There’s no need for New Yorkers to travel down south for awesome BBQ anymore. Rib and pork lovers can now find all the ribs and pork they need by only going as far as Brooklyn! New York’s most populous borough began to recognize the demand for barbecue years ago but only recently have so many different delicious options cropped up. Here are some of the best new spots that even connoisseurs will want to try.

Fette Sau

This Williamsburg wonder has been alive and kicking for a few years now but it hasn’t lost its momentum. German for “fat pig,” Fette Sau offers meat by the pound. You can line up and choose from an awesome assortment slapped onto paper plates and pair it with one of their excellent tap brews.

Mable’s Smokehouse

The Williamsburg waterfront area got even more trendy when Mable’s Smokehouse showed up. Here you can find authentic Texas style BBQ in a wide-open old-down-home atmosphere that will make you feel like you’ve stumbled into a Dallas ranch for a night. Oh, and you can order for delivery when you want the BBQ to come to you.

Dinosaur BBQ

Originally started as a concession stand near Albany, Dinosaur BBQ has been serving up award-winning meats and sauces since the early 80s. Their new Park Slope location has the same killer offerings like St. Louis style BBQ Pork Ribs, Brisket and Creole Spiced Deviled Eggs.

Little Brother BBQ

Get your fill of pork sandwiches and slaw at this new hot spot in Clinton Hill. In addition to filling portions and awesome mac and cheese, they also offer a number of vegan and vegetarian options for the non-meat folks out there!

Smoke Joint

Smoke Joint sits on a busy intersection in Fort Greene and stays busy with all the foot traffic passing by their open windows, allowing passer-bys a peek at the yummy soul food meat and veggie plates. Try the brisket with a side of collared greens.

Fletcher’s does pit BBQ and it does it right. Situated near Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal, it’s a laid-back joint that offers piles of St. Louis Ribs smoked over maple and red oak. Even the baked beans are pit-smoked – a real St. Louis touch.

Royal Rib House

This place is a Brooklyn classic that stands up to the test of time. Newcomers are cropping up left and right but the Royal Rib House has reigned as the go-to spot for Caroline Barbeque for over 60 years. The short ribs are a must but you won’t be mad about the fried chicken sandwich either.
