Venture out and into a uniquely distinctive and delicious Southern style BBQ experience.
Smoketown Blues welcomes you to a slice of Southern pleasure in the heart of downtown Valparaiso. Our BBQ combines a unique balance of the finest meats, smoke-kissed flavor, locally farmed ingredients, signature sauces, spice blends, and woods sourced from the South.
WE ONLY SMOKE THE GOOD STUFF
Our process might not be the easy way, but it’s the only way to bring authentic Southern BBQ to Northwest Indiana.
Natural woods from the American South
Woods sourced from the Southern region of the United States marry gentle flavors—a combination of apple, hickory, cherry, and pecan — with our premium cuts of meat.
Clean fire and thin, blue smoke
A clean-burning fire at just the right temperature produces thin, blue smoke — a smoke free of harsh properties and full of that familiar, delicious character.
Smoke-kissed and perfectly finished
Signature blends of smoke, dry-rubs, and sauces create a delicious, thin outer bark and an inner “smoke ring” revealing tender meat inside — the hallmark of artisan BBQ.
