  • Eat. Everything.
  • Pork spare ribs are excellent, brisket good, mac & cheese amazing.

  • If there's a special meat, GET IT!
  • The lamb belly is the best thing you will eat at any BBQ joint in the city.
  • Order the beef ribs. They are massiveextremely rich, pleasingly salty meat under a black cloak of pepper. Right down to the bone, the flavors of smoke are sweet and lush and long.
  • My friend and I are very picky eaters. But we came here today, and we agreed that this is one of the-- if not THE-- best BBQ in all of NYC. Worth the trek to Red Hook. Grab some Steve's key lime too!
