Blue Pit BBQ is perhaps the newest locally owned BBQ joint to open in Baltimore. Not to throw any shade at Dinosaur BBQ, it’s good there, but I prefer spending my money on local establishments. A friend and I both really love meat, specifically brisket. After spending a few hours texting about meat and BBQ, we knew we had to satisfy the craving and both try the highly recommended Blue Pit BBQ in Hampden.
Blue Pit is counter service only so it’s very casual. After looking over their menu, my friend and I each decided on a Brisket Plate. The plate came with corn bread, pickles, and two sides. The brisket was rubbed with zekes coffee. I thought it was great, and packed with flavor, and even better when dipped in one of their many BBQ sauces. I would return just for this. The cornbread was great, perfectly moist. I wasn’t in love with any of the other sides, not that they were bad, but not the best I’ve ever had.
