I came on a Sunday when it was really busy, but felt completely safe. When I told the guy at the counter I had celiac, he immediately washed his hands, got new gloves, a new board, knife, and meat to cut from and made sure everyone else in the production line changed gloves as well. He even pulled a to-go box from a fresh stack. It gave me such a sense of relief! I got a pulled pork plate with coleslaw and the twice baked potato and it was DELICIOUS! While they don’t advertise the place as being gluten-free, the precautions they take and delicious food make it a must stop for someone with Celiac!

The guy on the counter was all over coelaic and straight away organised a new board, knife and gloves. Told me exactly what was safe and what wasn't. Got the other worker doing the salads to change his gloves too. Food amazing.

Great stop. Everything gf except rolls and Mac and cheese. I had twice baked potato casserole, it was great! The ribs were great. Other people in my group were raving about the pulled pork.

We ate here twice based on other reviews and it was great. After ordering GF, they automatically changed gloves, cutting board, and knife for my order. Very knowledgeable and take GF very seriously. Some of the best BBQ I've ever had and I did not get sick.

Great place for a gluten free bbq! The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable. They switched gloves between each order without us asking and clearly took gluten contamination very seriously. On top of being extremely gluten friendly, the food was incredible. Would recommend and would love to go back next time we’re in town.

Smokehouse 41 blew me out of the water! After a long day of hiking, we were looking for anything I could eat. The cashier was not very kind when I asked what was gluten free. Thankfully I asked another staff member and she was able to check for me! Once in the line, I said I needed new gloves for celiac. Without a second thought, the man got new gloves, new knife, new cutting board and new meat. He let the whole line know I was celiac. I did not feel sick afterwards and it was delicious!

Great experience today! Although the shop was very busy the man at the order desk was more than helpful and enthusiastic 😍 he just changed gloves but did that again, got a new cutting board and knife, new „untouched“ meat and informed the colleagues who take care of the sides to also take new gloves and make sure no bread touches my food. Amazing experience! 🙂 not offen you feel that safe and „normal“

The most amazingly pleasant experience I’ve had eating in a restaurant. The young man carving offered a new board and knife when I said Celiac. I apologetically said that would be great. He made me feel welcome and NOT AT ALL like it was an inconvenience! The rest of the staff all knew what was gluten free like it was no big deal!! I’m so pleased to be “no big deal!!!” Usually restaurant staff either doesn’t know gluten is or acts like it’s an imposition. This was such a fantastic experience!!! Going back tomorrow!!!!

Yummy, safe BBQ!! Came here because of other reviews and was not disappointed. The staff was super accommodating and understanding. I was told everything is GF except the bread products and Mac n cheese. For the meat I ordered, they washed hands, changed gloves, and cut on a clean cutting board with a clean knife. I even got to try a local GF cider! Highly recommend

Fantastic experience. The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free concerns. They changed gloves, used new utensils, and opened a new container of meat for the two celiacs in our group. One of our celiacs had kids pulled pork, the other has pulled chicken, no reaction for either. And…DELICIOUS!

As a BBQ snob, I have very high standards. Smokehouse 41 met them, and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. They were great about changing gloves, cleaning equipment and making sure I was safe. Will definitely eat here again!

My non-gluten intolerant husband really wanted to try this place because of its rave reviews online. We called ahead to inquire about gluten-free options and were told that their sauces and rubs are all made in-house and are gluten free.

I tried the stuffed sweet potato with pulled pork and their signature BBQ sauce. It was absolutely amazing and didn’t make me sick afterwards!
