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 Southern BBQ restaurant open for dine-in and take-out in Porter Creek, and our food truck around local events all over Whitehorse and area!

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 with simple, home-style barbeque. He and Dayna were married in 2013 and eventually found themselves back home in Whitehorse with plans to open a restaurant.

After a few changes in direction and some very uncertain times (plus a full pound of hard work), we opened a food truck (General Sow) in 2018 and popped it in Rotary Park in the middle of Whitehorse for three years. In 2020 we added chef Steven to the mix in a big way, and opened our very own restaurant location in Porter Creek (now known as Porker Creek). Life has changed in big ways since then, and we've adapted well.

In 2022 we decided to take our talents to Shipyards Park and open up the Sow Sandwich Shop! We served up fresh and creative sandwiches and sides for a year or so before deciding to shut 'er down and move lunch over to Big Sow! We officially opened for lunch at our main restaurant in February 2024!

Come down to Smoke & Sow and see what we've worked so hard for. We're open in Porter Creek 11:00-2:00 for lunch and 4:00-9:00 for dinner from Tuesday through Sunday for dine-in and take-out (no lunch on Sundays). We're proud of ourselves and we're proud to be slingin' mouth-watering authentic southern barbeque to the people of this fine city. See you over here.
