    Big Shanty Smokehouse - Kennesaw, GA

    Excellent BBQ

    Need to find it, right down the road from me!




      Have you been there leiflin? What did you try? What did you think of the flavor, tenderness, seasoning? How are their sauces? Let's try to get some more info here for other members searching for reviews. Thank you!


        Hello guys! Have been there many times. I go and get my fill every time I am in the area for work. I generally have the meat platter with their Sausage, Sliced pork and the ribs. Great smoke flavor and their basic sauce is very tasty. I have been to the popular Williamson's BBQ several times and I personally think Big Shanty is much better and the mom and pops feel makes it that much better.


          Was here this past Friday. Had their sliced brisket and pulled pork plate. Very good!


            Was just there today 3/29/2016 at around 12:30PM. had the three meat combo. ribs, pulled pork,

            Brisket - Seasoning was Ok for me. I like a little bit more pepper in my brisket personally, so it was lacking in the flavor department. the meat itself was dry.

            Pulled Pork - Seasoning was on the mild side again. here I like more of the sugar and barking action that comes from that. there wasn't much there. I don't even think I had bark on the portion they gave me. The tenderness was there but a little dry for me.

            Ribs - for me when you say you have killer ribs then I expect killer ribs. the ribs still had the membrane on it on the bottom and was pulling away from the meat so after I pulled the rest of it off there goes that awesome bark with it. as for the meat it was again dry but also over cooked. when you take a bite the entire piece of meat comes off with pieces of the bone. so for me that was a little over done I like a bite through.

            - the sauce was good. it had a nice kick to it as well which I like

            it may have been that the meat was just sitting there to long. most likely that's what it was. I would love to give this place another shot but I was just traveling for business and stopped by for lunch.

            On a scale of 1 - 10 I give it a solid 5

              I've been back since I posted originally in this thread and I agree with you on most if not all of your points above. It was pretty disappointing. I also think the brisket I had back in August was not very good I just had no point of reference for it.

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
