    12 Bones Smokehouse in Asheville, NC

    My wife and I camped for five days around Brevard, NC this past weekend for our 1 year anniversary. We made a point of stopping at well-reviewed bbq joints coming and going, and on our way back we took a detour into Asheville to hit up one of 12 Bone's two locations. There was a line out the door, but it moved quickly, and the food was well worth the wait. It seems like they pit-smoke their meat and finish it on a grill, and their name-sake, 12 bones, is based off their quirky rib sauce flavors. Among the choices of the day were Cheerwine, Carolina Red, Blueberry Chipotle, Brown sugar, and pepper sauce. I got a half rack of Cheerwine-sauced ribs with a side of chopped brisket tossed in red sauce, and my wife chose their pulled pork tossed in the same. I have to say, the meat held up their reputation, but the real star for me were the sides. Jalapeno cheese grits, Sweet corn puddin, home made beans, pickled okra salad, smoked potato salad, mashed sweet potatoes...all fantastic. We got a lb of brisket and pulled pork to go.

    I'll definitely be stopping by here any time I'm in Asheville, I'd recommend it to anybody in the area.

    Flavorsavor, Congratulations on the anniversary and I finding a Great Place for Dinner! 👍👍👍👍👍 That's some Georgous Country you were Camping In? Dan


      Thanks Dan! Yeah it was picture perfect for our whole stay. Clear skies day and night, the trees just coming into color, and comfortable temperatures. We like to get up there at least a couple times a year.


        I've got family that live there, their Instagram pics are always breathtaking. My wife was there for a wedding this time last year and raved about the scenery in Brevard. My nephew in law proposed to his now wife at one of the waterfalls there and that pic is so cool. Glad you had a good time.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
