Craig Samuel and Ben Grossman (Peaches, the Smoke Joint) rejiggered their Bed-Stuy café the Pantry into a spin-off of their Clinton Hill 'cue joint, Little Brother BBQ. Alongside coffee, house-baked pastries (lemon-poppyseed cake, bourbon-glazed cake) and sandwiches (chopped short rib with fried egg), the hickory-paneled space serves barbecue items like pit-smoked pork shoulder and sausage. German and Belgian beers (Radeburger, Seef) and a custom-brewed SingleCut lager called Howlin' Wolf are on tap.

Mmmm Mmmmm!  That is all I'd have to say about Little Brother if it weren't rude to leave such a brief review.  My wife, a vegetarian, asked to go here a few years ago.  Once I tried their side dishes I understood why.  But it wasn't until the pulled pork and brisket hit my buds that I declared my new favorite little brother.  (Sorry actual little bro. Become a pit master and I'll bump you back up!)  This place clearly knows what it's doing when it comes to slow cooked, tender, juicy meat and how to package it into an unforgettable, lip-smacking meal.  For your first visit I suggest you go with a large group and share things so you can experience a wide rand of menu options.  After a while you'll probably find your jam and get the one or two thing that rock your socks the most.  Just remember those socks are not to be confused for moist towelettes.
