Hometown Bar-b-que

Red Hook
Grab your Wet-Naps—Brooklyn’s BBQ renaissance shows no signs of cooling off. This wood-paneled 120-seat smokehouse is the latest addition to the scene, a collaboration between self-taught pit master Billy Durney and restaurateur Christopher Miller (Smith & Mills, Warren 77). Inspired by his Brooklyn upbringing and travels through the South, Durney turns out 'cue with global influences. Dig into smoked meats both American (Texas-style brisket, North Carolina–inspired baby back ribs) and international (smoked jerk chicken, lamb belly banh mi). The drinks match the honky-tonk menu: Bartenders pour draft beers (Smuttynose, Shiner Bock) and American whiskeys (Van Brunt Stillhouse).

Forget Fette Sau, Briskettown, and Mable's.  Hometown BBQ is my favorite Brooklyn barbeque joint in NYC.  With their southern-style  mouth watering brisket, ribs, and pulled pork, Hometown is worth the trek to Red Hook.  Beyond the standard BBQ fare, Hometown also offers delicious lamb bahn mi sandwiches and pulled pork tacos.  Come hungry but don't forget to save room for dessert as their banana cream pudding it as good as it gets, and trust me you won't want to share.  On Friday and Saturday nights they bring in a live band to complete that authentic Texas bbq house feel.  Try and arrive early as it does tend to get crowded.
