Holy 'Que Smokehouse Celebrates National BBQ Month with Complimentary Offerings, Revamped Menu

Marilyn Johnson

Holy 'Que Smokehouse, the Bucks County BYOB serving authentic Texas-style barbecue, has officially relaunched post-pandemic with an array of traditional, mouthwatering BBQ staples crafted by Founder and Pitmaster Tom Peters, including brisket, pulled pork, sandwiches, platters, desserts, and more. In celebration of May being National BBQ Month, the sought-after eatery is offering a complimentary side (think mac ‘n’ cheese, cider slaw, honey cornbread, etc.) with the purchase of any platter – available for dine-in and takeaway, all month long.

Owned and operated by Pitmaster Tom Peters, Holy ‘Que Smokehouse has been a hit with locals and visitors of nearby Peddler’s Village since opening in November 2020. Peters is a self-taught Pitmaster who spent six years perfecting the art of Texas-style barbecue following a trip to Austin, Texas. Peters’ menu is heavily influenced by traditional BBQ – incorporating smoked meats, classic sides, and decadent sweet treats typically found in the southern states. Inspired by the craft and blown away by the simplicity of this particular cuisine, which incorporates three elements: salt, pepper, and smoke.

The robust menu includes many popular BBQ meats, sold by the pound. Choose from:

  • half or full racks of pork spare ribs
  • brats
  • brisket
  • pulled pork
  • turkey

Sandwiches include:

  • The Holy Grail - an oversized sandwich packed with brisket, pulled pork, and links;
  • Texas Joe - a riff on the “Sloppy Joe” made with shredded brisket;
  • Brisket Cheesesteak - chopped brisket, sautéed onions, and house-made cooper sharp and cheddar cheese blend.

All sandwiches are served on Martin’s squishy rolls and with a generous portion of pickled red onions on the side.

Sizeable platters include:

  • The Holy Trinity - brisket, brats, and spare ribs with one side
  • Pitmaster’s Choice, a choice of four types of meat at ¼ pound each and three sides hand-selected by Peters
  • Lone Star consists of three types of meat (half pound each) and four sides.
“BBQ is one of my biggest passions, and for the sole reason that it’s all about community,” said Tom Peters, Pitmaster and Founder of Holy ‘Que Smokehouse. “It’s the only food that brings people together, which we’ve seen in the depths of the pandemic and after.”

To give back to the community and celebrate National BBQ Month, Peters and his team are providing complimentary sides with the purchase of any meat platter for May. The impressive line-up of side orders includes Pinto Beans, Mac ‘N’ Cheese, Cider Slaw, Creamed Corn, Green Beans, and Honey Cornbread. Additionally, Holy ‘Que Smokehouse boasts decadent house-made desserts, including Cast Iron Cookie and Banana Pudding – ideal for capping off such a hearty, indulgent meal. Imbibers can BYOB or opt for a non-alcoholic beverage, including Sweet Tea, Big Red, Boylans Black Cherry, etc., to pair with their meal.

Hours of operation are Thursday through Saturday from 12 – 6 pm and Sunday from 12 – 4 pm. However, the smokehouse often sells out early, so BBQ enthusiasts are encouraged to arrive early in the day to secure their meal.

Pre-order and online ordering for takeaway are available via Toast Tab or clicking here.

Holy 'Que Smokehouse is located at 5788 Lower York Road in Lahaska, PA 18931.
