Hot on the heels of BrisketTown and Fletcher's BBQ comes pit master Hugh Mangum's barbecue joint, Mighty Quinn's BBQ, further fanning the flames of Gotham's smoked-meat craze. Raised in Texas, Mangum marries the purist lean-meat approach of the Lone Star State with the vinegar-dressed styles of the Carolinas—the resulting 'cue drew lines at his Smorgasburg booth and set the stage for this brick-and-mortar debut. As of Wednesday, diners can chomp on the six kinds of barbecue—including brisket, pulled pork and spareribs—cooked over apple, cherry and oak woods in a 6,000-pound smoker. To drink, there's 16 American drafts, like Founders' Dirty Bastard Ale. 103 Second Ave at 6th St (212-677-3733)
