Smoke & Sow is one of Yukon's best restaurants, and we've climbed a hill or two to get where we are. We've got the goods, and we want to share them with you! You can find our brand new BBQ restaurant in Porter Creek.

This adventure comes from a love for delicious food. It started right here in Whitehorse, where our founder and chef, Ray Magnuson, was born and raised. Ray developed a love for culinary arts at a young age, and his passion eventually led him and his future wife, Dayna, to Calgary to continue their education.

Ray obtained his Red Seal and worked with several renowned chefs at a handful of fine eateries in Calgary, while always maintaining his obsession for simple, home-style barbeque. He and Dayna were married in 2013 and eventually found themselves back home in Whitehorse with dreams of opening a restaurant.

After a lot of hard work, the dream became a reality! 2020 is year three for Smoke & Sow, and we spent the summer in Rotary Park bringing you the pulled pork and brisket you know and love. We added chef Steve to our squad this year, and we're VERY CLOSE to opening our full restaurant in Porter Creek (aka PORKer Creek), where we'll slingin' mouth-watering authentic southern barbeque to the people of this fine city.
