If you’re a BBQ fan and live in Los Angeles, there’s no doubt know of Bludso’s BBQ in Compton. It’s either one of your top spots on your “best of” list or on your ‘must visit’ list. I’ve been (it doesn’t disappoint) and owner Kevin Bludso couldn’t be a nicer guy.

Well it looks like he’s joined forces with the guys from the upscale burger and beer joint The Golden State (on Fairfax) Jason Bernstein and James Starr to put a BBQ Joint in the location where Mark Peel’s Tar Pit once resided (see map below).
From an article in the LA Times (link below), “The menu “in its soul will be the same menu as Bludso’s,” says Starr. That means Bludso’s brisket, ribs, chicken and hot links. “And a few more items.” They are also trying “to focus all our attention on trying to create a beer list and a cocktail list that go well with barbecue,” Bernstein says. “We’re really trying to examine what that would be. The goal is to have everything really curated and not have a kitchen sink cocktail list of 30 things. Just a handful of really simple, well done cocktails.”

You really can’t beat the combo of great BBQ and craft beer. We definitely wish them good luck and can’t wait to visit when it opens.You can see the piece on the LA Times blog HERE. Updates will be coming as I get more information.
