Description: Smokehouse and Gathering Place bbq, folk & soul. Every morning, before the sun comes up, our pitmasters are busy firing up the smoker to serve you the freshest, tastiest meats. We smoke our ribs all day to ensure you get them straight off the pit. We believe in buying locally. Our menu is smoked in Ole Hickory Pits, built in Saint Genevieve, and smoked with a combination of wild cherry and hickory sourced from Terry, "the woodman", from Perryville, Missouri. The cherry gives a subtle sweetness and gorgeous color to the meat, balanced with a touch of hickory for that rounded, uniquely smoky finish. We take inspiration from across the United States, but like to dance to the beat of our own drum, infusing different smoking techniques from X, Y and Z. Our focus is, and always will be, rustic American cuisine. Our kitchen cooks from scratch. Try our legendary Burnt Ends, a smoking recipe developed by Corey, Pitmaster of Grillas Team and winner of KC Royal 2003. Our Tri-Tip Steak is an Argentinian technique, simply marinated and rubbed with salt, pepper, rosemary & garlic. Our ribs are smoky, sweet and sticky. Our chicken is smoked whole and pulled for every sandwich. We make our own bacon resulting in our famous Walnut Bacon appetizer. The list goes on … in short, we cut no corners and we love what we do: good folk, fresh bbq and honest, soulful food. We look forward to welcoming you. Sincerely and Cheers, Ally Nisbet Owner

No bookings taken. 6.45pm Saturday evening we were seated straight away. Waitress Stephanie was helpful and prompt. We tried and liked two of the craft beers on offer. One starter, being cup of chilli gumbo, followed by half rack of baby ribs + sides and a Brisket Point Burger + sides. All very tasty and quite enough to satisfy. Lively place - not a spot for an intimate dinner and noise might make a first date tricky. Some pavement seating. Would return. Cost $55.30 + tip.

The menu incudes smoked, pulled chicken and pork, as well as a few other options. There's even something for the vegetarians in the family. They have several salad options, with smoked meat or without. We started the meal with the smothered fries and the artichoke dip. And we scraped the platters clean! Everything we ate was delicious and we will definitely visit again. The service was excellent and the staff was friendly and attentive.

Loved it! The service was wonderful from Stephanie (pretty sure). The food was outstanding. We had the cornbread, bacon, and burnt ends as appetizers and I would have been happy with just that. So, so good!

The Shaved Duck was a short walk from our vacation rental and we were so glad of the recommendation. There was a wait for inside, but we were happy to sit outside on a pleasant evening. The staff were friendly and our meals were great. The flatbread with shrimp was to die for and the tri tip sandwich was very tasty. Good drink list as well.
