Any Good BBQ Left In Queens?
- Sleepy LaBeef
With Pearson's Texas BBQ in Hunters Point closed and
the alleged Mississippi BBQ Shack in south Queens also
apparently shuttered, is there any place in this
borough to get anything near to comparable to these two
now legendary places? Please help me!
I am sorry to say that I cannot help you in this quest. But as a resident of Hunters Point, I too, am saddened with the loss of this neighborhood gem. The counter person always predicted my delight when he included, in my order, the shell of roasted pig skin the pulled pork was extracted from--at no charge. I'd rush home and before devouring anything I'd actually paid for, I would savor the tenderness under the crackling shell. So that nothing went to waste, any leftovers always ended up in a braised dish. Sigh...
For the past three years we've hosted our Oscar night party with their delicacies...I do not know what we'll do this year.
