Our Story

Doc Watson's Smokehouse

We are a BBQ smokehouse in Illinois that offers Central Texas-style BBQ. Our meat is fresh and cooked to perfection over indirect heat for anywhere from 4 to 16 hours. We use 100% cherry wood in the smoker and season our meat with a dry rub you won’t forget about. Pair your platter or sandwich with any fresh side of your choice. We also offer our bottled BBQ sauces and flavored moonshine for you to take home. Come on in and enjoy a genuine Central Texas-style BBQ experience!
