Best BBQ in NYC?

sharonj Apr 13, 2011 06:33 PM

My friends and I were going to go to Blue Smoke but it seems to have gone downhill. What are the other alternatives? Is Texas Ranger BBQ/Legend in Jackson Heights, Queens a contender for one of the better ones in the city?

We've been to Virgil's and RUB, and some of us have had Fette Sau's BBQ.

    Fette Sau and RUB (especially the Burnt Ends) are up there for NYC; others that are different but not significantly better:

    Hill Country (Texas Style)
    Dinosaur (Upstate NY Roadhouse Style)
    Daisy Mae (but there have been mixed reviews)
    all in Manhattan

    Keep away from Legend (seriosly downhill) and Smoke Joint (Bkln)
