The Smoke Shop is a chef-owned passion project and culmination of over two decades of practice, planning and competition-style barbecue from World Champion Pitmaster and Author, Chef Andy Husbands. The menu showcases slow-cooked, 1st place Brisket & Ribs, Burnt Ends, Texas Hot Links and more. Sides include everything from Sweet and Spicy Coleslaw and Collard Greens to The Cornbread with Honey Sea-Salt Butter. The Smoke Shop also boasts a 200+ American Whiskey selection and features elevated takes on classic cocktails. Our craft beer list is a compilation of your favorite local breweries mixed in with hidden gems worth the shout out. Combine all that with family-style hospitality and The Smoke Shop will transport you to your favorite memories of barbecues gone before.

Kendall Square has never seen anything like the Smoke Shop. The brainchild of world-championship pit master Andy Husbands, this is a stylish take on a timeless barbecue joint, but with a whiskey program that would make Jack Daniel blush. In other words, if you’re looking for the smokiest, juiciest brisket around, and want to wash it down with a flight of whiskey, welcome home. - Boston Magazine    
