Great place. Had a NY Strip sandwich, brisket, and hot link. Also loved the burnt end beans and German potato salad.

Caught the very end of lunch service. Good brisket, turkey, and pulled pork, but the bread was the star!

Arrived hungry, left with a hand cart (actually 2 lbs. of brisket & 2 lbs of pulled pork...maybe to share with my friends back home. "This is what real barbecue is!') While I was picking up my order I woofed down the pulled pork sandwich. Each bite was moist & smoked to perfection. I also had the smoked collard greens...I wish they sold these in the grocery store. The greens were done just right. Not over cooked to soggy mush, but with a slight crunch with a little pulled pork to boot. I'll be sure to visit when I'm back. I love this place.

This place is delightful change up for Texas Cue, I liked the brisket the best out of turkey and pulled pork.

Had the ribs, brisket,turkey and sausage. All excellent. The special pastrami ribs are worth waiting to come on a Tuesday.

Lunch in July 3rd. Perfect brisket pulled pork on the two meat plate. Not over seasoned but just right. Homemade pickles are delicious as is the homemade bread it is served with. The coleslaw is unremarkable but the potato salad rocks. Good service, good specials and good atmosphere. Definitely will be back. Yum.

Brisket was moist and perfect. Enjoyed the sausage; went well with the home made BBQ sauce. Sides were okay; will have to come back to try their more eclectic fare.

Not a typical joint by any means, the Granary is part of the flashy new Pearl retail/residential complex and occupies a renovated nineteenth-century home with high ceilings and dark-brown wood trim. The vibe is hipster carnivore: the music is modern, and the walls are covered with barbecue folk art, such as a painting of a pig with the names of his anatomy, en français. Speaking of pig, the Granary serves Carolina-style pulled pork that is chewy, smoky, and almost sweet (some of the strands had a black crust to them that were even chewier), but don’t worry, they also do excellent Texas fare, such as a lean, smoky brisket with a perfect red-black crust. Our slices were a little dry, but the flavor had permeated deep into the meat. Sausage, turkey breast, and St. Louis ribs are all strong choices here. The German potato salad had bacon and herbs; the buttermilk coleslaw was easy on the sauce—so that we could actually taste the cabbage. The barbecue is served at lunch—from eleven until it runs out (at twelve-thirty, three of the five meats were gone). The dinnertime menu is more elaborate—Szechuan duck leg and Moroccan lamb shoulder. Like we said, not your typical joint.
