A PASSION FOR SHARING GREAT FOOD
What started through family traditions, pit master, Steve Parker's love for sharing great food is the driving force behind Parker's BBQ Pit.
From a young age, Steve learned the art of pit roasting and barbecue from his father. When the Montana Centennial Cattle Drive came to the area in 1989, Steve's father pit roasted a buffalo to honor the celebration. The beauty of that process, along with the wisdom shared by his mother and grandmother to care for the best ingredients, helped shape his passion for barbecue.
In 2015, with the encouragement of his wife and co-owner, Jennifer, as well as family & friends, Parker's BBQ Pit came to fruition serving up their barbecue as a vendor booth at powwows during the Rocky Boy's Powwow Celebration. The response from the community and visitors was overwhelming and they received a lot of encouragement to make it a more permanent business venture.
In 2021, when they had the opportunity to purchase the historic Heltne's Oil Company building, they knew they couldn't pass it up. In early 2022, their ultimate dream of bringing an old school barbecue restaurant with a modern atmosphere to the Hi-Line became a beautiful reality. There you will find a versatile menu that includes flavorful barbecue along with their famous Green Apple Slaw and Piggy Bags, which is their version of a taco in a bag for barbecue.
Steve and Jen invite you to venture into Parker's BBQ Pit for the best 'Que on Highway 2.
