Blue Door Smokehouse Building

The BBQ at Blue Door Smokehouse is 🔥

When my wife Marcela, my bud John and I walked into Blue Door Smokehouse, we had no idea awaited us.

I’m a bit ferklempt right now.

Blue Door is a central Texas chop-house/chop-shop style BBQ joint that serves everything on trays with butcher paper.

They’ve got a good 5 or 6 homemade sides, but you won’t find cheese fries or anything like that here.

Here’s what I remember:

  • I was about to try the sauces, but the food arrived.
  • Holy shit, is that brisket great.
  • I don’t remember breathing while eating it.
  • We moved onto the smoked sausage, which I enjoyed but not as much as the brisket.
  • I was too stuffed to eat any sides.
  • Marcela and John loved everything, including the sides.
  • I don’t remember walking out of Blue Door Smokehouse, but that’s because I think I floated.
  •  John and I hit them up at 11 AM two days later while Marcela slept.
  • Holy shit, is that brisket great.
  • I moved onto the pulled pork sandwich, which I enjoyed but not as much as the brisket.
  • I was too stuffed to eat any sides.
  • We brought some brisket back to Marcela so she wouldn’t kill us.


Calling it a “most excellent” experience a la Bill & Ted is probably the understatement of the year.

Oh yeah, and holy shit is that brisket great.

P.S. This has to be the best bbq in Lexington, Kentucky.

  1. Having lived most of my life in Lexington before moving to Miami in January, my last meal at Blue Door were never-seen-before “burnt ends” of brisket. Sublime…
