My intent was to go to Hill Country but they were closed for a private party. Must've been a huge event because they had three trailer smokers going outside and I'd imagine they have pits within the establishment as well. So I googled what else was close because I didn't want to drive all the way uptown to Dinosaur (which I love. "Tres Amigos" is my dish because I prefer samplers of different meats). So my choices, within walking distance were RUB and Blue Smoke. Family vote took us to Blue Smoke(probably because it was slightly closer). I ordered the "Rhapsody in ’Cue" which is Kansas City Spareribs, Pulled Pork, Smoked Chicken and Sausage. I enjoyed the ribs and pulled pork but felt the Chicken was a bit on the dry side. By the time I got to the sausage I was so stuffed I could only manage one bite but it was pretty good. This was awhile back but I'd go to Dinosaur over BS anyday. Still need to make a trip to Hill Country and and RUB.
