Junior makes the best brisket I've ever had. I had the chopped brisket sandwich and it was so amazing. The sauce was the perfect complement, it didn't over power the smokey flavor of the brisket and I loved every last bite!

Tender, fall off the bone ribs. Fantastic brisket. The absolute best bbq in the Permian Basin run by friendly people.

Up In Smoke serves up the best BBQ I've ever had, and I've tried a ton of spots in Midland, Dallas, Tennessee, and elsewhere. The brisket is to die for - sliced perfectly, moist but not fatty, and incredibly flavorful. The jalapeño cheese sausage was cooked perfectly, and the potato salad was a great match for my meat fiesta!

Great food!! We had brisket, chicken (which was probably the best BBQ chicken I've ever had,) potato salad (different but not bad, it's got a good flavor I just thought it was a little heavy on the eggs,) coleslaw is a vinegar based type, beans were AWESOME, BBQ sauce was fabulous, rolls and peach cobler for desert. My grandmother was extremely impressed with the dessert saying it rivaled her mother's which is a HUGE compliment!! I would definitely eat from up in smoke again.
YALL SERIOUSLY! This place is awesome. I have been wanting to try this place for a while because Junior and Jennifer are so sweet. We had chicken, brisket, and pork and beef ribs. Everything was great! In addition Junior had fixed some tenderloin stuffed with cream cheese and jalapeños, wrapped in bacon. Holy cow!!! I'm not a tenderloin person but I'd seriously order that again. We also really enjoyed the condiments (pickled cucumber, onions, and peppers). They were fantastic. I'm super cheap and the $18 a plate initially really hurt my feelings. However, this was the best bbq I've ever eaten anywhere. I would pay that again and again for the quality food that they provide. Better than any restaurant food you can get. Go see them and you won't be disappointed.

Up In Smoke catered my company's Christmas party this past Saturday and they were awesome as always! Brisket was falling apart, it was so tender. Ribs were big, meaty and loaded with Junior's Rub for Grub (which is so yummy) and my fav, the chicken legs were delicious. Portions are huge (unlike some places, where one person is allotted 2 ribs) and their sides are great! Not one compliant about them and that's saying a ton, since I had to feed 90 folks. If you're looking for a professional, top-notch caterer who will provide excellent food for your company event, give these guys a call. Jennifer, the ops manager, is wonderful to work with.
