The best BBQ in Albuquerque is right here at Nexus Blue Smokehouse – and we can prove it. It's no mistake that "blue" is right up there in our name. It's because we know the "secret." Blue smoke equals great BBQ.

You may think that plumes of smoke billowing from the barbeque means smoky flavor imparted into the meat. Not quite. What you are actually after are wisps of thin blue smoke. That is the indicator that your fire is not too hot or transferring too much carbon. The char on your meat should indeed taste smoky, but the wrong kind of char tastes bitter. Blue smoke means the flavor of the smoke and wood chips are clean and crisp and the meat inside the barbeque is going to come out mouth watering and tender.

We opened Nexus Blue Smokehouse because we wanted to give diners the best barbeque in Albuquerque. We’ve spent countless hour perfecting this craft; we are masters at achieving blue smoke each and every time. We have every confidence in our ability to deliver Albuquerque barbeque that you’ll come back to time and time again.

There are times when only BBQ will do. You get that craving and you just can’t think of anything else. Succulent brisket that falls to pieces with the slight tap of a fork. Burnt ends that pair perfectly with the best local beer in Albuquerque. Fish and chips with that crunchy exterior and soft, flakey interior. A pulled pork sandwich you have only ever dreamed about. When it comes to Albuquerque BBQ, we have what you crave, and we will exceed your expectations.

What are you waiting for? We won’t let you down. When you need the best barbeque in Albuquerque, you need Nexus Blue Smokehouse, the masters of that perfect blue smoke. Order for pickup or takeout or dine in. We can’t wait to delight your taste buds.
