Natural Born Grillers: Jonesez BBQ

(Caloosa Belle/Danika J. Hopper) Grill Master, Remus Jones, keeping a close eye on the grill and smoker.

You may have seen a little brown food truck around town at a few different events or even in the Tractor Supply Co. parking lot. If you haven’t seen them, you’ve likely inhaled the heavenly aroma of their delicious barbecue as you’ve driven past them. Serving up their smoked grilled chicken, pulled pork, ribs, and their famous seasoned-to-perfection green beans, Jonesez BBQ is a family owned and operated business that began over 10 years ago, right here in LaBelle. They offer good, old fashioned BBQ made with some unique ingredients and grilling techniques that are long time family secrets. They even boast about the ribs being so perfectly prepared, they don’t even need sauce.

A vibrant and energetic staff that always seems to be laughing and smiling, are truly dedicated to spoiling their customers as they tout the motto, “Forget the rest and come get the blessed!” The portions are enormous, and the prices are shockingly affordable. They are always warm and welcoming, even as the constant, steady stream of customers line up for their tasty, homestyle cooking. As if the perfect seasonings and sauces atop mouthwatering meat and homemade sides like mac n cheese, potato salad, cornbread, and coleslaw aren’t enough, they also serve up some homemade desserts as well. A variety of cakes, cobblers, and pies can be found, but it seems the most popular of their sweets is their delectable coconut pie which sells out fast. Also, it cannot go without mentioning the hearty Jonesez Bowl, which is filled with grean beans, pulled pork, and coleslaw.

Jonesez BBQ operates year-round, and also offers parties, catering, luncheons, backyard barbecues, and pretty much any event you can imagine. Their barbecue is not just tasty, its award winning. They’ve won countless People’s Choice, Best Food Truck, and Best BBQ awards throughout Southwest Florida. Keep an eye out for the little brown trucks, as I can personally assure you, you won’t be disappointed. I’m actually covered in their amazing sauce as I type this.

You can find them on Facebook, where they announce their truck locations and daily specials, or you can contact them by phone at 239-226-6262 or email at:
