Many of the spots this list take an artisanal approach; curing and smoking meats themselves, whipping up aioli from scratch, or taking liberties with the recipe, diverging-from the three namesake ingredients by swapping lettuce for bolder arugula, or fresh sliced tomatoes for roasted or fried variations.

Here are the best BLT sandwiches in Toronto.
