Smoke in the Pit coming soon to Powderhorn
Beloved BBQ joint resurfaces in Powderhorn this winter
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.
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.
