BBQ Pitmaster Will Fleischman has exited Louie King BBQ, but the brisket and ribs are still mighty fine
Well, that didn’t last long.
When Louie King BBQ opened in the former Daddy Jack’s space on Lower Greenville Avenue late last year, the orchestra of hulking ribs, turkey and brisket humming inside the Bewley smokers was orchestrated by former Lockhart Smokehouse pitmaster Will Fleischman, who returned from a book tour and some consulting to do his own thing at Louie King.
But when we popped in recently, the counter guys told us that the bearded Fleischman has left long ago, shortly after the restaurant opened. We sighed.
The upside is that the brisket, hulking beef ribs, pork ribs, roasted smoked turkey and spicy coleslaw were some of the best in town — and certainly better than some of the better known BBQ names whose pits aren’t located too far away from Louie King’s (including one close to a big lake that may be on it’s last smokey breath).
