Northern Smoke BBQ, Carmel

Cue the Beef: Owner and Pitmaster Chris DeRuzzaI, a Culinary Institute of America grad, personally ensures Northern Smoke's cuts are hand butchered and freshly smoked in batches throughout the day.

The menu is a crowd-pleaser,  everything from pulled pork tacos to a brisket wrap, chicken quesadilla, rib platter and macaroni and cheese. All rubs and sauces are made on-site. There's even homemade tea and lemonade -- as well as beers and wines --  offering up a Southern-style BBQ with a northern twist.
