We are Michigan’s PREMIER restaurant specializing in authentic BBQ. We proudly serve handcrafted BBQ powered by our 100% wood powered smokers. We have no stove, no oven, no flat-tops, no deep friers, its either cooked in our smoker or its served cold. Founded in 2015 by Pitmaster Dean Sparks, Sparks BBQ has quickly become the leader in authentic BBQ in all of Michigan and likely further. Sparks is a self taught pitmaster learning in his backyard and through years of practice and dedication he has perfected the craft of BBQ. In 2015 he decided to take it on the road, literally, with a mobile pit style bbq food trailer in downtown Traverse City. After just one season of operations with its overwhelming support from the community he then moved operations inside at 439 E. Front Street, Traverse City in early 2016. As demand increased Sparks BBQ quickly outgrew their first location and moved to a much larger location in downtown Traverse City at 201 E. Front Street in June 2018.
