WHY Seriously divine smoked beef, poultry, pork, and fish.
WHAT David Handy has been perfecting his craft of smoking meat for the past 25 years, which is oh so evident after a single bite of anything off the menu. He does it all: perfectly smoked brisket, ribs, sausage, salami, pastrami, Cornish hens, ham, salmon and yellowtail. He also whips up some great fruit-flavored BBQ sauces, concocts his own rubs, and often has daily specials like fish pâté. This is not a restaurant—it’s strictly a takeout joint, and you’ll get your smoked goodies by phoning ahead or ordering in person.
