BBQ in Utah

  • r

Does anyone know what happened to Southern Plantation? Their ribs were some of the best I've ever had, and their spicy sauce was fantastic! I tried Q4U last month, and while the meat was tastey and the portions large, their "spicy" sauce was disapointingly sweet, not spicy at all. (they had a wide variety of hot sauces in the back, but thats not the same as the well melded flavors of a good BBQ sauce). Their cole slaw however was quite good. Does anyone have a BBQ place in Utah with a rich spicy sauce and well cooked meat that they would recommend? - Thanks

  1. Give Bubba's BBQ a try if you've never eaten there. It's at 4291 S. 900 East. Their ribs are excellent.

      Hi Chimayo Joe,

      Sorry, I'm not that familiar with Utah. In which city is Bubba's BBQ?


      1. re: Andy P.

        Bubba's BBQ is in Salt Lake City. Fat City Smokehouse(36 S 100 West)in Moab is another good barbeque place if you ever get over to that part of Utah.

        1. re: Chimayo Joe

          Fat City is all right. I think I liked their sausages better than the tri tip but I may be misremembering.

          There is a place in Panguitch Utah--the Cowboy's Smokehouse...very tasty texas style brisket.

            I've eaten at Fat City a few times, but I've only had their ribs. I tried ordering their hot links once, but they were out of them. Relatives with me on one visit had tri tip sandwiches(I think) and seemed to like them. I think their beans are pretty good, too. More of a southwest chile bean recipe instead of typical barbeque beans.

            Thanks for the tip on Panguitch. That's fairly near Bryce Canyon National Park in case anyone is wondering where it is.

    2. sorry my response is so late, but places them at:

      Southern Plantation 1465 S State St  Salt Lake City, UT (801) 467-7737 

      1. Try SugarHouse BBQ, approx 22nd So. on 7th East.

        1. I highly recommend Pat's BBQ. The meat is of great quality, tender, rubbed just perfectly and great sauces to enjoy. Their sides are also classic. I recommend their red beans & rice. Sugarhouse BBQ's meat is always dry and has poor sauces. Q4U is also a decent BBQ place to get your BBQ on.
