Hometown Bar-b-que

Grab your Wet-Naps—Brooklyn’s BBQ renaissance shows no signs of cooling off. Opening September 12th, the wood-paneled 120-seat Hometown Bar-b-que  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). Check out the menu below. 454 Van Brunt St at Reed St, Red Hook, Brooklyn (347-294-4644)
