Smokehouse--BBQ & Blues
15 Forks Market Road
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Reviewer's Comments: I had heard that there
was a smokehouse in Winnipeg at what is called the Forks. In the patio
area around the building the aroma of hickory smoke was in the air. Upon
entering the restaurant we were greated by friendly staff and taken to our
seats. We had walked by the cooking area and I noticed an open fire pit
area that was being used to keep items hot. I asked our waitress, who was
also the manageress, if it would be possible to take a tour of the
kitchen. She brought out Mike, the kitchen manager to talk to me. He said
that after we had eaten he would take us on a tour. They use 2 Cookshack
cookers and hickory wood for the smoke. Being as far North as this place
is and the fact that there are no other smokehouses in the city, it would
be safe to say, they are the best in town. The ribs were excellant,
brisket very tender, pulled pork had lots of Mr. Brown and the 1/4 chicken
was good. There was a lack of smoke ring, but that could be because of the
electric heat source. The sauce was a tomato based sauce with a bit of a
bite, that didn't overpower the meat. I would recommend this place to
anyone travelling in the Winnipeg area. The staff was very courteous and
helpful. Service with a smile and a great atmosphere.

The only joint in town, I believe they just opened a 2nd one on Commercial A.
The Staff is very friendly, cute girls
flirt with my son.
The meat is very tender, but lacks flavor, could be due that they use gas
smoker "Ole Hickory" We are not complaining, it's the only show in town
