About Us

Stone Jug Barbeque is a family owned business that starts with the best raw ingredients, our unique blend of spices, sauces, and smoked applewood bring you 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 it in many regions, and we know what we like. Stone Jug Barbeque is us 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 offer meats and sides by the pound as well.

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 right to you!

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