Alpharetta: Smoke Jack
Smoke Jack is in old Alpharetta (I bet you didn't even know there was such a thing as an old Alpharetta). This is a modern, upscale BBQ place. The decor is very pleasant and woody without being rustic.
I started off with a wedge salad. It was smothered in a very good bleu cheese dressing---why bother with a wedge if it isn't gooey? It was also loaded with bacon, which is especially appropriate for a BBQ venue.
I tried a sampler plate with chicken, pork, and burnt ends (beef). All were excellent, with the burnt ends being my favorite due to the texture. The pork had a very good mustard sauce; they also serve a North Carolina style vinegar sauce. The ribs are St. Louis style, so they go for a variety of BBQ styles.
