New BBQ place coming to Milwaukee in June Thu, 02/18/10 6:58 AM (permalink)
From today's 

Smoke Shack will bring barbeque and more to the Third Ward
[font="'lucida grande', sans-serif"] Smoke Shack, a collaborative venture between Joe and Angie Sorge (SwigAJ BombersWater Buffalo and Sullivan's), Scott Baitinger (Streetza), Robert Joseph (Joseph Property Development) and Flux Design, will replace MJ's, 322 N. Milwaukee St., early this summer.
MJ's will close when its lease ends at the end of March.
Smoke Shack will be the third project in the Historic Third Ward for Sorge who worked with Flux on Swig, 217 N. Broadway, and Joseph and Flux at Water Buffalo, 249 N. Water St. Baitinger will join the group bringing his creativity from Streetza and his marketing and public relations savvy from his agency "day job."
"We've learned a lot together as a group," said Sorge. "This project is more than a year in the works and, yes, it will be our third in the Third Ward."
Smoke Shack's team will revamp the entire building, transform the outdoor patio and utilize the plentiful parking that's owned by partner Robert Joseph.
Sorge promises a "funky, cool space" and that the group will "take a pretty unique approach" to the dining experience and the food.
As for the barbeque, I'll have more specifics soon. But, with the quality of AJ Bombers, Water Buffalo and Swig and the addition of another food mind in Scott Baitinger, Smoke Shack should be able to more than take a creative spin on a tradition that's near and dear to Milwaukee's heart, BBQ.
Watch for Smoke Shack to open in "mid-June," according to Sorge.
