When barbecue is super good, there’s really only one thing that can make it better: whiskey. Eat up some award-winning ‘cue from Andy Husbands on Tuesday, August 13th alongside a few picks of American whiskey at The Smoke Shop in Kendall Square. If you’re not familiar with the term bottled-in-bond whiskeys, “The Whiskey Professor” Bernie Lubbers will teach you all about why that designation is so special and how it serves as a marker of authenticity. You’ll get a full rundown of whiskey’s history during the family-style feast, which kicks off at 6:00pm. Tickets are $42.50 plus a small processing fee — snatch yours up quickly because events always sell out.
