Opening Night at the Smoke Joint

My husband and I just had dinner at the Smoke Joint, a new BBQ restaurant in Ft.Greene, where the Cambodian restaurant used to be.
They just opened tonight.

While they have some service issues to work out, the food was great! We had the baby back ribs, something called 'hot links' which was hot sausage, kale, macaroni & cheese & cole slaw. Cooked just right, not greasy, not too sweet, and good-sized portions. Good beers, too, with unusual brands like "Porkslap" (how could you not order this one at a BBQ place?). Staff was friendly, if a bit harried. No desserts yet....and I really wanted some key lime pie to finish.
