King Django Rocks the House

We are very excited to have King Django back with us for a second performance. King Django is unlike anything you have ever heard before. The Jamaican rhythms make you think you are somewhere in the Caribbean, but the Yiddish compels you to wonder if you are somewhere in Williamsburg. You are not. You are firmly planted in the mind and creations Jeff Baker, aka King Django.
you have to hear it to believe it, and when you do, you will be cool sailing on a Jewish vibe.
Bring your bottles of Red Stripe and Chill.

New York Jets Championship Packages

Go Jets!!

We think its great that our favorite Green football team has made it to the Championship game, and,while its not easy being Green, it is easy to get some great food for the game.

Joe asked me to design some special New York Jets Championship worthy packages and I invite all Jets fans to try one and let me know how I did.

The Green Machine $199
Better than Yo Mamma’s Cornbread
Ari’s or Buffalo Wings
Signature Guacamole, Pico de Gallo Salsa, and Housemade Tortilla Chips
Shredded Smoked BBQ Brisket, Brioche Buns, and Barbeque Sauce
Smoked BBQ Chicken
Crispy Fried Chicken
Smokey Joe’s Competition Chili
Cole Slaw
Mashed Potatoes

The Pittsburgh Pain $299

The Rusted Steelers $99

Better Than Yo Mamma’s Cornbread
Ari’s or Buffalo Wings
Signature Guacamole, Pico de Gallo Salsa, and Housemade Tortilla Chips

Each package feeds 8 fans, which in football talk means that if you get all 3 you should be able to feed one Defensive Line or ½ of an Offensive Line!


Jets Are Going All the Way

The improbable win of the Jets over the Pats is nothing short of astounding and inspiring. The erratic Jets were up against the clear Superbowl favorites. There wasn't a sportswriter who didn't pick the Pats to go all the way. Only a handful of people believed in the Jets. Pats fans must have crowded into Gillette stadium, confident and smug in their teams imminent victory over the wobbly Jets. And then the Jets opened a can of whoop ass on the Pats. They dominated from the very beginning, but with a team as confident and capable as the Pats, you never want to start counting your chickens before they hatch.

I was not a Jets fan (though I am now!) I remain a Giants fan. I was at the 2007 game between the Giants and the Pats, the one the Giants lost 35-38. Recap  But, at that game I saw the flares of brilliance that would ultimately lead to a Giants victory in the Superbowl. I see the same quality in today's Jets. I am greatly pleased that it was another New york team that lead to New England's defeat, ending their season.
So, with the "clear favorite" out of the way, only the Steelers stand in the Jets way. But Pittsburgh Steel ain't what is used to be back in the Seventies.

We will post some specials for the Jets game. And, feel free to check out  Smokey Joe's Superbowl Menu

Blizzard Blogging

Well, we here at Smokey Joe's have so much to say. 2011 is a New Year and with it we launch our new blog. All of our thoughts are circulating much like the blizzard that is brewing outside.  You will hear us opine about a great number of topics but mostly about food, fun, and bbq. Moshe Morrison, our masgiach, manager, and all around mensch will be weighing in mostly with recipes and menu ideas. Moshe is a real foodie and we are lucky to have him here with us.
And I have a lot of thoughts about service, catering ideas, and new bbq ideas that I can't wait to get started. BUT, the really great thing about creating a blog is not that we get to spout off, but that  you, dear customer, get to share your thoughts about all of these topics. What makes a blog great is the dialog that is created between Smokey Joe's and its customers. So, speak up. I know you won't be shy.

p.s. As I noted, the first blizzard of '11 is brewing outside. We will be open on Wednesday and will be offering a 15% blizzard beater discount to all dine in and take out customers. Also, we will have delivery available once the snow has stopped. You have to mention "Blizzard Beater" to get the 15% discount on your dine-in or take-out order.
