Bourbon and BBQ
Every year our family makes a BBQ pilgramage and this year we are traveling to Louisville. We'll be arriving next weekend and need recommendations for 2 dinners and a lunch. We want to eat BBQ for every meal (and maybe a couple of snacks). We'll have a car and would be willing to travel up to 1/2 hour but would prefer to stay in the downtown area since we'll be driving most of Saturday touring distilleries.
Here's a few places I have found in the past that are great. Good luck.
Smokey Bones BBQ @ 2525 Hurstbourne Gem Lane, Louisville, KY. 502 - 491 - 7570.
Bootleg BBQ @ 9704 Bardstown Rd., Louisville, KY. 502 - 239 - 2722.
Pit Stop BBQ @ 13303 Magisterial Drive., Louisville, KY. 502 - 253 - 6740.
Firefresh BBQ @ 6435 Bardstown Rd., Louisville, KY. 502 - 239 - 7800.
Smoketown USA @ 1153 Logan St., Louisville, KY. 502 - 409 - 9180. *
We had a fantastic meal there Saturday night. Brisket sandwich, beef ribs, pork ribs, and salmon were all great! Sides were fine and we were given our choice of free dessert. Place is funky in a good way with live music that provided a great background. Really enjoyed it and if we lived in Louisville we would go all the time. Hope all the BBQ lovers who do live in town (or aere visiting) give it a try!
