Smoke Modern Barbecue Restaurant Review

: The macaroni and cheese at this citified barbecue spot is the stuff of adult fantasies---if the child in you isn't averse to the iconic elbow noodle arriving all gussied up with smoky pulled pork, specks of fresh jalapeƱos and spring onions. Nor can we pass up the cornmeal-crusted oysters, fresh corn muffins slathered with cane syrup butter, and the deviled eggs. Do what the locals do: show up with a gaggle of starving friends, load up your table with a smorgasbord of bona fide barbecue staples---pork spareribs, beef brisket, garlic-rubbed chicken, smoked prime rib, and the barbecued shrimp tumbling with grits---and stuff yourself silly. Each night features a different special, ranging from barbecued fish in a bag to the glazed double pork chop stuffed with smoked shrimp. Go grabby for the napkins, knock back a potent cocktail or a Southern beer, and thank the town of Basalt for bestowing upon its residents a restaurant that crowns old-fashioned American 'cue with smokin' contemporary flourishes.
