    The lunch special - any sandwich + fries $10. I had the crispy catfish and it was great. Nice atmosphere & seemed authentic. Stop by if your shopping on Fulton street

    Pulled pork is a must (get Mac + cheese and cornbread too). The pork ribs are a little too dry. But you can fix that by slathering them in sauce. The wings are a nice surprise.

    A bustling, if unglamorous barbecue spot, enjoying conspicuous location, proximity to BAM, and some deliciously and festive corn on the cob. The sandwiches outshine the dishes, but the brisket is tops

    Swine lovers take it to the next level with a topping of pulled pork butt that’s been smoked for 12 hours over ample and hickory. Read more

    Nothing beats the trays of meats emerging from the smoker downstairs. Great smoked meats with BBQ sauce & amazing sides, and bourbon selection. Nothing fancy here, just food that'll make you happy.

    Second time at the Smoke Joint, and I highly recommend it. The meats are deliciously BBQ'd Memphis style, so if you like sauce on your BBQ this isn't the pace to go. Otherwise definitely be there!

    This place in the trendy clinton hill had a friendly staff, great bbq!!! and portioned sides that you could share. The ambiance was that of a homey feel. They make there own sauces and Drinks on site.

    The sandwich special is a solid choice… I had the pulled pork with fries, pickles, and coleslaw for only $10. If you're into a more vinegary BBQ, then this is a spot for you.

    As much as I love it here, I really do, I don't think I will be back when it's hella busy! Ordered a Hot dog w/ketchup, mustard and beans & slaw. Simple yes?No! I got the hot dog & the slaw. #hurt

    pulled pork plate is great. the side of cornbread is a must, but it's huge. save room by splitting that and also ordering the corn on the cob

    The short ribs are Brontosaurus-sized, and the Buffalo wings are funkified by smoking them first. It's a veritable melting pot of a barbecue joint, much like the city it's in. Read more

    I ordered the hotdog topped with sauerkraut and pulled pork, seasoned fries, split a half order of ribs, and washed it down with iced tea. Good Eats.

    One of the best BBQ spots in BK, love their spare ribs. Relaxed divey feel, great meatless collard greens perfectly smoked (and I'm a collards connoisseur)

    On a nice weekend afternoon grab a seat outside on the deck and enjoy people watching while you take a break from your Catfish Sandwich with Spicy French Fries.

    6/10. My fellow diners said the brisket was very tough. I had the pulled pork and it was amazingly tasty and tender. We never got our sides so service could be improved.

    The food comes out really fast which is great. And everything is very flavorful. I tried the wings, ribs, pulled chicken, baked beans, corn on the cob and fries. #delicious #food

    Super affordable. Brooklyn wings are a great starter. Fries are good catfish sandwich is tasty. Mac and cheese is nothing to write home about, but all in all Smoke Joint a solid BBQ place!

    BBQ ribs half rack is always good. With some Mac n cheese on the side. Their bbq sauce (with red cap) goes well with the meat!

    I went last week and had the fried cat fish, a side of mac and the meatless greens. I was full and happy! Try the "tiger woods". Its ice tea and lemonade. Very very refreshing for the nice weather.

    Favorite BBQ in Brooklyn. Both the half chicken and Brooklyn wings are the go-to. Everything from the food to the cocktails are priced right.

    The best BBQ (pulled-pork) you will have north of the Mason-Dixon. Plus a great Bourbon selection to boot! Like sittin' on the back porch, just make sure to wear elastic waisted pants.

    It'd be really great if they'd offer a sampler plate with a few ribs, some pulled pork, some brisket, like most BBQ places do. I'd be here all the time.

    There’s not much better in this world than sitting outside and enjoying an Iceberg Wedge salad (with bacon), a Hot Links sandwich and a Kinda Sweet Tea.

    The pulled pork sandwich is delicious. Just the right ratio of meat to fat makes for a tender and juicy sandwich.

    Fort Greene’s favorite BBQ spot brings the hot meat-on-meat action by topping a Black Angus dog with pulled pork, beef or chicken (and some homemade coleslaw). Read more

    The brisket needs sauce. But good vibes and nice Mac and cheese. In fact, everything needs extra sauce.

    The chopped-beef sandwich stands out on the regular menu, and so do the Flintstone-size beef ribs from which the sandwich is made, available two to an order on their own. Read more

    Tip from Texans: Beef short ribs > pulled pork. Sides: Corn > greens > baked beans. BBQ sauce: sweet and the spicy ones are too runny. Beef ribs and corn were winners.

    Ribs are excellent! Chicken wings are a little over cooked and not spicy enough for my liking, but still good.

    Service is unfortunately terrible. That being said, the corn-on-the-cob is their best dish. Skip the Beef Brisket, and Mac-and-Cheese and try the ribs. Also, like their spicy BBQ sauce at the table.

    The food is great! BBQ and ribs are delicious The mac n cheese is pretty decent. Beware they dont have actual fountain sodas tho, they give you a can. Which sucks because it costs $1.75.
