Fish Tacos

Having gone to Smokestack Urban Barbecue many times in the past and enjoyed the traditional bbq/brisket, I thought I would try something a little different.  Lately tacos have been my food crave having read the Crispy Fired Tilapia Taco review from Mezcal Tequila Cantina and, luckily, Smokestack had a few taco choices on the menu….
