Belmont House of Smoke

Belmont House of Smoke may be the best bbq around but they did not get that way over night. It took years of culinary and customer experience. In 2009 Belmont began cooking real barbecue-- quality meats rubbed with our own spices and cooked low and slow over a wood burning fire. The result was awesome. Real Urban Barbecue (a.k.a R.U.B.) right in the heart of Ghent! So with the help of employees, friends and family, Belmont House of Smoke was born.




Smoke BBQ

Smoke's not just about preparing food for customers! We prepare all our dishes just as we do for our family and friends. Using fresh, local, natural ingredients with our hardwood smoked meats makes the restaurant and catering services the best in the area.



Dickey's Barbecue Pit

Dickey's Barbecue Pit prides itself on authenticity, innovation and barbecue sauce, one store at a time. With roots in Dallas, Travis Dickey set out to perfect Texas-style barbecue. In 1941, Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas. Space on the restaurant's sign was rented out to help pay the start-up costs for the restaurant and the menu was limited to beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, beer, bottled milk and sodas.  Today, every location smokes all of their meats on-site at the restaurant the same way it was done in 1941. Dickey's serves up beef brisket, pulled pork, ham, polish sausage, turkey breast and chicken, with an extensive array of home-style sides from jalapeño beans to macaroni and cheese
