Smoke BBQ (3351 NE 32nd Street, Fort Lauderdale) had been on my must-eat list before I visited their full-fledged restaurant in Delray Beach. But, unfortunately, don’t look for it cause it’s now closed.
There is, however, a newer Smoke BBQ in Boca Raton that has technically replaced it.
It turns out that the pastrami and jalapeño cheddar sausage, my primary motivator for going to Smoke BBQ, are only on the Fort Lauderdale location menu.
I rearranged a few things on my schedule and made my way to the restaurant I should have visited originally in the first place.
The Lauderdale spot is a chophouse and a no-frills BBQ spot that envelopes you with an intoxicating smoky scent when you walk in.

Meat Marriage at Smoke BBQ?
According to Boca Magazine, the beef brisket is brined for seven days and is So Good You’ll Want to Marry It. I agree 100% with that statement.
The first couple of times, I asked for a half-pound portion and then had to get up to make the line again for another half-pound. So don’t be like Beast; order the pound right off the bat and save yourself the wait.
I was right to want the pastrami sandwich and jalapeño cheddar sausage. They’re still my two favorites items on the menu. Make sure to get there early for the pastrami as it does tend to run out first.
Two other things to be on the lookout for are the burnt ends available only on Friday evenings and the Texas-style beef ribs on Saturday nights.
Since my initial visit, I’ve eaten or, should I say, thoroughly enjoyed lunch at Smoke BBQ multiple times.
The burnt ends and beef rib has eluded me, but their day is coming!
Oh yes, make sure to get the cornbread and don’t share.
