What’s Smokin’ in Louisiana’s Bayou Counry

National BBQ Month - Eat Local!


May is National BBQ Month, a time to truly appreciate and savor those unique BBQ flavors! Now, I know this usually entails picking up charcoal, and firing up your backyard grill; however, we wanted to highlight a couple of local businesses who are serving up those finger lickin’, mouth-watering flavors right here in Terrebonne Parish.

Big Mike’s BBQ Smokehouse which had its beginnings right here in Houma, offers a cozy environment and sweet, down home flavors unique to our area. After spending quite some time perfecting the famous BBQ sauce, Big Mike’s is fired up to serve their patrons from both near and far. Here you can enjoy some of the juiciest slices of smoked brisket and smoked turkey breast, along with an array of side items including jambalaya, creole rice, coleslaw, and potato salad to complete this delicious experience.

Honest Abe’s Barbecue Restaurant is a charming local establishment that certainly packs both flavor and its distinctive version of BBQ magic. Home of tender pulled pork, the incredibly savory “Abeburger”, and specialty rack ribs, Honest Abe’s truly captures the very essence of good BBQ and will satisfy every “smokey” craving.

Now that we have your mouth watering, it is time to celebrate this grand month dedicated to smoked meats, by supporting a couple of our local businesses who work tirelessly to bring us some of the best flavors around! Here in Louisiana’s Bayou Country, your taste buds will always be left enriched, and ready for that next flavorful meal.
