Visit 12 Bones Smokehouse in Asheville North Carolina

12 Bones Smokehouse is a popular restaurant in the River Arts District of Asheville North Carolina. There is always a busy, fast moving line of customers out the door.

From the 12 Bones Smokehouse website:

“When 12 Bones Smokehouse opened in Asheville, North Carolina, many doubted that it would succeed. From a squat building in a flood plain, the owners were serving up creative barbecue that wasn't 100% true to any single region. Yet a decade later, 12 Bones is a local institution that rivals the Biltmore Estate in popularity. (In fact, it's 12 Bones alone that has been on President Obama's itinerary all three times he's passed through Asheville.)”

Thank you to co-owners Bryan and Angela King along with Head Chef Shane Heavner and all the great staff for making 12 Bones Smokehouse the BEST place for smoked meats.

Baby Back Ribs

The massive smoker.

Blueberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce is one of the favorites.

We had the Pulled Pork, Baby Back Ribs, Pickled Okra Salad, Jalapeno Cheese Grits, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, Corn Pudding and Blueberry-Chipotle Barbecue Sauce.

All made from scratch. The meats are smoked over hardwoods.

And they have a cook book!
