Bourbon BBQ and Catering

Great BBQ is rare to find in NJ but it has been discovered at Bourbon BBQ Hickory Smokehouse in Wyckoff. The feel of a true Southern Smokehouse is what you'll find at Bourbon. It's a real casual feel & all about the food.
Under the watchful eye of Chef/Pitmaster David Ilmojahid, Bourbon’s excellent St. Louis ribs & tips are dry-rubbed & smoked for over 3 hours. Bourbon smokes their brisket for over 16 hours & you can order it by the pound, in a 2-meat dinner combo with a large drink & 2 sides, or settle into serious eating with the Garbage Plate-ribs, pulled pork, smoked sausage & brisket, with 2 drinks & sides. Takeout packages feed groups from 4+, so order for the whole family or the neighborhood.
Don't worry about proper etiquette when you visit, because true southern BBQ should be eaten with your hands - so, give us a try & get messy! Ask about Bourbon catering your next event.

Winner of “Best BBQ in New Jersey”– NJ Monthly & “Top 5 Ribs in New Jersey” Bergen Record.

"First time at this Barbecue restaurant. The server was very friendly and welcoming. It is a byo which is always a plus . The ribs and cat fish were cooked well and accompanied by sides. It is a very informal, low key and casual place. It happened to be a quiet night and we were able to enjoy the Rangers hockey game on TV. We would return. The portions were ample."
