    Any updated central-ish Kentucky BBQ recommendations?

    I'll be in Richmond KY at the end of October. About a half hr SE of Lexington. Wife and I plan to drive to to Frankfort to hit Buffalo Trace again. Are there any updates to recommendations in this general area, Richmond-Lexington-Frankfort? (Doubtful we'd venture as far as Louisville).

    No recommendations here, but high on my list in that area would be to get some of that black bbq sauce they have.

      The black sauce is more of an Owensboro/Western KY thing. You likely won't see that anywhere else.

      Meathead has an article about it:

      And if you Google it, there's lots of info and recipes. I believe the black comes from the heavv Worcester component.

      Ahh yes, the Sunlight for lamb & mutton. I wasn't thinking of that when I read your post.

    It's been a year or so since I was in Richmond, but Straight From Texas Bar-B-Que is really good, and I am almost always disappointed by BBQ restaurants. The brisket was a bit more fall-apart on my last visit than I would prefer, but the owner says he does it that way because it's what sells, and I can understand that. It tastes exactly like what I make at home on a good day. This would easily be my first choice.

    If you find yourself just a few miles down I-75 in Berea, I remember Hitz BBQ being pretty decent. Berea is an artsy fartsy kind of place, so there is other stuff to see and do there as well. If ya'll are into that stuff, I would recommend this as a side trip.

    Red State BBQ in Lexington is said to be good, but I haven't tried that one yet. It's probably worth checking out. Would love to hear the take of someone whose opinion I trust.
