Best BBQ and Vegan Food in Boise Idaho


In April, 2013 We started as a food truck called B-Hive BBQ & Vegan and our main spot was set up outside of Stonehenge Produce on Overland Road. By October we joined up with local sauce company My Family Tradition Sauces & Rubs and moved into the Rodeway Inn off of Curtis Road and became MFT BBQ & Vegan. One year later, here we are today in our new location back on the Boise Bench in the Vista Village with our new name BBQ4LIFE (We promise this will be our last name change). We still continue to use My Family Tradition Sauces and work closely with them but we decided to make this final name change to avoid confusion between the two different businesses and to promote what we're all about, and that is bringing you the best darn BBQ...for life!


Brad and Bre, along with their charismatic staff made us feel SO welcome and comfortable as we enjoyed they're amazing BBQ. Throw in their marquee VEGAN cornbread, and OMG!! Will definitely be back!

This was our first time here and we really enjoyed it. We shared the meat sampler with mac & cheese, coleslaw and cornbread! All Wes delicious. I definitely recommend this place.

G K. Five Star Yelp Review

As a vegetarian with other medical food restrictions, this is my FAV place to eat in Boise. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating, the food is delicious, and no one leaves disappointed.

Best BBQ in Boise IdahoBBQ

The best in all of Idaho

We specialize in traditional BBQ all smoked with pecan wood on offset smokers that we build.

You heard right

We also offer delicious smoked vegan dishes that we prepare separately from our meat items.

We have got you covered.

From small weddings the large conventions, we can offer a wide variety of amazing food for your event.

To us, it's all food and we take great pride in making sure that all dishes are prepared respectfully. We work very hard to make quality fresh foods from scratch with a do it yourself mentality. If we don't make it in house ourselves, we try to get it from a local place that does. Our optimal goal is to bring everyone to the same table, whether they have different allergies (Gluten, dairy, egg, soy, etc.) or different preferences, we strive to make everyone happy. We're a family owned and operated business and we put a lot of love into our food, we hope you can taste it!
