Toronto BBQ week, presented by Samuel Adams, had officially ended yesterday. There were a total of 15 BBQ restaurants participating throughout the GTA, offering a $15 dish that included a pint of Samuel Adams Boston Lager.

One of those participating restaurants was Greenwood Smokehouse BBQ, located in Greektown right on Danforth. The restaurant specializes in their house-smoked meats including pulled pork, smoked chicken, brisket, pork ribs, and much more. The interior of the restaurant had a rustic charm with fun decor throughout the place.

 Samuel Adams Boston Lager

We started off with a pint of Samuel Adams Boston Lager which had a full-bodied flavour with some citrus and sweet notes. This was my kind of beer!

Smoked Pastrami Short Ribs ($15 incl. beer)
Cooked in a wood-log smoke with a side of roasted cauliflower puree,
mustard jus, pickled radishes & chive oil.

The portion was quite small, at around 4 oz. of meat, but was beautifully presented on a bed of cauliflower puree. The short ribs had a lot of different flavours from the in-house rub and wood-log smoke - very delicious! I especially liked the creamy cauliflower puree, along with the mustard jus and chive oil. All the components in the dish worked very well together to produce a fantastic, flavourful meal! Too bad the portion wasn't bigger haha.

Tennessee Hot Chicken ($17)
Buttermilk brined, bone-in chicken crispy fried to order,
then smothered in house-made spicy sauce.
Topped with collards and served on challah. 

Kevin decided to order the Tennessee Hot Chicken that was offered in their regular menu. I was able to try some of his chicken which had delicious tangy and spicy flavours. The collard greens had a slight bitterness which was perfect in balancing out the dish.

It was a nice experience trying out Greenwood Smokehouse for Toronto's BBQ week because now I've found a great BBQ restaurant that offers a variety of house-smoked meats. We will definitely be back for more!
