Neighbor Tim’s BBQ

26 Jun

It has been quiet on the blog as I have been doing what everyone else is currently doing… adapting to life with a global pandemic. As a lot of people find themselves cooking more, I have purposefully tried to get takeout more in an effort to support our local restaurants. There are so many great options in the Santa Barbara area. For the latest on my local finds, I recommend checking out my Instagram – @glutenfreeinsantabarbara. It is a way for me to highlight some great local businesses in a fraction of the time that it would take to do a blog post.

On Tuesday, I tried Neighbor Tim’s BBQ for the first time. It was definitely off the beaten path as it was in the back of a parking lot on a side street near the airport. But it was worth the trek as everything I had was insanely good. All of their smoked meats, sides (other than their mac n’ cheese) and BBQ sauce are gluten-free. They even had their sauce lab tested to be certified gluten-free. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich without a bun. It came with one side – I chose the bacon baked beans. I also got a side of the corn and bean salad. When I got home, I made a sandwich out of the meat with a Canyon Bakehouse bun. It was perfect for soaking up all of the delicious BBQ sauce.

I hope you and yours are all staying healthy and sane-ish. Please let me know if there are any great local gluten-free options that I haven’t visited yet, and please… wear a mask.

    I highly recommend Neighbor Tim’s. I have tested with my Nima on several occasions & it always comes back clean. Tim was so careful about his BBQ, that he contacted me to ask questions when he needed to change an ingredient. He & his team are very aware of Celiac and do a great job protecting us!

      Hi Jolene – They definitely seem to understand Celiac and how to avoid cross contamination… And as a bonus, the food was delicious! I am already thinking of making a return trip!
