New BBQ joint coming to Roncesvalles.

It occupies the old Bistro 299 spot. I believe it opens April 20th. Largest indoor smoker in the city? It's called Barque Smokehouse

      1. It's not the largest indoor smoker in the city, there are a couple of BBQ joints that have large smokers - such as stockyards around the corner from there.

          Stockyards sure isn't just around the corner from 299 Roncy or I'd go there a heck of lot more!

          With this place opening, there is a good possibility of a west end BBQ Triangle now - Stockyards, Barque and Drake BBQ.

          Hope they get it right. Or hey, maybe you could open up a spot in Parkdale?

            They aren't around the corner and I'm curious how it's inconceivable that this place could have a larger smoker? This isn't the first time I've heard it suggested. Is it really implausible that a larger smoker may exist?

              i think 'around the corner' is a reasonable figure of speech considering their only 6km apart....don't think you're supposed take that statement literally.

                  Nope. For me around the corner is up to a 15 min walk. 6k is a 33 min run or a TTC trek! :-)

                  If you live in Whitby like Buster, it's around the corner.
