This was the best BBQ I have had in a while. The brisket was superb, the chicken wings very good, the ribs were tasty, the chicken was good. All three sauces were quite good, not usually a fan of Carolina sauce but I liked theirs.
For $20.99 I got a combo platter with two sides. Also ordered a dozen wings for $10.99. Tried for dinner on a Thursday and service was fast and very good. Small parking lot but good street parking and city lot a half block up the street.

I've been here 3 times. Once when they were on Canal street and twice at their current location on Green street(formally sq. One and formerly Block 5). I ordered the food the first time on Canal, and the food was great! They had the best Jambalaya soup! I recently ordered it again a couple of months back and it was close to about 6 pm and the soup tasted like it was the last cup out of the pot scraping the burnt bottom. It just tasted like burnt soup. I ordered Bbq ribs as well and they were dry and didn't have enough seasoning. That was the last time I had been there. The second time I was there, the food wasn't bad. It seems that since they moved, the quality has gone down or the cooks are new.

Smokestack BBQ had their outdoor bar open yesterday so we watched the Bruins game from there. We shared a pulled pork sandwich topped with apple slaw (yum) & sweet potato fries as well as Ain't your Momma's Fried Chicken, 4 pieces of fried chicken (cereal crusted?) w/ great mac & cheese and very good collard greens. It was so nice to sit outside in May. They had heaters over the bar so even when the temp dipped down into the 60s it was warm. Good food, good atmosphere, unfortunate performance by the Bruins :( Recommended.
