Award Winning BBQ


In less than a year, the Smoke Pit has been named the best restaurant in Cabarrus County, with a customer base that exploded from a simple 30 people a day to 700 people a day since it opened its doors in December of 2014.

In the short time we have been open, we have earned numerous accolades, including Golden Helmet Restaurant of the Year status.

We are the number one restaurant on Yelp for Concord and have been named numerous times among the top things to do in the area.
