Welcome To Jack’s BBQ
Jack’s BBQ is based on the BBQ style started in butcher shops in Central Texas in the late 1800’s. Beef and pork with a simple salt and pepper rub, smoked low and slow over hardwoods (post oak, mesquite, hickory), and served on butcher paper. Sauce is optional (sometimes not even served in Central Texas), along with pickles and white bread.
Proprietor and Pitmaster Jack Timmons is a native son of the great State of Texas and his mission in life is to make the best and tastiest barbecue money can buy in Seattle. There’s a reason why we’re on every ‘Top BBQ in Seattle’ list. We keep our menu authentic, we cook our meats low and slow, we have a great time doing it, and we have thousands of happy diners to prove it.
Serving the Best Beef in Washington State
Double R Ranch
We take great care in the sourcing of our ingredients and are proud to have worked with AgriBeef’s famed Double R Ranch in the Okanagan region of Washington for the past 5 years. The mild climate and diverse, natural and sustainable diet of the cattle raised by Double R Ranch provides us with some of the best brisket, beef ribs and prime rib that money can buy.
Featured Menu Items
At Jack’s BBQ we’re known for sticking to the classics done right. You won’t find saucy baby back ribs here or pulled pork doused in vinegar. We do traditional dry rub, low and slow Central Texas BBQ with sauce on the side. It’s all about the meat at Jack’s.
We smoke our brisket for over 14 hours using hardwoods imported from the great state of Texas in some of the biggest smokers east of the Rocky Mountains.
Frito pie is a must-have in Central Texas. We make ours with our brisket chili served over a package of Fritos topped with cheese, sour cream and jalapenos.
Beef ribs are a treat at Jack’s and are only served on Tuesday’s in SoDo and Saturday’s at our South Lake Union restaurant. They are tender, delicious and so popular we usually run out!
We’ve got all the sandwiches here at Jack’s BBQ. Whether you want pulled pork, brisket, or smoked chicken – we’ve got you covered!
