KICKIN’ SOUTHERN SMOKEHOUSE IN THE HEART OF HALIFAX EPIC EATERIES & SWEETERIES W hen people think of Halifax, Nova Scotia, by Christi Rideout they have images of amazing water- front views of the harbour and feasting of some of the finest seafood the world has to offer. However, we think that one trip to Bone- heads BBQ will get residents and visitors alike coming to the city craving some kickin’ southern bar-b-que at Halifax’s Original Smokehouse BBQ Joint
A visit to Boneheads BBQ will delight your taste buds with the authentic, mouth-watering flavours of Southern style BBQ. Often referred to as ‘Halifax’s hidden gem,’ cus- tomers feel like they’ve been transported to the southern region of the United States where barbeque connoisseurs embrace their passion for this form of cooking that features a distinc- tive smoky tasting meat. Spotlight magazine recently had the pleasure of interviewing Cindy Wheatley, owner of this popular barbeque restaurant. Wheatley’s love of barbeque stems from road trips she took with her mother when she was growing up. She says she quickly became fas- cinated by the world of barbeque. In fact, she
still has the backyard oil drum smoker that she purchased years ago when her interest was first peaked. With a background in the bar industry and an entrepreneurial spirit, Wheatley has learned everything she knows from first-hand experi - ence. From her first job at 14 years old when she worked in a fish and chips shop, to serving at the bar her mother owned, to working as a restau- rant general manager, Wheatley always dreamed of one day opening her own place.
“You’d have to be a bonehead to start a restaurant these days.”
