Squealers Smokin’ Trail
With a vision of the finest Barbeque, Squealers Award Winning Barbeque hit the road to put their stamp on the BBQ competition circuit. The first step was to equip a well thought out design for their custom smokin’ wagon. The end result: A 30-foot enclosed trailer, with a 500 spk smoking bad boy with a 3-bay sink system and refrigeration. Very easy to see, it’s “all in” on this one.
With the smokin’ wagon ready Squealers started their journey in the world of cooking outstanding barbeque. Competing and selling in more than 24 cities in 1999, Squealers got a real feel for what it takes to score high with the judges and win over the (now) loyal customers. Achieving over 65 awards at assorted National barbeque, World barbeque, and Ribfest events through the South, East, and Midwest, Squealers wanted to bring home all the expertise they had acquired. As the smoke grew high so did the need for Squealers to fuel the fire.
In May of 2001 came the first Squealers dine-in barbeque restaurant in Mooresville, Ind., with 175 seats, a full bar, and a banquet room to hold 125 people. In addition, Squealers had that one extra ingredient to make a giant splash in Mooresville: GREAT BARBEQUE. Squealers delivered… and is now known for great eats miles around. It was not long before it was time to make a wave in a bigger pool.
In 2004, Squealers Award Winning Barbeque did it again. The Indianapolis location at West 86th Street was equipped with 212 seats, a full, separate bar, and 2 spk 1000 Southern Pride smokin’ pits. They were ready to tag the Indianapolis market with great award winning southern style barbeque, once again hitting a home run with this outstanding and truly authentic smoked barbeque.
In 2015, Squealers opened a third Central Indiana location in the Castleton area of Indianapolis, just north of the popular Castleton Mall. Patrons can enjoy the authentic barbeque they have come to expect from Squealers, and their dining experience is fully enhanced in a family and fan-friendly atmosphere, complete with 11 TVs and 20 beers on tap.
With three locations in Central Indiana, Squealers continues to be a staple in the Indiana barbeque scene and a consistent favorite for authentic smoked barbeque, weekly lunch specials, kids menus, senior specials and more — there is something for everyone. Enhancing their local impact, Squealers continues to partner with the not-for-profit Indiana Pork, which represents the state’s 3,000 family pork farmers through the pork check-off program. Additionally, Squealers exclusively uses Indiana Kitchen pork through a continued partnership with the Delphi-based pork processor Indiana Packers, which accounts for approximately 3 tons of smoked ribs and pork weekly between their two central Indiana stores.
Squealers has become a favorite stop to many around. We’re the real deal — come join us for lunch or dinner, we would be happy to have you!

“You can never go wrong with St. Louis style ribs (mix the hot and smokey sweet sauce) with fried biscuits and some green beans. It’s good anytime, but especially after the Indy 500. Nice recovery meal followed by a long nap.” – Jay C., Fort Wayne
“You gotta start your meal with the BBQ nachos. And then move on to the oh-so-smokey brisket with a mix of hot and sweet sauce. The sides are all good, don’t get me wrong. But I could live off the nachos and the brisket.” – Julie M.
“Last summer, I hosted a reunion with a large group of guys I served in the Marine Corps with. We decided to make Squealers pulled pork the main food and bought 13 lbs of bulk. It was a huge success and is still talked about amongst us Marines. Thank you, Squealers, for helping us serve the ones who served with so much pride.” – Rick N., Martinsville
