Having moved from its East Lake Street location, Smoke in the Pit barbecue restaurant announced it will be setting up shop again, this time at 38th & Chicago, right across the street from Blue Ox Coffee.

If you never had the pleasure of sitting down to a plate of "meat and three" at the original location, here's a little more about what makes Smoke in the Pit unique and when you can expect it to open in Powderhorn.

Owner Dwight Alexander tells

The Line

that his restaurant will serve real barbecue  - not just meat that's been grilled and smothered in sauce. He says everything at his restaurant will be slow-cooked and smoked, to coax out plenty of extra flavor without having to use a lot of extra fat. 

If all goes according to schedule, Alexander will be able to open the restaurant as soon as the end of this month or in early February.

Considering how well places like Northbound Smokehouse have done in this same general part of town, the Powderhorn neighborhood is likely to welcome Smoke in the Pit with open arms. Even better? It plans to offer delivery, which will really help diversify the same old pizza and Chinese food options in the area.
