slow embers × worth the wait


We are located on picturesque Highway 64 in Etowah, NC between Hendersonville and Brevard. Old Etowah Smokehouse is a reconstructed barbecue restaurant from the original 'BBQ Shack' with a brick & mortar pit which had once been a long time barbecue institution in Etowah since the 1980's.


The Old Etowah Smokehouse offers a full service restaurant, dine in or take out. We are proud to offer a menu of time honored and traditional North Carolina barbecue, smoked meats, homemade sausages and the country cooking of yesteryear. Gene Miles and family built this local barbecue institution 'BBQ Shack' in the 1980's which operated for over twenty years at this location.

We are proud to re- establish and re-fire one of the last grandfathered wood smoked pits in WNC and cook North Carolina barbecue the traditional way- in slow and good time- on glowing hardwood embers.

We are open for lunch and dinner. We offer a dine in or take out menu of barbecue, smoked meats, tasty sandwiches and fresh prepared country fixings as well as supper specials on Friday and Saturday night. We are proud to offer the Whole Hog Buffet on Sundays for the entire family. Join us on the Outdoor Patio Bar for a full menu of mixed drinks, liquor, wine and craft and domestic beer. We are closed Monday & Tuesdays.  

At Old Etowah Smokehouse we believe that we offer something for everyone and we hope that you will enjoy your time here with us.
