The BBQ amazing and they brew their own beer.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Tucked into a beautiful old Victorian home on a side street in the small eastern Iowa town of Mount Vernon, is the "Iowa BBQ" you've been searching for.
Smoked with subtle and sweet cherry wood, their ribs, pulled pork, and smoked chicken are worth the drive.
Big's Barbecue and Brew Pub opened in the spring of 2017, so they are fairly new. They are located at 124 Second Ave NW in Mount Vernon.
Philip Smith is the pitmaster, here. Aaron Gerbo is the brewmaster. As if outstanding Iowa BBQ isn't enough, Big's also makes their own beer.
Their tasting room is just off of the full-service dining area.
You can dine-in or take your BBQ to go. They even cater.
If you can't decide what to order, just go for Big's Family Sampler.
You'll get pulled pork, chicken, smoked sausage, and ribs plus three sides. The cole slaw is a favorite among frequent visitors.
This is a great place to stop by for lunch, too.
It's all made from scratch, here. You're gonna want to put this place on your list for restaurants to visit this fall.
If you dream of smoked turkey and smoked ham on your Thanksgiving table, there's still time to let the experts take care of it for you.
