I have been a connoisseur of the American tradition of BBQ for most of my life. It is truly one of America's culinary contributions to the world. And when you find a place that does it right and consistently, you keep coming back.

Lots of us have seen the UpNSmokin BBQ truck in locations all over Missoula and Ravalli county the last couple of weeks. Brett, the owner of UpNSmokin, has that "Midas touch" when it comes to hooking up a good plate of BBQ. The original UpNSmokin BBQ House is located in Phillipsburg, MT. And is a popular destination for me, anytime I make the trip to Georgetown Lake. Now, Brett has decided to open up a second location at the old Plum Loco Bar in Stevensville. Coupled with the new Lonesome Dove Bar next door, UpNsMOKIN is looking to add Tex Mex menu items to their already amazing BBQ spread.

Brett says the restaurant plans to be open in early June 2020.
