BBQ in Southern CT?

cs2i Apr 1, 2007 06:03 AM

a few months ago, maybe a year+ i saw a special on the Food Ntwk about a BBQ place in New Cannan, New Haven or some place in southern CT. it looked good. this guy quit his job, took out loans, inverstors, poured his soul into it- his wife/family supported the venture, yadda yadda yadda. i wanted to go, but never made it....

anyone heard of it?

thx. cs

    Was it Joe Grate's? If so it is on Dixwell Ave in Hamden.

        AFAIK, Joe Grate still has a stand at the NHC Cutters games. When we were there last year, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

      No good Q in New Canaan, unfortunately

        Uncle Willies in New Haven on Whalley Ave and in Waterbury?
        Ok IMHO not great.

          Could've been Jeff's Cusine in Norwalk (I know he was featured on Al Roker's show) It's take out/catering...but it is amazing!

          Or Ash Creek in Norwalk? Smokey Joe's in Stamford?

          those are the only Q places in Southern, CT I know of.

            I saw the same show. I am 99% positive that the place is in Westport, although the name eludes me.

              You're thinking about Bobby Q's, which is on Main St. in Westport.......(old Onion Alley space). Solid ribs.

                Oh no they didn't! Did they really have to name a barbecue place with such a cutesy name? Major points off.

              I'm not sure about the place in Westport but i've seen the food network show on Jeff's cuisine in Norwalk (i think its South Norwalk). supposedly pretty good. Try The cookhouse in darien or in Port chester, NY has a placed called Q. Pulled pork sandwich is off the chain
