Barbecue Fever

Brooklyn Texas1 Comment

We've written about barbecue on this site before, but it's true that it's less prevalent on this site than other Texas food gems like queso and breakfast tacos. The truth is, NYC can hold its own with a smoker. There's no room for hemming and hawing about how impossible it is to find good brisket outside of Texas (or North Carolina or Alabama or Tennessee) because yes, now it is possible to revel in regional meat delights all over the city. It might hurt to admit, but even the barbecue editor (yes) at Texas Monthly has said that some of New York's barbecue rivals places in Texas. Our ultimate favorites for true Central Texas style barbecue? Hometown and Hill Country for the meat, Mighty Quinn's for the sides. But send us to any of places on our barbecue round up and we'll be in meat bliss.
