Stacy's Smokehouse to Open a Second Location in Scottsdale

Sounds as if Scottsdale residents will soon be getting a taste of their own drool-worthy 'cue from Stacy's Smokehouse, the tiny, no-frills purple building on Indian School Road and 16th Street.

Between bites of rib tips smoked over almond and hickory wood and doused in Stacy's sugary-sweet sauce, I recently spoke with an employee who told me chef Stacy Phipps is planning to open a second location in Scottsdale on East Shea Boulevard (where the KFC used to be), and hopes to open by the end of June or early July.

Stacy's is also planning to bottle and sell their signature barbecue sauce, but that plan won't be put into action until after the Scottsdale location opens.

Here's hoping Stacy's brings their homemade German chocolate cake to the new Scottsdale location as well. I chased my rib tips down with a thick, sugary, coconut covered slice, and left a happy woman.
