I've been to John Brown Smokehouse twice now, and it is delicious. The BBQ is good but the cornbread is what I came back for. I would argue it is the best cornbread out there. So many BBQ places serve a dense and dry piece of cornbread that you have to slather with butter to even eat. Now don't get me wrong, I don't mind a reason to soak something in butter but this time it just isn't right. Cornbread should be moist, soft, with chunks of corn mixed in. And that is exactly how they do it here! Theirs is so soft, so moist, it's almost on the verge of being something like a corn bread pudding. It is worth a trip just to eat this.
The BBQ is really good as well. This last time I got a sliced brisket sandwich with my large side of cornbread. Although I prefer a brisket with a little pink to it still, they serve theirs well done, which is common. With the 1/2 lb sandwich and the large side of cornbread it was really more than I should have done. They are generous with the meet but at $18 for both I'd hope so. Their main BBQ sauce is delicious as well. Not as peppery as say a Texas style, but still very rich and flavorful. They have a spicey option too that has a good chili kick to it.
Definitely will be back again, and again, and again. My favorite style of food (BBQ) with the best cornbread ever made, what could beat this?
