Johnson’s BBQ Shack 100 Byrd Way Greenwood In.

Johnson’s BBQ started out as a food truck. Then they opened a shack in Bargersville Indiana. We tried them as a food truck on the Northside of Indianapolis. Now they are serving up Q in the old Jonathan Byrd building. Well a piece of it as the building is huge.

I definitely wanted to try their brisket. Several joints sell good pulled pork. Basically the difference between them is the amount of exposure to the smoker, but brisket is still elusive.

The brisket that is sold here is excellent. Tender and moist and all the smokiness you would want and it was only 10 bucks. I can spend more than that for a burger at several joints. I also like that it is sliced. Some joints “chop” their brisket and call it a day. Chopping the point is one thing but the flat really should be sliced. At least for me.

So overall I think this joint is definitely a keeper. The growth of this brand is indicative of the product they sell. This location is in the process of getting a liquor license so folks can get a beer here and not go somewhere else after eating. I mean beer and Q go hand in hand don’t they?
