Sparks BBQ – We are Traverse City’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 microwave, no flat-tops, 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 style pit bbq food trailer. After just one year of operations with its overwhelming support from the community he then moved operations inside at 439 E. Front Street, Traverse City in early 2016. Sparks BBQ model of excellence includes not only the quality of foods served but the service itself, everyone is welcomed like family and treated like our best friends.
