You don’t have to go south to enjoy great barbecue. Here are three of our favorite joints in the Big Apple.

 

 

Mighty Quinn’s

Mighty Quinn’s first made waves at Smorgasborg before opening its fast casual, brick-and-mortar location in East Village. Pitmaster Hugh Mangum is known in the city for his authentic smoky taste and perfectly blended dry rub.

Fette Sau

The name is actually German for “fat pig,” but this auto shop turned barbecue joint is known for making some of the best American fare in Williamsburg. In true backyard barbecue fashion, Fette Sau serves their food at communal tables, often with a line stretching around the room. Favorites include loin chops, pulled pork shoulder and beef ribs, in addition to classic sides like baked beans.

John Brown Smokehouse

Serving Kansas City-style barbecue, John Brown Smokehouse is a no-frills spot in Long Island City that specializes in burnt ends, crispy yet tender strips of pork dipped in house-made barbecue sauce.

EzPacking Transparent Toiletry Bag

Plastic-averse travelers may shudder at the thought of using a resealable, zip-closed plastic bag for travel-sized liquids each and every time they travel. While some sturdier brands can be used multiple times, there’s a possibility the plastic could rip or the zipper could malfunction, therefore resulting in a free-for-all liquid disaster in your luggage. More secure toiletry bags can be safer bets, but fancy fabrics and designs can conceal the contents within, making them futile travel companions when it comes to TSA screenings.
