About Us

Stone Jug Barbeque is a family owned business. We use the best raw ingredients and our unique blend of spices, sauces, and applewood smoke for a barbeque experience that we are proud to serve family and friends.

You can smell the applewood smoked meats before you even walk inside our Peru barbecue restaurant. The environment is rustic, warm and cozy for lunch or dinner with friends, a large holiday party or family get together.

Our dry rub and applewood smoked meats closely resemble Memphis style barbeque with a sweet, yet tangy spice. Let's not forget about the sides - family recipes that we've been "taste-testing" for years. The truth is we love barbeque! We've tried BBQ from all over the US, and we know what we like. Stone Jug Barbeque is our way of sharing our passion with others. We hope you enjoy!

If you don’t have time to stop, give us a call and grab it to-go. When it’s about dinner time but you don’t want to cook, give Stone Jug a call and we’ll have it hot and ready for you when you arrive.

We cater events and parties of all shapes and sizes from wedding receptions to office holiday parties. We can deliver our delicious barbecued meats and sides by the pound right to you!

There’s no place in the Illinois Valley like Stone Jug Barbecue and people come from miles around to enjoy it. Isn’t it about time you dropped by?
