MTLReview

When Blackstrap BBQ first opened in Verdun in 2012, Montrealers headed here in droves. Years later, this smokehouse is as good as ever, and the neighbourhood - once a somewhat bleak part of the city - is thriving. You can’t go wrong with brisket, ribs, or chicken, but the burnt ends poutine is a must. Come with a few people even if you have to round up strangers on the street (it won’t be hard once you mention Blackstrap) and plan to share a bit of everything.
