SMOKIN’ GEORGE’S BBQ… SLOW FOOD FAST!
Every city worth its salt has a place that locals talk about… you know, that place that serves up the tastiest, smokiest, most delicious BBQ. In Nanaimo, that place is Smokin’ George’s BBQ!
Every day, we’re chopping up local hardwoods to smoke up the most incredible pulled pork, beef brisket, pork ribs, chicken, and sausage this city has ever seen. We bake our cornbread fresh every morning, hand cut buckets of fries and mix up our housemade BBQ sauces and dressings, so every time you step in our door, you can smell those flavours in the air. We don’t screw around my friend. We take BBQ very seriously.
We make slow food… fast.
Smokin’ George’s BBQ is right in the middle of town, just off the Parkway at Mostar and Boban.
4131 Mostar Rd #5, Nanaimo, BC

Yep, we make our own desserts too but Smokin’ George likes to mix it up a bit so you just never know what he’s in the mood for. Ask about today’s creation. It could be one of our chocolatey good brownies or perhaps one of our award-winning Bacon Topped Nanaimo Bars. Deciding on one will be cruel punishment indeed. Will it be the Truly Decadent, Bacon Topped Nanaimo Bar or the Dolce de Leche Nanaimo Bar also topped with Bacon? Perhaps both!
We offer a variety of non-alcoholic beverages from water and juices to pop and ice tea. We also offer white & red wine, and some of Smokin’ George’s favourite local craft beer and cider. These selections are constantly changing, so please ask about our current selection and pricing.
Tuesday – Today we are featuring our savoury Cuban sandwich! Our maple-smoked house ham, pulled pork piled on a bun and topped with Carolina gold sauce, our own dill pickles and Swiss cheese. A crazy good combination of flavours that will take you to a sunnier place!
Wednesday – In case ya didn’t know, Wednesday is Wing Day at Smokin’ George’s BBQ! Our wings come in fresh on Tuesday, they’re dusted with our rub, and popped in the Smoker Wednesday morning with local Alder wood.We serve em up by the pound with your choice of house cut fries or freshly baked cornbread. Tender and smoky, you can’t go wrong stopping by for Wings on Wednesday!
Thursday – Here’s a variation on one of your favourites…the pork loin sandwich, this time decked out with a red onion relish and Matchstick potatoes. Come on in and have a bite 11 to 7!
Friday – It’s lunchtime! Are you ready for our Lamb Shoulder Sandwich? Like everything at Smokin’ George’s it’s slooooowww food (prepped over the last few days) served fast to you! Topped with goat cheese and crunchy arugula. So good – see you soon!
Saturday – We’re going for big flavour today folks, and we like to think we’ve perfected the art of the crispy chicken soft taco! The chicken is buttermilk-marinated overnight, then twice coated in a mix of flour and our signature BBQ rub. We fry it ’till it’s crispy, wrap it in a soft tortilla shell, and top it off with smoked corn and tomato salsa, fresh cilantro and a splash of our Carolina Gold BBQ sauce. There is a reason these babies are so popular!
Sunday – It’s that day again… where you can sleep in and still have time to grab one of our pulled pork, house bacon & egg sandwiches for brunch. So damn tasty and it’s on all day, 11 to 7.
MEET SMOKIN’ GEORGE!
Smokin’ George has cooked for some of the best.
There’s no doubt he can cook anything, and not just in the smoker. George has pan-seared, fois gras-ed, poached, toasted, sauteed and flambeed just about everything you can imagine and for some of the finest establishments. But his love of wood-smoking and BBQ grilling has surpassed them all. Because anyone, old, young, rich poor, fat, thin, vegetar… okay wait… everyone loves that rich taste of Southern Style BBQ. We know you will.
Time and time again.
