We’ve been eagerly awaiting the opening of Smokies, Broken Arrow’s newest, locally owned BBQ joint, and finally noshed on their mouth-watering chow this past week. We ordered the combo platter (2 meats, 2 ribs, 2 sides & Texas toast for $12.95), plus an order of onion rings and a side order of smoked bologna. The ribs hooked us at first bite. We had planned to enjoy more ribs earlier this evening, but they are already in high demand and I ordered too late! This smokehouse is the real deal, Oklahoma! And it is worth every minute of the drive to BA.
Beer-battered, crunchy, deeee-licious onion rings, don’t pass ‘em up!!
Combination platter with (those yummy) ribs, brisket, pork and sides
Smokies’ ribs are melt-in-your-mouth tender and full of tantalizing smoky flavor, but without excessive fat and grease. Both the pork and the brisket were also flavorful, moist and tender. The sides were tasty too. Several Oklahoma-crafted BBQ sauces (including some new ones for us) are available at each table and don’t forget to visit their self-serve pickle, onion and pepper bar.
You might be a mom (and a Pinterest addict) if the sight of their chalkboard topped tables and cute little tins of chalk excites you almost as much as the pleasurable aroma of smoked meat. I tried to create some original artwork while we waited for our food (a very short wait), but little fingers were more interested in abstract smears.
