About Jays Smoqued BBQ

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. At each pit stop he would educate himself in all things BBQ by experimenting with international techniques, researching cherished BBQ traditions, and observing a variety of passionate pitmasters.

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. Turkey Ribs are his signature specialty, they were the first in town and have become an instant favorite. All of his efforts have certainly paid off because Nashville’s biggest BBQ foodies choose Papa J’s every time.

With quick and convenient catering services and his ability to provide an unforgettable customer experience from beginning to finish, Jays Smoqued BBQ is an amazing choice to cater your next special event. There is nowhere else in Nashville where you can get competition-quality BBQ at such wallet-friendly prices!
