Ribs in the Hudson Valley

Riglde37 Jun 30, 2010 02:12 PM

I need some serious ribs! Looking for a couple recommendations for the Hudson Valley area. I'm from Monroe...but willing to travel a bit for something really worth it. Please help! I have been craving them for weeks now!

    Big Ws ribs were waaaaay too smoky for me. I loved the chicken with all that smoke flavor but not the ribs. I prefer my ribs a lot less dry/smoky and a touch moister/sweeter. I like the ribs at JBs bbq in Brewster better.

      I like the Hickory Smokehouse, just outside Kingston, NY at Exit 19.

      Just go west on Route 28 a mile or two and it is on the left.

      Great ribs and slaw. Smoked turkey legs.

        Certainly Big W's.

        But also Round Up Texas Smoked BBQ, on the west side of Route 9, just south of the intersection with Route 301.

        Great brisket -- I prefer the lean version -- and my wife loves their ribs. More take-out than eat-in, but isn't that true for a lot of BBQ joints...

        Barnstormers on 9W in Fort Montgomery. (Used to be in Newburgh off 17K.)

                Stay away from Hudson's Fish and Ribs in Fishkill, their ribs are dis-gusting.

                I second Big W.

                  The place in Newburgh is Brotha's BBQ, about half a mile south of 5 points intersection on Route 32. Pretty good. Try the rib tips special... tasty and inexpensive.

                  There's also the place on Route 44 in Gardiner, about 100 yards west of Route 32. Pretty good, but only open Saturday, Sunday and Monday until he runs out of food.

                    I second the recommendation for Brothers BBQ. It's in New Windsor, right on the Cornwall town line. Their ribs are terrific, as is pretty much everything else.

                      I have been meaning to go to this place. Brothers BBQ. I kinda forgot about it to tell you the truth. I can't wait!!

                      Sad to report that Brotha's BBQ I mentioned above was burned to the ground by a fire a couple of days ago. Hope they get a chance to rebuild...
