Bogarts Smokehouse is located in Soulard next to the farmers market on 9th Street. They are owned and operated by Skip Steele and manager Niki Puto. They make some of the best BBQ in St. Louis... so good we even gave them a discount on their hosting in exchange for some food whenever we stop in to help them with any of their computer issues.
