depending on the night, the place can get so packed and sometimes they also run out of certain menu items.

All day long I had been craving a chopped sandwich with a side of mac and cheese and that is exactly what I ordered. The chopped sandwich is a combination of pulled pork and brisket which just happen to be my two favorite meats aka. the best of everything. I topped the sandwich with my favorite Texas Pepper sauce which has just the right amount of kick to it. The mac and cheese is the best I have ever had and the amount they provide in a side is perfect for satisfying that carb craving. I cleared my plate and I felt great and I didn’t feel like I ate too much.

Dan chose his favorite menu item, baby back ribs. He said they were just as amazing as usual. He also had a side of mac and cheese as well as apple crisp. I didn’t try any apple crisp since it isn’t my favorite dessert (however, I LOVE their peach cobbler) and I didn’t want to stuff myself.

Ribs are not my favorite but if I were going to eat them, they would definitely be these ones

We also split an order of moink balls between the four of us. Moink balls are smoked bacon wrapped meatballs. These bad boys were out of this world and I can’t believe it took me this long to try them.

A little bit of pig and a little bit of cow.. beautiful combination

It was a wonderful meal and I am already thinking about when we can go back for more. Not only does Bears have excellent food, but their owner Jamie is constantly giving back to the community and he is also very active on social media. They also have a military, police, and firefighter discount which is always good to see. I highly recommend Bear’s to anyone in this area as it is truly the best BBQ around.
