Does anyone know where I can purchase a GOOD barbecue brisket to eat at home?
Nassau, suffolk or queens preferably.
Turtle Crossing in Easthampton, when they re-open in April, although it may be a little far out east for you. Owner is from Oklahoma and knows his brisket AND barbq.
Fine bbq brisket is to be had in Queens, at Pearson's Barbecue/Legends Bar in Jackson Heights. Don't know about Long Island.
I always thought of that as more woodbury. Yes, I was going to suggest this place too- It's called Poppa Ricks. It's a shack by the side of the road on Jericho Turnpike. 135 to the end, go east for several miles, it will be on your right, set back from the road (with a sign saying (I think) Texas BBQ. There is a wood carving place - with large wood sculptures, if I remember correctly right next to it.
Below is a link, which also has a link to a review in the LI Press. Some chowhounds have had issues with the place, but I think it's pretty good.
