The Scoop: What’s smokin’ at Boogaloo

November 29th 05:11pm, 2010

090710_boogalooWhen The Scoop learned back in early September that Boogaloo was up for sale, we worried it might mean we’d have to say farewell to the Maplewood restaurant. Fortunately, local restaurateur and chef Mike Johnson, who was already a minority partner in the business, recently purchased additional shares in Boogaloo, giving him controlling interest in the restaurant, as reported by St. Louis Magazine’s George Mahe.

Not only will Boogaloo live on under Johnson’s command, but things at 7344 Manchester Road are gonna get smokin’ – literally. Johnson told The Scoop that he bought a smoker from Cape Girardeau maker Ole Hickory Pits – the same kind used by local barbecue giant Pappy’s Smokehouse, he added. Besides smoking 80 slabs of ribs at a time, Johnson plans on using the monster ‘que for turkey, brisket, pulled chicken and pork, salmon and trout. These smoked meat, poultry and fish items will land on the new menu, which will roll out when the New Year rings in, but watch for them as specials throughout this month.
