RED Quick Bite #72: A Chat with Owner of Red State BBQ, David Carroll

Welcome to Quick Bite #72!

In this Quick Bite, Aimee sits down with David Carroll, Owner of Red State Barbecue in Lexington, KY.  After we accomplished at the Run The Bluegrass, we decided to e xplore the food scene in Lexington and we had a hankering for meat...Lots and lots of meat.  Red State Barbecue did not disappoint!

We tasted our way around the menu with tender, smoky ribs with a slightly sweet dry rub bark, melt-in-your mouth brisket, juicy chicken, a coarse-ground andouille sausage, a finely-ground beef red-hot link with some kick, and wings that could best be described as the love child of buffalo and BBQ!  And the sides!  This place is a MUST-TRY on your next trip through Lexington.  It's easy if you are driving too, because they are located just a couple minutes off of I-75.
