Bootleggers Scottsdale Smokehouse Video Review

Bootleggers  Scottsdale Modern American Smokehouse  – Scottsdale Restaurants Video Review

It is amazing just how many great restaurants there are in not just Scottsdale, but specifically in Old Town Scottsdale. We truly are lucky to live in such a great city and to be able to experience so much great food. In today’s video review we ventured to one of those great Old Town Scottsdale restaurants called Bootleggers. It is located just east of Scottsdale Road on 1st Street.

Bootleggers  Scottsdale dubs itself a Modern American Smokehouse and after we personally experienced it. We cannot and will not argue with that description. Except Chris might want to add that it’s a Real Deal Modern American Smokehouse.

Don’t believe us? Perhaps if we list the items that you get in their BBQ Sampler that will sway you? We are talking about 14-hour smoked brisket, 10-hour smoked pulled pork, Organic turkey breast, brined overnight, rub + smoked 4-5 hours, Smoked Schreiner’s Hot Link and last but certainly not least, Smoked St. Louis Ribs. If that doesn’t tickle your pickle, then I don’t know what does.

Speaking of tickled pickles, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the fact that Bootleggers also serves up a variety of flavored moonshine. If you partake, make sure to get a moonshine flight so that you can sample a couple different flavors.

Now to the video review, in the video we get after it on some moonshine. We experience the legend that is the Bacon Board, and we enjoy some amazing smokehouse food. Miguel also continued failing at his quest to be the first to try something however he did meet a new friend along the way. Shout out to Harlan!

Enjoy the video, and then go try Bootleggers Scottsdale out for yourself. Make sure to ask for Lauren. She is awesome! Also, make sure to try the Pickle Tickler, which is a shot of 100 proof Habanero infused shine and a pickle back. It really is quite refreshing, once you get past the tears. America!

I am a food lover, as well as a food fighter. I never underestimate the power of positive thinking. I don't get up before hitting snooze at least three times, and I haven't ever met an order of chips and salsa that I didn't like.

    I would love to try it BBQ and MOONSHINE. What more could a girl ask for

  4. […] Why they made our list: Bacon boards, moonshine, pulled pork and brisket. What more can we say? This is one of two great BBQ spots that made our list and both are equally great and warrant a visit. We’ll get to the other further down the list. Check out our Video Review. […]
