I need recs for good BBQ along the length of CT-15 from I-84 to NY

I am new to Chowhound postings (this being my first) and thought I would seek the advice of you Chowhound regulars. My wife and I are traveling to Adelphi University to visit our son and recently came across CT-15. Much easier to drive vs. I-95; I am looking for good BBQ anywhere along this route that is not too far from the exit. Any help will be gladly appreciated.

  1. You mention I-84. Where are you coming from?

      We live in Natick, MA and come down the Mass Pike to I-84.

    2. This is not a food answer, but a navigational tip. I would take 84 to 684 to the Hutch through New York. It's best to avoid southern Connecticut altogether. That being said, I don't know any BBQ along either route.

        If they do the 84 to 684 thing, JBs Barbeque in Brewster is right off Exit 1, 84W between Danbury & Brewster. BBQ is good, sides are just okay. super casual.

      2. Along your route...There's Danny's Little taste of Texas near the evergreen walk complex in s windsor, and never been, but I hear good things about SouthernQue in Meriden

        1. You can do 84 to 8 to 15 - and stop off 84 in Farmington CT at Flaggstead Smokehouse on Farmington Ave. The owner is from Austin, TX, and has excellent, authentic Texas BBQ - the brisket is amazing. It's no more than 10 minutes off the highway, and a straight shot back afterwards.

          1. Does no one like Little Mark's Big BBQ but me (off 84 in Vernon)? In any case, Flagstaff has been on my to-try list for a while now.
