What makes phenomenal barbecue? Is it the atmosphere? How it’s cooked? The cut of meat? Well, all of these are potentially true, but at Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que in Gatlinburg, TN, we believe in one thing: It’s all about the sauce. Located right near downtown Gatlinburg and a six time TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” award winner, Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que has provided residents and visitors of Gatlinburg with some of the most delicious and award winning barbecue you’ll find east of the Mississippi for over 26 years. Bennett’s BBQ has it all!
It’s All About the Sauce!
People always ask: What’s the secret? What is the one thing that truly separates Bennett’s from any other barbecue joint that they could visit? Well, they’ll tell you that it’s all about their own special barbecue sauce that they use to cook all of our meats, and this makes all the difference in the world. They take pork ribs, chicken, pulled pork, and beef briskets and baste them in this incredible sauce right before being smoked over hickory wood for anywhere up to 14 hours. This process allows the sauce to seep deep inside the meat while it cooks, creating a beautifully smoky and rich bite that you can only find at Bennett’s.
