About J&J Smokehouse BBQ

J&J Smokehouse BBQ is conveniently located in Catskill, NY at the end of historic Main Street, at the bottom of the bridge into Jefferson Heights and 1.5 miles from Exit 21 off the New York State Thruway. The building, a former gas station from 1941, is quietly settled beneath the train trestle, overlooking the Catskill Creek with the Catskill Mountains off in the distance. As the space is small, seating is limited and take out options are encouraged. It is our hope to soon be able to offer local delivery services.

Jim and Jill are a long standing part of Columbia and Greene Counties and share the values, tastes and flavors that the Hudson Valley has to offer. The amenities of the Hudson Valley’s history and the destinations that bring in tourists and encourage locals to stay and make this their home are the result of someone wanting something that they could not get so they started the business. As a result businesses have grown, thrived and evolved. In our case, Jim almost always has a hankering for fabulous tasting dry rubbed, slow smoked meats and all the home made side dishes that compliment those meats – most of the time he ends up cooking, as what he’s looking for isn’t readily available. An idea was born, and here we are. From our family to yours – we hope you enjoy!

J&J Smokehouse BBQ is inspired by the many barbecue places across America and takes the best of all for a creation unique to Catskill, NY. All of our barbecue is a tasty blend of fresh herbs and spices dried and hand rubbed band then slow smoked or several hours over a blend of Applewood and Hickory producing bold, juicy, flavorful meats. Our passion is down home cooking, where you recognize the food you’re eating and as we share our experiences with each guest we want you to feel like you are home and always welcome.
