As all the 5-star online reviews will tell you, Artman Country Smokehouse is the place to go for barbecue. Located close to The Villages, they slow smoke their meat—a long process that guarantees your meal is tender and made fresh daily. Fans come from miles around to sample the sliced Angus brisket, pulled pork, smoked chicken and ribs. And even if the meat is the main attraction, you’ll still want to try an appetizer like fried green tomatoes, fried okra or smoked jalapenos and to pair your meal with sides such as sweet BBQ baked beans, mac and cheese and corn casserole. After all that, make sure to end your meal with a delectable dessert—we’ve heard the cobbler is worth rave reviews all on its own.
Artman Country Smokehouse offers custom smoked meat.
Call ahead to order whole briskets, whole pork butts, turkey, ribs and take out.
