Smoke is mysterious, fire is uncertain, and pit men are expensive. So the mystery, uncertainty, and expense of taking the chance to make great barbecue is being replaced by the quantifiable methods of always making pretty good 'cue.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Gradys


Grady's Spread

Experience was a little rushed, because we arrive late.  But they stay open long enough to take our order, and we eat on the hood of Double-Boner's car.  Good joint with nice folks serving up solid Q.


  • Pork - Very moist. Good flavors and textures, with lots 'o parts in here!


  • Corn Sticks - Good, but a bit chewier than our earlier pups... not quite fresh?Grady's Order Window
  • Slaw - Very good. Crisp with just a hint of cream.  Still fresh, even at the end of the day.
  • Dip - Hard to tell, since we couldn't get it in a separate container... but I'd say more like Stephenson's than Skylight.
  • Banana Pudding - Fresh & tasty! VERY good!


  • Great drive-up appeal: Good looking joint... out in the sticks, with a large woodpile.Grady's BBQ
  • Unfortunately, we get here too late to get the full treatment & tour.  They close at 3p today, but agree to stay a few minutes until we arrive.  Nice folks!
