Great news for BBQ fans across North Texas and beyond. Lockhart Smokehouse will open on Wednesday, Feb. 2. It’s likely been one of the most anticipated BBQ joint openings in DFW history.
We dropped by today and met owner Jeff Bergus and pitmaster Tim McLaughlin as they get ready for the opening a week from tomorrow. We got a tour of the place and got a peek at their amazing custom-made Bewley smoker. Lockhart Smokehouse is located at the corner of Bishop and Davis, in the Bishop Arts District of Oak Cliff.
In the photo above, Tim, left, and Jeff pose with an original Kreuz Market sign that once hung at the legendary Lockhart BBQ joint. They will sell Kreuz Market sausage, some of the best in the world, and Tim trained with equally legendary Kreuz Market pitmaster Roy Perez.
I’ll post more photos from the tour later today, but here’s a taste of things to come!
