Best BBQ Joints in Alaska!

Alaska has a reputation for doing things its own way. But one thing it does have in common with the other 49 states is awesome barbecue. As you may’ve guessed, though, Alaskans add their own flair to classic ‘que—and it’s often delicious. Here are some of our favorite, sticky-fingered, messy-faced joints for barbecue in the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Smokehouse BBQ, Anchorage, AK

Smokehouse BBQ started as a humble shack and catering company that had folks in Anchorage lining up for their pulled pork. In order to keep up with the appetites of the local carnivores, they opened a restaurant and a second shack. Definitely get the pulled pork, and you’ve got to try the brisket chili. Feeling more sausagey? Sink your teeth into a smoky-good reindeer dog.

Big Daddy’s Bar-B-Q, Fairbanks, AK

Big Daddy’s proclaims that they serve the “northernmost Southern bar-b-q.” While it’s possible that there may be places farther north, there’s no denying the restaurant’s Southern influence. The rib tips and the Arkansas baby backs are definite go-tos. But if your server tells you that they’ve pulled a brined turkey out of the roaster, drop all your plans and order the bird.
