With the recent influx of badass barbecue to NYC, you might be feeling both hungry and overwhelmed. You can calm your ‘cue anxiety now, because Time Out New York’s “Guide to the Best BBQ in NYC” is now on newstands and available online in full right here.
The all-encompassing guide covers everything from NYC’s top smokehouses (both new and classic) for plates of ribs, brisket, and sausage, to a roundup of the country’s best bourbon so you’ll have something to wash down your meat with. Of particular note (and awesomeness) is a snout-to-tail BBQ map detailing the best dish in NYC for every part of the pig. Best pig neck is awarded to Pok Pok NY, and best tail goes to Mission Chinese Food. There’s also a profile of the eight reigning pit masters in the city, including Josh Bowen of Long Island City’s John Brown Smokehouse and Daniel Delaney of BrisketTown.
