If you have ever asked “Where can I find good BBQ in Nashville?” it’s pretty clear that you’ve never been to Jays Smoqued BBQ before. Papa J has devoted over 36 years to the art of crafting sumptuous slow-smoked BBQ. He spent many of those years in military service, which sent him traveling all over the globe.

Papa J has put decades of work and experience into his craft, fine-tuning his methods to ensure that every meat he serves has the perfect smoky flavor and juicy, fall-off-the-bone texture we all crave. His mouthwatering selection offers pulled chicken and pork smoked real low and slow, as well as Southern-style sides like coleslaw with sliced apples and poppy seed dressing and baked beans slowly-simmered over a hickory wood flame.
