Bone Fire Smokehouse
Tasty BBQ and Live Music
Originally founded in Kingsport by Doug Beatty in 2007, Bone Fire Smokehouse has been operating in Abingdon, Virginia, in the former Withers Hardware Store building, since 2012. At Bone Fire Smokehouse, they take great pride in the ability to provide delicious smoked meats paired with unique, high country side dishes at an affordable price.
In addition to the food, Bone Fire Smokehouse is noted for its vintage hardware store home, and the outstanding regional and national musicians they bring to their stage. They strive to be not only the area's favorite place to eat but also the favorite place to see and hear the music. Between sets, there is a wide array of tasty barbecue to choose from. All the standards are there, available in sandwiches and platters.
When asked what attracted him to Abingdon, Mr. Beatty said: "its beauty, its history, and its music. There is a real renaissance happening in this area, and Abingdon is right in the thick of it. With new ideas and people moving to the region, this is a very exciting time for the growth of this area." With such a rich history in Abingdon, and in the Bone Fire Smokehouse location, it is easy to see why it's become a popular choice among residents and tourists—not just for music, but for delicious ‘Q as well. In fact, Bone Fire was last year's Regional Winner of Best BBQ by "Virginia Living Magazine." Bone Fire was also awarded the honor of "Best Ribs in America" by "Regis and Kelly" in 2009.
