New Hettick restaurant becoming famous for BBQ

New life has blown into Hettick in a very aromatic way. Each morning the smell of Ben Jackson’s beef brisket, smoked sausage and smoked pork wafts through the downtown area.

Jackson opened Jackson’s Fox & Hound BBQ along Route 111 in the Village of Hettick last fall. Since then he has enjoyed a steady stream of local customers and is fast becoming a destination restaurant.

A love of barbecue and the hopes of putting Hettick on the map led Jackson to this venture. He’s operated a commercial smoker for events for family and friends for the past few years and has perfected the craft of smoking meat. His menu includes pulled pork, beef brisket, smoked sausage and smoked ham. He also has an arsenal of side recipes from family in Kentucky that round out his menu, the most popular being his hash brown casserole.
