Better than Gates BBQ!.
Not for nothing, but I liked this place better than Gates BBQ. Such hopla over Gates, I couldn't even eat it. Gates was way too salty. Smokebox lives up to the name. You walk in and smell that delicious smoked food. Had ribs, they were fall off the bone, brisket was good also. Prices good. Thanks for the good food Smokebox.
Typical Average KC BBQ Joint.
There's never a bad BBQ joint in KC and Smokebox proves it. A little-known joint near the Airport, provides decent quality ribs and brisket. Sometimes a bit "over-smoked" but not oversmoked like some joints. Good Beans too. Reasonably priced. A bit crowded at lunch sometimes but they service to-go orders fast.
It is a sweeter sauce than some in KC which I find is a drawback.
Brisket isn't close to Arthur Bryants quality & is more like Zarda or Smokestack's and is a bit leaner perhaps. Still a thumbs up from here.
