Read on to hear about how Brimstone PNW Smokehouse got started here in the harbor.
Chef Thad Lyman and wife Katie Doherty, owners of Brix 25° and NetShed No.9, wanted to open a barbeque joint with a twist. Bringing Will Rieck, their chef from NetShed No.9, into partnership, the trio opened Brimstone PNW Smokehouse in November 2018. This relaxed, family-friendly, and just plain fun restaurant is a smokehouse melting pot with an international flare. With its casual picnic table seating, retro video games, old casino barstools, and lively atmosphere, Brimstone brings a playful vibe to Gig Harbor. The menu encompasses a variety of flavors including seafood from the Northwest, briskets and chorizos from the South, and char siu from Asia. Not-to-be-missed items include their nachos (which you can order with or without meat) and Brimstone’s famous “Big Fluffy Doughnuts”—delectable concoctions with Pao’s doughnuts as a base and a variety of topping choices.
Like Lyman and Doherty’s other restaurants, Brimstone PNW Smokehouse is proud to give back to our community. Their donations support sports and arts for youth in Gig Harbor.
