The Smoke Shop BBQ
Classic & clever BBQ with whiskey bar
Barbecue · $$
Competitive BBQ champ Andy Husbands mans the pit at this "upscale" 'cue joint in Kendall Square where diners gather for "fantastic" trays of "spot-on" smoked ribs and brisket, whole hog meals, East Asian–inspired barbecue sandwiches and Southern sides, matched with a "large" whiskey selection; the "modern" yet rustic digs have an Americana feel and a spacious patio that hosts live music performances.

First time dining at “The Smoke House” I arrived at the tail end of the rush lunch crowd. Service was amazing and super friendly staff. The food advice was spot on by the server. I had the most tender brisket, flavorful pulled pork and hot links. Finished off with the amazing German chocolate brownie. If you are in the area, I highly suggest coming here. Way to go Boston!

The best wings you can get on Earth. Smoked then fried then covered in something awesome then covered in agave nectar. Sauces are awesome too. Darn, this is making me hungry. Order the wing bucket. It's not on the menu but it's 18 wings with a price break. Do not order the spicy wings. Get the bar wings. I love love love spicy wings but these miss the mark and the bar wings are legitimately the greatest wings on Earth.

Wonderful welcoming staff and a nice atmosphere. Good menu with a nice variety. I had been here before and remembered that the ribs were really good. This time I got the ribs and brisket and the flavor was just not there. I just couldn't find the smoke and the dry rub was just not outstanding. The ribs were cooked just right but the flavor just wasn't there. A wonderful coleslaw and good cheese grits.
