Don’t Let The Outside Fool You, This Barbecue Restaurant In Kentucky Is A True Hidden Gem
From the outside, Blue Door Smokehouse looks like your run-of-the-mill strip mall restaurant. But seriously great things await inside this inauspicious blue building…
especially is barbecue is your love language. Blue Door Smokehouse is proof positive that you should not judge a book — or, in this case, a barbecue joint — by its cover, as this barbecue restaurant in Kentucky is a true hidden gem!
Blue Door Smokehouse is the kind of hole-in-the-wall restaurant you could easily drive right by without any notice.
Don't make that mistake. Because within this cobalt blue restaurant, barbecue heaven awaits.
Blue Door Smokehouse opened in 2016 in Lexington, Kentucky, and has amassed quite a following. Why, you ask?
This is why. Blue Door Smokehouse is known far and wide for their sticky-sweet, juicy, tender, perfectly smoked meats. This is the Platonic ideal of barbecue, folks.
And this is where the magic happens. Blue Door is a true, authentic smokehouse; they slow-smoke all their meats on-site right behind the restaurant!
The result? Mouthwatering, fall-off-the bone barbecue, brisket, and ribs.
Have your meat in a sandwich or on the side... there are no bad choices here.
Seriously... these ribs have the perfect, deeply charred flavor that you only get from a low and slow trip to the smokehouse. Order your ribs with slaw, beans, collard greens, or chips.
If you're feeling extra carnivorous, skip the sides, and simply order a big, ole rack of meat. Carne cravings satisfied!
Just don't forget the dipping sauces... or the wet naps!
