Big Baby Q

Maryland Heights, MO 63043

Welcome to Big Baby Q and Smokehouse, opened Spring 2016 in Maryland Heights. An intimate, carry-out neighborhood Q-joint open for lunch only. Honestly, the freshest and tastiest BBQ smoked long and slow with oak and cherry woods.

Big Baby Q and Smokehouse was crafted from the minds of local chef, Ben Welch and his father, a celebrated artist from Chicago area, Bennie Welch. The result is a company motivated to bring St. Louis an elevated experience of great hospitality, Memphis-style dry-rubbed meats, southern-inspired sides, and desserts and full-flavored sauces always made from scratch.
