Welcome to Beach Avenue BBQ!  Pitmaster and founder, Juan Silva, began his BBQ journey with a desire to perfect the art of smoking meat low and slow (8-20 hours).  Our local favorites, smoked Wagyu brisket and whole hog pulled pork, are the reason customers keep coming back!

Due to Covid-19, only pre-orders are available with curbside pick-up on Grand Blvd. and no contact walk-in pick up.

3453 Grand Blvd., Brookfield, IL

Beach Avenue BBQ is proud of its most recent 1st Place award for baby back ribs with chocolate mole sauce in September 2018 at the Forest Park Rib Fest.  We also won 1st Place for Autumn Chili that featured smoked pork, chorizo, and hominy corn topped with an avocado aioli at the September 2017 Chili & Beer Fest in Forest Park, IL.

We believe in paying it forward, so we proudly support Chicago’s homeless with a portion of our profits.  In December 2016, we formed StreetSide – a grassroots group of men and women that cook and deliver warm meals, clothing, and self-care products in order to nourish the mind, body, and spirit of those in need.

Pitmaster Juan Silva, “The Smoke Artist” (pictured right), has mastered the savory flavors of low and slow smoked meat:  whole hog, pork ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, dinosaur beef ribs, chicken, leg of lamb, and fresh wild caught salmon.  His philosophy is, “If you can cook it, you can smoke it.”  Juan’s Chicago-Style Smoke, crafted with the optimal combination of charcoal and wood, is the ultimate barbecue experience!
