Dub’s Place now serves barbecue full time

After purchasing a smoker at the end of last year, Dub’s Place is now serving barbecue full time. Previously just a special, Dub’s barbecue Boston butts and pulled pork are already gaining a reputation as some of the best in town, said Dub’s owner Jordan Miller.

“Chattanooga has lots of barbecue — nothing great,” he said. “This is great barbecue. I’ve had people say they still taste it the next day in their mouths.”

Anyone with meat they want to smoke, such as deer, fish or turkey, can bring it by Dub’s and have it smoked for a small fee, Miller added.

While the restaurant is not at risk of closing, Miller said he is trying to recoup after having to spend $10,000 on a new grease trap for the restaurant required by the Hamilton County Water and Wastewater Treatment Authority.

He said multiple restaurants in Hamilton County outside Chattanooga have been forced to close due to the WWTA’s new requirements.

“It’s going to be a real important summer,” said Miller. “We’re definitely going to need the Chattanooga community’s support to keep rolling along.”
