    I second the Fette Sau recommendation. I've lived in Williamsburg Brooklyn for 10 years now. They were one of the first real BBQ restaurants in New York, and over the past several years there has been a real growing movement (at least a trend) for real BBQ restuarants. Fette Sau remains my favorite. They change the menu based on the meats they get in (usually always have the core staples, like shoulder, ribs and brisket) but they aren't afraid to experiment. Anytime I see smoked pork cheek or smoked beef tongue (the tongue sliced real thin like pastrami) I am all over it. The owners also have a Belgian beer bar (Spuyten Duvel) across the street with a nice backyard and many serious, rare and delicious beers on tap and in dusty bottles.

Anyway Good luck with your decision and I hope you are happy with it.

    Barry - I have the same dilemma. I've never been in the pro food business, but I've seen enough Food Network shows to know that it is massive work for little return. Plus, I only tend to only want to cook what I like to eat ... and yeah, people (in general) suck and I don't think I could go back to dealing with the general public. But other than that it sounds perfect! <ha!>

    Awesome aspiration! Good beer, good cheer, and BBQ sounds like a great way to live.

    Hi there Marauderer,

    I'm actually not from Brooklyn, but I visit the city as often as I can; my best friend lives in Manhattan. What you say is correct, with so many people in one place, BBQ will happen!

    I'm doing ribs this weekend and will post some pics for sure. Also, I notice you're from GA. I went to a BBQ festival once, and the best thing I had there was a whole hog sandwich from a Georgian joint. Nice to make your acquaintance.

    Funny you mention that - I have a dream of moving to Ireland and opening a "real" BBQ joint. My sister lives in Dublin and when she was in the States over Thanksgiving, she mentioned there is only one place in the whole city that tries to do Q, but she said the quality is not great and still the lines to the place go around the block. She said they seem to sell out of whatever they've smoked daily. Thinking that would be a sweet retirement, although the work and hours would probably be more than I'm putting in now at my day job - it would be a labor of love. A little shop and a smoker, - just bringing in enough to make a living for me and my lovely bride... <sigh>.

    Hi PMA from Brooklyn. I imagime any city that has 12M+ residents will have a BBQ following even if a bit difficult to find on occasion. I look forward to your posts and Pics when you can. Looking at your sig you are not a novice to Q and glad to make your acquaintance.

    Fette Sau, Brooklyn

    Believe it or not, NYC does indeed host a few BBQ places that are, IMHO, quite decent. One of these establishments is Fette Sau in the Williamsburgh section of Brooklyn. They go Berkshire pork all the way, and also serve beef ribs, cheeks, brisket, and even pastrami and steaks. The meat is heavily smoked with a meteorite bark. That is not everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoyed the pound and half plate of pulled pork and St. Louis style ribs I had there.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
