    I would avoid the pulled pork sandwich, vastly overrated - and costly for what you actually get. You're better off getting the Rhapsody in 'Cue, which lets you sample some of it, along with other much better BBQ items.

      Avoid the fish. And Jem, what did you not like at blue smoke?

        i vaguely remember not liking the mac and cheese, cheese fries and the coleslaw, thus the post to make sure i dont't revisit the bad dishes.
        i enjoyed the smoked chicken, the beef ribs and the beet salad. my husband likes the peel and eat shrimp.

          I don't recall enjoying their coleslaw either.

          Things we seem to order over and over are the wings, fry bread and BBQ chips and blue cheese dip.

          A little Fry Bread tip: Request a little jalapeño marmalade on the side. They used to serve it that way but switched to an herb butter at some point. If you ask they'll bring both. It's like a savory fried donut without the filling.

        I think bbq in general there is average and their mac and cheese is overrated. They are all about the sandwiches in my book.
