Our Man Sietsema: 'Maple is Brooklyn's mesquite'
This week, the impossible happened. Our man Sietsema bestows praise onto a babrcue joint born in the big apple.
Fort Greene's laid-back Smoke Joint gets the OK for its genuine dedication to, you know, smoke. We would also like to put in a good word for the yummy beer and the iceberg wedges, which, granted, are hard to mess-up, but just having them on the menu deserves some love. Sietsema isn't wild about the sides, but that seems to be a tradition with barbecue. My nephew would beg to differ re: the mac n' cheese.
