Summer Pop-Up Edition ~ Art of BBQ ~ 320 Queen St E

Happy Canada Day!!!  Was walking through Moss Park on my lunch-hour recently.  Just west of Parliament, on the north side of Queen, came a across a flurry of homemade signs pointing me to Art of BBQ, a new summer pop-up at the back of an empty lot.  I was equally hungry and intrigued.

Spoiler alert… this place checked all the boxes for the Toronto Food Blog: No Frills, Good Food, Good Service, Cheap Eats

Chatted with owner Trevor David as he made me a combo plate.  We listened to the Motown classics blasting out of his car.  He’s doing apple-wood-smoked chicken & ribs all summer long.  CASH ONLY!  Using the kitchen of neghbouring Baggo Wine Bar, he’s hoping to turn the empty lot into a gathering place for Blues & BBQ.

I’m really glad this place has popped-up smack-dab in the middle of my work ‘hood.  Located right across from the WE Building and within walking distance of The Distillery and The Market, this sleepy spot is a great move by David from a supply & demand perspective.  Can’t think of a BBQ joint in the city where you get this much food for $10  to $15 bucks.  Apparently BBQ Cheap Eats can be a thing!!!
