Storrs Smokehouse opened its BBQ pit and doors in April 2014 and it has been smoking ever since.

Renowned restauranteurs and owners of the Painted Lady Restaurant, Jessica Bagley and Allen Routt, decided to open up this new endeavor as a tribute to Allen’s Southern roots.

Storrs, named after Allen’s mother’s maiden name, is filled with family recipes and paired with familiar Pacific Northwest flavors. Here you can find local meats smoked for days, house made sauces like Oregon Pinot Noir BBQ sauce, homemade ice cream made by the dessert chef at the Painted Lady Restaurant and local Oregon wines and beers.

“We wanted to provide the community a casual dining experience that is tourist and family friendly that served really great food.”

Located on the east-bound road of Hwy 99w in downtown Newberg, near the historic Cameo theater, Storrs has quickly become a foodie destination. Just follow the smell of good BBQ and you’ll find Storrs Smokehouse.

WWeek heads out to Newberg’s Storrs Smokehouse (which Russell, in his Reverend’s review, calls “the best new barbecue spot to open in Oregon in at least a year.”) Martin Cizmar finds much to like: The mega-portioned Gran’ Daddy plate can “easily serve two” and features “tender but pleasantly ropey” ribs and a “firm” brisket; baked beans and pickled green tomatoes are deemed “delicious.”
