Delicious, delightful, distinctive, Pitmaster BarBQue makes Idaho proud! We rolled in to town late and hungry, but we were lucky because it was Friday night (when they’re open an extra hour) and Pitmaster was celebrating opening day at their second, near the mall location. I...More

Pig candy and cornbread were the best part of the meal. Pork ribs were really good. Pulled pork and chicken were fairly normal, but all yummy with Chipotle sauce. Wasn't a fan of the mac n' cheese, but I'm a mac n' cheese snob.

Went here for lunch and tried the special called the "Robs Special". It was delicious. The brisket melted in the mouth and they were nice and thick for a sandwich. The fries are homemade as well as the corn bread. Will definitely come here again.

Friendly staff and tasty BBQ. We had the pulled pork and pulled chicken. The sauces were a good compliment.

Everything was good! Although we love BBQ, there is always something at every BBQ that we don't like as much. We liked everything at this BBQ!!! And we were able to finish our meal with the best corn bread we have ever had!

The Pitmaster BarBQue Company first began when owner Rob Harding got started cooking BBQ in Terre Haute, Indiana. Since then, Rob has traveled all over the Midwest sampling ribs, brisket, and pulled pork in order to gain experience and knowledge in order to perfect his technique and recipes. As his expertise in the BBQ industry grew, so did his motivation and desire to become a creator of world-class BBQ. After countless experiments and trials, Rob went out and bought a small water smoker and started making delicious ribs. Rob's first break occurred when he was offered to cater a rehearsal dinner. Coincidentally enough, some of the bride's family members had been judges at the 'Memphis in May Cookoff', one of the largest invitational cook-offs in the world. "Don't change a thing!" And "We loved the ribs" were just a few of the flattering remarks heard by the guests at this very first event. All it took were those responses to know that it was time to get cooking.
