3. Blackstrap BBQ 4436 rue Wellington, Verdun, H4G 1W6

Over at Blackstrap, slow and steady wins the race, and the taste-test. These guys cook up authentic Memphis-style 'cue over a 12hr smoking process and then their dry rub creates a delicious "bark" on the outside of the meat. It's close to perfection.

4. Icehouse 51 rue Roy Est, Montréal, H2W 1L8

Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce. Icehouse has it. If that's not reason enough, the stuff can be coated on everything from their signature baby back ribs to their tacos, chicken, or pulled pork.

5. Le Fumoir Rubs 17 rue Prince-Arthur, Montréal, H2X 1B2

These guys declare themselves as Montreal's best smokehouse and they might be right. They won the People's Choice award for best pulled pork at Brossard's BBQ Olympics thanks to their delicious meat that's cooked over maple wood, which gives the flavor a subtle sweetness.

6. Le Boucan 1886 rue Notre-Dame-Ouest, Montréal, H3J 1M6

Located in the heart of Little Burgundy, this smokehouse specializes in Southern-style BBQ dishes like melt-in-your-mouth ribs, pulled pork poutine, burgers, and the very meaty, mighty "pit boss platter". If you haven't gotten your meat fix yet, bacon brownies are for dessert.
