Smoketown USA: Succulent barbeque & fall off the bone ribs

On the corner of Logan and Oak, in the heart of Germantown, Smoketown USA Barbeque has been cranking out good eats for close to three years.  The building that it's in was originally built in 1862, and when owners, Eric David Gould and his wife purchased it back in 2002 they immediately began restoring the place, and readying it for all the great things that they would later produce for the surrounding community.  Conveniently located between the Highlands, Germantown, and Downtown, the civil war era building that Smoketown USA is in once housed a grocery, feed and seed, and a livery. Serving anything from barbeque to pintos, ribs to smoked seafood, Smoketown is doing it.  I can remember first hearing about this place, just shortly after they originally opened, and to this day it's still nothing but a good buzz that's being thrown my way.  Succulent barbeque and ribs that fall from the bone, green beans like momma used to make, and cornbread like light fluffy heaven make this joint a must hit spot.  Smoketown also offers a full range of catering services, everything from delicious smoked barbeque buffets to box lunches for corporate events, meetings, and outings.  Located at 1153 Logan Street, Louisville, KY 40205.  Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday & Saturday 11am-11pm.  (502) 409-9180  You may also enjoy: You may also enjoy: Photo Courtesy of Damian Gerlach 
About Damian Gerlach
Born and raised locally here in the Germantown neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky. I have lived and frequented in both the Highlands and Germantown areas for the past ten years while completing my undergraduate work in communication, and graduate work in business communication from Spalding University. After the completion of both of these degrees, the most recent during the summer of 2007, I began working as a sales consultant for a large telecommunications company, as well as for a few local colleges. In 2008 I self-published my first book, "Always Coming Back," and my second late summer 2009, entitled "Bent."
