4th Annual Barbecue Night needs a site.

  • 9

We are a group of in- and out-of-towners planning our 4th annual Barbecue night. Have been to Blue Smoke, Jason Timberlake's Place, and someplace downtown (can't remember the name). Looking for something new. Willing to go as far as Dinosaur Barbecue, but would prefer something closer if anyone can help. We are a group of 10-15. Thanks!

      +1 for RUB. They even serve sweet iced tea and sliced white bread. Doesn't get a whole lot more authentic than that (coming from a Southerner).

    2. Hill Country on 26th.

        hill country has ayce ribs, chicken, brisket and sized on monday nights. IMO, one of the best deals in nyc. The chicken is good, the ribs have moved from bad to mediocre, the brisket is great.

      2. Dinosaur BBQ is my fav in the city, so I say there if you want the best food.

        Besides the options listed above, you should consider Daisy Mays. with 10-15 you could do the Big Pig Gig - whole pig and a few sides for $480

          I can't speak to the relative merit of the Big Pig Gig, but on my first and last trip to Daisy Mays we were thoroughly unimpressed and actually left the overwhelming majority of our food uneaten.

          I like hill country quite a bit - they can get crowded but its a big space - with 10-15 you may be able to make a reservation and pre-order a set menu. agree with vinouspleasure that the brisket is really good, have had ok to good ribs, and im a fan of a number of their sides. my one hill country gripe is that the beef ribs, in particular, are a terrible deal (all the meats are sold by the pound, so a single beef rib can end up being ridiculously expensive and just ok - but im not a beef rib fan in any case).

            I think Hill Country is a better choice than RUB, although I go to both. Hill country has more room, and it's a little bit cooler since you buy stuff by the pound. Or take a trip to Fette Sau where the BBQ is better.

            1. re: foodwhisperer

              no table service at Hill Country, if I remember correctly. that's annoying.

              1. re: coasts

                i believe that in the set-menu/group dining option in mentioned above, they bring the food to you.

                that same part of their page mentions semi-private alcoves seating up to 25.
