Mr. Powdrell's Barbeque
Our Legacy of Goodness began with Mr. Issac Britt, in 19th Century Baton Rouge, L.A. He started smoking meats over an open pit, fired by pure hickory. He found with slow smoking meats this way, the results would be tender, juicy and full of flavor. To compliment this mouthwatering meat, he created a magnificent, culinary recipe for tangy barbecue sauce.
In the late 1950’s Pete Powdrell, grandson of Mr. Issac Britt, and his wife Catherine Powdrell moved to New Mexico. Pete continued to improve his grandfathers cooking technique and original sauce, while his wife worked on desserts such as her famous sweet potato pie and peach cobbler. In the late 1960’s Pete and Catherine officially introduced Britt’s smoking style and sauce to New Mexico as Mr. Powdrell’s BBQ.
Although our beloved Pete and Catherine have since passed on the Legacy of Goodness continues with the next generation. We have been featured in many different publications such as newspapers, magazines and television. Our award winning, savory barbecue is served at 2 Locations in Albuquerque New Mexico. Our unique sauce has evolved and is loved all around the world. Our authenticity, originality and consistency have made us who we are today, Mr. Powdrell’s Barbecue – the best barbecue in town.

Loyal to Powdrell's for years. The food is always good and you won't leave hungry. I'd eat a phone book if it was cooked in their barbeque sauce. The smoked meat is delicious. The historic house they occupy is starting to get a little run down, but they're dealing with costs from a fire at their other location.

This place has been an institution for decades, and is run by the Powdrell family. The 4th St. location is the place, it's a converted house, and you eat in the spacious living room! Family atmosphere, family service with a smile. The portions are large, you won't leave hungry and you'll usually take some home. As a UNM grad, I've tried all the BBQ places in town, and I can say that the beef ribs are what to order here, and they're the best in town - big, juicy, flavorful, and saucy! It can get packed on weekend evenings, so arrive early or go during the week. It's a great place to go before balloon glow, but definitely arrive early (430pm) because everyone else has the same idea and you definitely don't want to rush anything about this marvelous dinner. You also want to give yourself parking time at the balloon fiesta. They also have a meat sampler platter which gets high marks in my book for sure! Southern style sides and desserts round out the Powdrell's experience.
