Headliners debuts smokehouse

Daily Staff

Headliners, 2430 Lincoln Way, is well known for its bar and local music scene, but it will soon introduce something new for Ames residents.

The bar will add a smokehouse, which will open to the public for lunch and dinner starting Wednesday. 

The smokehouse will take on a local vibe as they plan to buy only local or Midwestern products. Chefs will hand-select their meat and then create their own spice recipes according to the cut of meat, which then get slow-smoked with hickory wood.

Headliner’s Smokehouse also features homemade barbecue sauce, which will be sold for $5 a pint.

Starters include deep-fried pickles, homemade chips and beer-battered fries.

The smokehouse also features a special burger that gets smoked before being finished on the grill, beef brisket and pulled-pork sandwiches and smoked chicken wings all for $5.

Dinners include baby back ribs, smoked with Gordon’s Original BBQ Sauce. The half rack is available for $9, while the full rack is $15.
