Blue Door Smokehouse – Lexington, Kentucky

Blue Door Smokehouse = Amazing

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.

    • Nope, I’m using the urban dictionary version. Click on the word in the story and you’ll see what I mean.

    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…
